Environmental Monitoring System (EMS)

EMS monitors environmental factors like light, sound, temperature, humidity, power, water leakage, airflow, smoke and much more. It keeps detailed records of those factors with a live video streaming using a high quality camera.  EMS display useful information on software interface, which gives operator/user one stop dashboard with alarming facility in the abnormal condition.

EMS prevents calamitous situations resulting from climate and power related issues within monitored environment, this can reduce revenue loss, save guard reputations and prevent life threatening accidents. EMS best suits for the Building Management System, Monitoring data center / IT, telecom, healthcare and food storage Industry.

EMS-Architecture

Fig 1.0 The EMS Architecture : Different types of sensors are connected to EMS Monitoring Device, those sensors are installed at various strategic locations , The sensor input is received by EMS device and post those information to the software application with different types of alerts via SNMP/SMS/Email etc. Alerts could be set by user when particular condition is achieved or data has crossed to his threshold value.

EMS Device

EMS devices comes with wide range of models, it differs by On-Board Sensors, External Sensors and other hardware features. It has capacity to connect various analogue, digital sensors . (see below figure)

EMS-Device

Fig 2.0 The EMS Monitoring Device on mounting bracket.

EMS device,

  • Monitor temperature, humidity, dew point, smoke, water leakage etc.
  • Four analog inputs for dry-contact or 0-5 VDC sensors.
  • Digital sensor port (connect up to 4 sensors using splitters).
  • Set alerts via email, email-to-SMS, SNMP and voice.
  • Relay output for external device control.
  • Control relay via alarm or manually through web.

EMS Monitoring Device is a self-contained unit with on-board temperature and humidity/dew-point sensors. It has four analog inputs and supports up to 4 digital sensors (using a splitter). There is also a relay output for triggering external devices, such as an auto-dialer,alarm etc.

EMS Monitoring Device allows users to keep an eye on secured area from a secure software interface and receive SNMP, E-mail, text message and voice call alert notifications when user-adjustable thresholds are exceeded.

Software Interface

Only a web browser is needed to access and configure the EMS Monitoring Device. The web interface provides a remote user with real-time sensor readings with graphs, access to logs and manual control features. Access to these and other functions are protected by up to three access account levels.  The EMS device provides encryption for secure communication with web browsers using HTTPS.

Alarms

We can set alarm thresholds (up to 50) to define sensor boundaries and specify what to do if there is a condition crossed. Multiple thresholds values are assigned to a particular sensor for alarm escalation.
