Alarm solutions for Glasshouse horticulture

Monitor climate computers, substrate systems and irrigation systems

Adésys has always had strong ties with the horticultural sector. The company was in fact founded in 1983 to meet the demand for control and protection solutions in that sector.

The scale of nurseries and market gardens has increased substantially and so too, therefore, has the volume of technology that needs monitoring. Monitoring climate computers, substrate systems and irrigation systems safeguards sustainable and safe operational management. Knowing that you'll be alerted in the event of any problem on site gives you peace of mind. It will prevent damage due to process failure.

... Octalarm-T?

This dialler is maybe more than 15 years old and no longer guarantees a reliable alarm. Electronics are aging, the risk of failure increases and it is impossible to predict when the detector will fail. Waiting for this to happen will lead to a situation in which you will be temporarily without alarm and risk financial damage. That is of course not an option!

’It still works’ shouldn't be a reason to have your assets, with a value of many thousands or even millions, protected by equipment that may be 15 years old or even older.

What are the risks of old diallers?

... Octalarm-IP

As of January 2022, the 3G network in the Netherlands will NOT be supported by Dutch telecom providers. In the UK, Vodafone and EE have both announced that they will close their 3G network next year (2022) and BT Group has announced that 3G services will be phased off for all EE, BT Mobile and Plusnet customers by 2023. Our diallers have an automatic fallback to 2G. However, because all installations with a 3G GSM module fall back to the 2G network at the same time, the communication speed/coverage will decrease drastically. This may cause communication problems for installations with a 2G and 3G module.

In addition, the 2G network in the Netherlands will be discontinued in April 2025 as well. No official phasing out data has yet been released by UK providers such as BT, Vodafone, EE (BT), O2 and Three. According to news sources, a phase-off period from June 2023 to 2025 is mentioned. We recommend you to contact your provider for clarity in your 2G and 3G delivery guarantee. After the networks expire,

  1. alerts with the Octalarm-IP will then only be possible via analogue connection (PSTN) and fixed internet. The GSM versions of these diallers no longer work.
  2. All Octalarm-T GSM versions will no longer work.

In order not to jeopardise the safety of your technical processes, these diallers must therefore be replaced (possibly prematurely) by Q1 of 2025 at the latest.

In order to avoid delivery problems due to a run on 4G modules during this period, we advise you to switch to solutions with a 4G LTE-Cat M1 module (4G for M2M) as soon as possible. We will be happy to advise you on choosing the right product.

Climate computer alarm handling with ARA-pro

For the Hoogendoorn iSii andPriva Office, it a network interface can be established with the ARA-pro central alarm register. This forwards the alarms from the climate computers to smartphones as spoken messages. As the type of alarm is immediately clear, the technician can quickly take appropriate action.

The software takes the urgency of the alarm and the standby team's duty roster into account. This means that the right person is always alerted and that low priority alerts occurring during the night are deferred to the next day. In short: rest for the team!
