Most of natural water resources are located in rural areas where there is no electricity and very weak or zero communication infrastructure. For this, required monitoring can not be done or security can not be ensured by user. Moreover, environmental conditions are rough too.
SenseAway generates its own energy by energy scavanging, mainly by solar panels. Without any sunshine system can operate up to 60 days according to configuration and sensors installed thanks to its own batteries.
SenseAway transmits and receives small data packages in order to use communication infrastructures without needing broadband. So very weak GPRS signals can be reached with specialized high gain antennas.
SenseAway has unique on-site capabilities in order to ensure energy and communication efficiency. Beside controlling sensors system is capable of creating scenarios according to user needs. Control card differs from a brain at a point that it is replaceable and easy to maintain. .
Similar to monitoring, any kind of compatible sensor can be integrated to SenseAway. By design, system has proximity sensors and reed sensors. In addition, cameras can be integrated on system and can be triggered by sensors to record for a period of time.
V-Smart is a logic developed by Altyol for camera integration. Any kind of sensor according to the facility can actuate a high definition camera and a siren. Camera can record for a pre-determined time period and siren creates a detterency for intruder.
Both in hardware and software level SenseAway has its authorization mechanism. At the facility to log authorized access and maintenance there is an I-button reader. When an authorized person enters a facility this person has to have an registered I-button. Thanks to that logic any kind of activity can be logged on system and reported. On the other hand, any other authorization hardware like fingerprint sensor or pass-pad can be integrated to SenseAway.
Many measurement sensors and actuators required by users can be adapted to SenseAway. Some of the sensors and actuators which can be adapted to the SenseAway are listed below;
Flow Meters, Temperature, Humidity Sensors
Water Temperature Sensors, Ph Sensors
Water Level Sensor, Pressure Sensors
Connectivity Sensors, Actuator Valves
