Sealite’s cost effective GSM cell phone Monitoring & Control System provides an array of options for your lantern including remote control over flash code and intensity settings, and other features for GSM-enabled lanterns.
Data is able to be communicated from the lantern including lantern statistics, battery condition and GPS positioning via your cell-phone, email address or Sealite’s secure web portal.
Maintenance personnel are able to send an SMS message to the designated Sealite GSM lantern cell-phone number and then receive an automatic SMS reply detailing the various pre-set operational conditions. In addition, various alarm conditions can also be activated such as tracking a drifting buoy via GPS that has moved outside a designated area (if mooring is broken etc.) or alerting to a potential power disruption.
Sealite’s innovative GSM Monitoring & Control System may also be setup to regularly report lantern conditions to a secure user-login portal area of the Sealite website. This provides details of the GSM lantern’s operational status in an easy-to-read PC interface, such as historical graphed data, GPS positioning viewed via internet mapping systems and day-to-day operational information about each individual lantern over the period of its service life. Users can also have alarms and reports sent to designated email addresses.
Each lantern is fitted with its own SIM card which provides a designated cell-phone contact number for each individual lantern. Any network operator can be used providing they have GSM coverage.
