Kistler Sensors Offers Silo Remote Monitoring/Control from Smartphones

April 3, 2012

Kistler Sensors Inc. has expanded its vision of “data anywhere, anytime” for operators, owners, and managers of silo and tank facilities by releasing its Android-based remote control and monitoring application, Kistler Connexion. The application communicates with the electronics in the Kistler SOLO weight and level measurement solution for bulk material storage and inventory control, and displays readings on Android-based smartphones. 

“Our customers have important priorities other than worrying about complicated inventory scenarios,” said Kennan Yilmaz, president of Kistler Sensors. “Kistler Connexion turns the customer’s phone into an intelligent silo remote control. With it, customers can remotely monitor, control, and manage their inventories in real time from anywhere they can access the Internet, whether via Wi-Fi or cellular network.”

Once Kistler Connexion is downloaded to the phone, the customer inputs the IP address of the silo (SOLO electronics) and configures the app via a simple interface. From then on, the customer can keep tabs on silo contents and alarm situations. Kistler Connexion can be downloaded from Google Play for free by using the keyword Kistler.

“The future versions of Kistler Connexion will have exciting features to further simplify life for our customers. I would like to invite customers to submit feature requests via our website,” added Yilmaz.
