Ayantra – a leading developer of remote asset management products – has created a solution for managing Residential Generators. Featuring Ayantra’s unique “TruBatt™” architecture, the myGENcare solution reports key information about each generator – including its “true” battery level without input from the battery charger.
Residential generators must be carefully monitored to ensure that they will perform when needed. In addition, an effective generator management solution should be easy to install, easy to use, and attractively priced. An effective monitoring solution should report the following:
Availability of Site Power
Availability of Utility Power
Generator Status – Running or Not Running
Generator Fault Status
myGENcare is a web-basedwireless monitoring system for managing residential generators. myGENcare can support any make or model of generator. With the average cost of a truck roll @ $75 or more, remote generator monitoring starts to pay for itself right away.
- AVAILABILITY OF UTILITY POWER
- AVAILABILITY OF SITE POWER
- GENERATOR STATUS (RUNNING OR NOT RUNNING)
- GENERATOR FAULT STATUS
- BATTERY LEVEL
The total solution consists of
- A myGENcare monitoring unit installed on the generator myGENcare – provided wireless messaging services
- myGENcare – provided wireless messaging services
- A myGENcare – provided website to deliver information about each monitored generator
CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING ANY MAKE OR MODEL OF GENERATOR, INCLUDING GENERAC, KOHLER, GE, BRIGGS & STRATTON, AND OTHERS.
REAL-TIME FAULT REPORTS AND ALERT NOTIFICATIONS
The myGENcare monitoring unit includes a digital input to report Common Alarm Faults. Each Fault event can trigger real-time Alert Notifications sent as text messages and/or as email messages directed to specific recipients.
BATTERY REPORTS / BATTERY ALARMS
Utilizing Ayantra’s unique “Tru-Batt™” technology, myGENcare reports the generator’s true Battery Level (meaning the Battery Level is measured without assistance from the Battery Charger). myGENcare can also send real-time Alert Notifications If any battery or alternator problems occur.
VERIFY WEEKLY SELF-TESTS
The myGENcare website automatically reports if a generator has failed to run for at least ten minutes within the last week, and can even send Alert Notifications for “Failure to Test.”
myGENcare can send “Service Due” reminders as the generator approaches its service interval. Service intervals are user-configurable by Date and/or by Engine Run-Hours. The “Service Due” reminders can be sent as text and/or as email messages to specific recipients.
ENGINE ON/OFF UPDATES
The myGENcare monitoring unit automatically reports each time the generator is turned ON and OFF. Each “Engine ON” event can trigger an Alert Notification sent as a text and/or email message, if desired.
Authorized users can collect up-to-the minute updates from any machine, at any time.
Authorized users can utilize their smartphones to manage their generators, at any time and from any place with cellular service. Smartphone apps are currently available for iPhone and Android smartphones.
