All products that are integrated with the GSM/GPRS Communications module are compatible with a number of Messaging options.
Most simply a message from the device may be directed to one or two mobile telephones using SMS text messaging service. This is the least reliable option as it uses the open public text service and there is no confirmation of message delivered. Time stamping can only be taken at the time the message was delivered.
The most flexible and comprehensive system that has been proven as an effective working solution that offers future expansion using many manufactures devices is the Nortech I-Host alarm data management platform. I-Host offers a number of flexible options to running hosted or web-browser software, or as a fully supported client based program and offers full integration with a number of SCADA networks.
All of the Bowden Bros devices can be compatible with this software, and the delivery and support of the I-Host from Nortech management Systems is recommended by Bowden Bros. For further information visit www.ihostexplained.co.uk
Bowden Bros offer their own Alarm Management software, Powerwatch EComs for a simple local solution to data gathering and management of a number of devices.
