Web Features of Valarm Tools Cloud for Industrial IoT Applications, Remote Monitoring, + Telemetry Solutions
UPDATE: Have a look at this Overview Video of Valarm Tools Cloud Features!
Analytical Mapping: Valarm Tools Cloud lets you see paths, distances, average speeds, stopped time, idle time, coverage areas, and Esri ArcGIS street, satellite, Open Street Map, National Geographic, and more maps of all of your devices with Valarm.
Command Center: Real-time tracking of devices in the Valarm Tools site, if a device has cell network service and is set to upload its current location.
As an open platform, Valarm provides you with easy-to-use APIs. With our APIs you can integrate your Industrial IoT, telemetry, and remote sensor monitoring information into all of your business intelligence and analytics systems, like the Esri ArcGIS platform. The Valarm API ID / Key system that allows you to securely work with your mobile or stationary Valarm sensor data. Example APIs that use the API ID / Key pair:
- Retrieve a list of all your defined Device Groups
- Retrieve metadata details for an individual Device Group
- How long has your asset (e.g., generator) been running?
- Since when was the freezer temperature above 0C/32F?
- Has your asset been operating for a critical number of hours over the last month?
- Time to run the recommended maintenance routine?
- How much time passed while that switch was flipped on?
These are some critical remote monitoring and Industrial IoT questions. You can easily answer these with the Time at Threshold Totalizer feature in Valarm Tools Cloud.
Monitoring Water Usage & Flow with Valarm Tools Cloud Totalizers: With the Totalizer functionality, Valarm Tools Cloud keeps track of water flow and how much water gets used by you or your customers. Also have a look at this customer story of Remote Water Well Telemetry using a Real-Time Web Dashboard to see Levels and Flow Meters.
Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) for Vehicles, Trucks, and Trailers with Cloud Mapping Integration: Monitoring vehicle and trailer tire pressures in real-time saves you time, money, and lives since driving with under-inflated tires increases your risk for dangerous events like:
- Tire failures
- Less tread life
- Less fuel efficiency
We’ve integrated Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) into Valarm Tools Cloud. This allows you to monitor the tire pressure and tire temperature on any tires in real-time. These sensors screw onto each tire and wirelessly send the latest information to the TPMS base unit via radio. The TPMS base unit then connects to a Valarm sensor hub / connector device via RS-232. The TPMS is just 1 of many sensors and factors that you can monitor with Valarm. This article is a follow-up to the general vehicle, truck, and trailer tracking story with a bunch of sensors for monitoring things like presence of cargo, doors opening / closing, water or fluid presence.
Device Groups: Organize your devices into groups. You may create as many groups as you need, and devices may be placed into any number of groups, for totally flexible organization and visualization.
Device Manager: control your fleet of Valarm devices, changing their descriptions, color (for visualization tools), enabled/disabling, and managing subscription credits (set expiration dates).
Device Details: View raw data from any of your Valarm devices, using a search tool. Plot graphs for the various sensors, and download your search results for further analysis.
Download Valarm data in .csv or .kml format from Valarm Tools and perform advanced analysis in any other program such as a GIS (1, 2), Excel, Google Earth, or ask us about data analysis consulting options.
Email Alerts: The Device Manager will allow you to setup email alerts for each registered device.
Multi-User Account Sharing + Management with Valarm Tools Cloud: You have a Valarm account, and now you wish that you could have another user manage and / or view your devices. This would be a very handy feature would it not? Yes, it would. That’s why Valarm already allows you to do just that! Allow any number of authorized users to access your Valarm devices. Your users simply register for a free account on tools.valarm.net, then you can grant them read-only or administrative access!
Public Trackers: create and publish any number of “Public Tracker” codes for your devices. These date/time-controlled codes allow you to share the location and destination of any Valarm device with your customers, suppliers or any other interested parties. Just create a public tracker, then share the generated URL with whomever needs it. You can manually enable/disable any tracker at any time, or set a Valid Date Range and the system will automatically enable/disable the public URL/tracker code.
Public Tracker API: Public Tracker data is available via industry standard JSON API, allowing you to integrate real-time fleet information into your own website.
Blackout Zones: allow you to hide sensitive depots, destinations, or other facilities from exposure to Public Trackers. Any device which last reported while within a Blackout Zone will not be displayed on the Public Tracker interface or API, thus protecting the location of valuable, sensitive or otherwise private locations. (though you can still track these devices in the Command Center or Analytical Mapping tool)
