Various scenarios of using the system of remote monitoring for conducting remote surveillance of premises

In order to reduce consumer's interference in the work of house engineering systems to a minimum, life-support systems of modern buildings require automation. But in practice, we have yet another aspect of this phenomenon: these support systems should be serviced by specialists in order to prevent the occurrence of accidents. Thus, there is a need to monitor the parameters of various systems and to respond to potential accidents. Let us consider a modern house and try to understand how the existing systems perform and methods of tracking their performance on the example of the introduction of remote monitoring system based on the controller "Impulse 112".

In order to reduce consumer's interference in the work of house engineering systems to a minimum, life-support systems of modern buildings require automation. But in practice, we have yet another aspect of this phenomenon: these support systems should be serviced by specialists in order to prevent the occurrence of accidents. Thus, there is a need to monitor the parameters of various systems and to respond to potential accidents. Let us consider a modern house and try to understand how the existing systems perform and methods of tracking their performance on the example of the introduction of remote monitoring system based on the controller "Impulse 112".

Let's start with the basic life support system at home - the energy supply. In a modern house, all systems depend on the supply of electricity and on its quality. Thus, monitoring the availability and performance of electric power allows the primary control of all the systems in the house. If you have lost the power supply then no system is performing. To provide surveillance of electricity we use the monitoring controller "Impulse 112" and connect it to the voltage sensor SVG2-OW-230-3 that measures the voltage on three phases, as well as the current sensors SCG2-OW-050-1 (up to 50 Amps, or higher ratings) for each phase - to control the input current. These sensors are placed on the input of power into the house and provide information on the availability and quality of electricity consumed and - alongside - the load on each phase. In the event of deviation from the normal ratings, the controller "Impulse 112" sends a message about an emergency or a pre-emergency status, which enables the owner or the servicer to respond quickly to the event. That is, if the power has disappeared as a whole, none of the systems are working or are switched over to the emergency power supply, knowing the span of time from the time of power failure allows us to estimate when the emergency power supply capacity will deplete and irreversible adverse processes will begin in the house or adjoing premises (shutdown of the boiler will defrost the heating system, shutdown of refrigerators will lead to the spoilage of products, disabling of lawn watering will result in a loss of grass cover, etc.). The owner receiving such a message at a distance from the house, has the ability to respond quickly by either returning back to the house, sending a service organization etc.. Furthermore, the use of these sensors will monitor not only the presence or absence of voltage, but the rating of voltage, i.e. when the voltage on any of the phases sets to a certain level (e.g., 160V) and certain equipment switches off, which can lead to undesirable situations. Thus the online surveillance of the availability and quality of electrical voltage and current at the input of the house allows you to avoid unnecessary costs of repair or replacement of equipment and / or systems as a whole.

[sensors_div]Another very important life support system is the heating system. Let's consider what should be monitored for keeping this system in order. The main driving force of the heating system is a boiler (gas, solid fuel, electrical or on alternative energy). Virtually all modern boilers use the power. Thus, by using voltage sensors SVG2-OW-230-3, and current sensors SCG2-OW ... (Specific denomination) can say with certainty whether the boiler and / or the circulating pump are working or not. Certain boilers have the ability to report an emergency condition, whose control circuitry makes a drawdown on the "dry contact" when an alarm occurs in the boiler. Thus by connecting the boiler to the signal output terminals of the controller "Impulse 112" you can instantly get the information on the failure of the boiler. One of the methods to control the heating system is to monitor the temperature in rooms. For that purpose the temperature sensors STG2-OW-85 can be deployed. The sensor is placed in a room in which you intend to control the temperature, and if the temperature changes in either direction from the norm, the owner is notified of the situation and is able to react to it. The sensors STG2-OW-85 are also relative humidity sensors. You can connect up to 20 of these sensors to a controller "Impulse 112".

Another important parameter is the pressure of the heating fluid in the system. To establish control of this parameter pressure sensors are connected to the ports on the controller "Impulse 112". As the pressure decreases, the heating system automatically switches off the boiler and the temperature in the house will fall. If the system is built on circulating pumps, the long-term operation in the absence of pressure in the system will lead to a damage in the pump and the need for a further change. Thus, after receiving a message from all of these sensors you can quickly determine the degree of threat and the methods of solving problems, even before arriving at the site. Controller "Impulse 112" provides the ability to connect smoke detectors and gas analyzers that can be placed in the boiler room and signal a fire hazard. All of the above techniques, allow the owner to always keep the situation with the heating system in the premises under control and be able to respond to emergencies in the shortest possible time.

The water supply system is yet one of the most important in the question of life support. Let us take a glance at the main problems that can occur with this system, and how you can use the remote monitoring system based on the controller "Impulse 112" to prevent and to respond quickly to specific problems in the system. The main problem that can occur in the water system is a pump failure. By setting the voltage sensors SVG2-OW-230-3, and current sensors SCG2-OW-.. you can monitor the performance of the pump by the power it consumes. These sensors allow the following conclusions: the pump is not working because there is no voltage or the voltage is lowered, or - the current is too high at the pump, indicating that the pump is jammed or the water flow is blocked off. Having this information will significantly speed up the elimination of breakdowns.

The next potential problem in the water system - the lack of pressure in the system. This problem can lead to burnt out pumps, and to track down the problem, a pressure sensor is deployed in the sytem and connected to the ports on the controller "Impulse 112". When the pressure in the system falls down the owner receives a message about the accident and is be able to promptly respond to the problem.

Another danger that can happen to the water system is the breakage of pipes or fittings with a subsequent uncontrolled supply of water in to the premises (as a rule - to the bathroom). To get to know about such a problem the flooding sensors installed in the premises, connected to the controller "Impulse 112", and, in the case of such a situation, a signal is drawn on a "dry contact" and the controller sends an instant notification.
