Project Description

Alternative Design contracted Robust Device to develop a web application for remote monitoring and control of their Wifi-enabled MACS Tower controller – which were also designed by Robust Device.  The web app enables Alternative Design’s clients to manage and see real-time data from all of their connected units.

The server back-end pulls data from all connected MACS Towers and stores it to a database.  The application sends text message (SMS) alerts to maintenance staff, when alarm conditions are detected, such as over-temperature or power failure. The web app’s front-end shows users a facility-level overview of all connected units and their critical parameters.  Individual units can be selected to access a virtual terminal which imitates the look and feel of the units’ physical touchscreen.

Robust Device continues to partner with Alternative Design to support and further develop the remote monitoring web application.
