GSM Relay controls and switches are widely used in places that need remote monitoring and control of devices. While there are many technologies, SMS based control is one major method. It involves using short SMS based commands to receive current status of the devices and set status of the devices. Sometimes phone calls can be made to the device activating a pre-defined set of configuration.
Though SMS based control is quiet easy method, preparing commands manually and sending them to devices will be tiresome. If it involves multiple devices, then tracking these devices will be even difficult. Being leading technological problem solvers, Embien has designed and developed a Android based application called the DAQ Suite to ease management of such devices. With this Android controlled switch App, the device management has become easier.
DAQ Suite is a user friendly Android application for managing various applications such as GSM relay controllers/Switches, USB relay switches etc based on platform such as Arduino, Raspberry PI, eStorm-L1 etc. The application is a graphical collection of complex preset SMS command that are used to the control the devices by providing a powerful and rich user expereience. is well suited for the applications that involve remote control of the devices in many sectors such as industrial, consumer, automotives, etc.
DAQ Suite supports the following functionalities,
Few screen shots of the DAQ Suite when being used for SMS remote control is given below
DAQ Suite Android controlled switch application is designed to address the entire chain of GSM based relay control. It is a one touch and error free remote control solution for the user, where they feel free from a major task of typing/editing the SMS commands and avoid false commands sent to the device which may save time as well as cost per false SMS. Once the application is opened the user will come across the following screens,
In this screen, all the information about the device that are registered, online etc are consolidated. In addition to the device information, a log of the number of SMS commands being sent and received are also displayed.
The device selection screen supports selecting the device type and model that has been purchased and positioned for monitoring or control applications. The screen includes two drop down list box such as follows
At present, the DAQ Suite Android application includes two device type and two device models where the same will be updated with multiple options in the later revisions as needed by the customer.
