Seresco USA Inc. has introduced WebSentry Mobile, described by sources as the HVAC industry’s first “smart phone” web app allowing facility managers and service contractors remote monitoring and programming functions for Seresco commercial indoor pool dehumidifiers.
The WebSentry Mobile web app, which is available free from www.serescodehumidifiers.com, connects seamlessly to the WebSentry system, the world’s only WebSentry Mobile enables fully-secure WebSentry monitor/control global access from all smart phone brands.
The Cat 5-Ethernet-connected WebSentry module comes standard with every Seresco commercial dehumidifier. WebSentry sends more than 100 operating parameters every minute from any dehumidifier’s onboard CommandCenter microprocessor controller to Seresco’s factory-based server center for daily remote viewing, tracking and adjusting by factory technicians. The server center also records and stores the data for performance trending. In the event of a dehumidifier performance or operational problem, the WebSentry system automatically sends an alarm to factory technicians for correction. If a parameter change is needed, a quasi virtual private network (VPN) connection can be established for online fine tuning by either authorized factory technicians, the facility manager or the local HVAC service contractor.
