At N2P Controls, however, we’ve brought the IOT to Wastewater plants (as well as Asphalt plants and similar industrial applications). For example, we can now have controllers that will link to your home Wi-Fi network and send data to your service provider about your plant. Why would this matter? Imagine your service provider or operators at your plant being informed immediately of a situation that requires action (such as a fault) and before it turns into a major issue, resolve it. All the while, you are kept abreast of the activity remotely, and automatically, by the system itself. Your service provider can check pump run times, blower run times, how much power is being used, your alarm faults and adjust your settings remotely.
Impressive right? Since it’s using your existing home Wi-Fi to do all this, there’s no additional monitoring cost to you.
