Know how to use Google on your phone? It’s just as easy to use our plug-and-play DM-7500! Stay in daily contact with all your energy devices, or automate their functions and relax – it’s your choice. Either way, start saving on energy now.
All DM-7500 systems begin with a gateway and an Internet connection. First, connect the gateway to the local router. Next, sit back as the gateway establishes a secure line of communication with the Direct M servers. Then, register your devices online and install them. As new devices are added to your system, they begin to “talk” to the already-established gateway, which in turn talks to the servers, creating the state-of-the-art Internet connectivity.
No Internet? No Problem!
Don’t have an existing network connection where you need it most? The DM-7500 cellular gateway enables your DM-7500 wireless sensors to communicate with the Direct M online wireless sensor monitoring controls and notification system via a cellular network.
This is the perfect solution for remote locations or where reliance on an existing Internet connection is not an option. The new cellular gateway is an advanced, all-wireless M2M gateway that enables fast time-to-market solutions for a wide range of M2M applications. Our DM-7500 cellular gateway is based on the latest dual-band CDMA wireless engine, and is integrated with Direct Management’s wireless access network (WAN) for use with all Direct M wireless devices.
Additional features include:
- Support for up to 100 DM-7500 wireless devices
- True plug-and-play for hassle-free Internet configuration
- No PC required for operation
- Low-cost cellular service packages
- Remote software upgrade capabilities
- Local status LEDs with transmission and online status indicators
- 50,000 sensor message memory
- Watchdog function and online heartbeat control
- AC power supply
- Dual band CDMA (800/1900 MHz)
How do you exercise control? You control and monitor your devices from a simple online interface that sends your commands to the servers, back through the gateway, and onto the devices. Control may be simple – turn on, turn off – or it may involve intricate schedules and sensor interactions that can orchestrate millions of devices. Through the many monitoring functions that allow alerts, analysis and reporting of real-time conditions and data, you gain the ability to keep a virtual finger on your property’s energy pulse.
Wireless Sensor Technology:
Powered by AA batteries – and featuring a new flanged housing for easy mounting to various surfaces – our wireless temperature sensors employ a thermistor to measure temperature. This type of sensor is perfect for temperature-critical applications such as facility and room temperature monitoring. The user customization feature allows you to set the frequency of readings, and enables you to set thresholds for system notifications.
The wireless high-temperature sensor packs an RTD to accurately measure temperatures in the range of -58°F to 700°F, making it the perfect choice for high-temperature-critical applications such as DHW, pre-post mix, and chimney temp. With user customization, you can easily set the frequency of sensor readings and create notifications from the system when certain criteria are met or exceeded.
One of our DM-7500’s most powerful features is its endless ability for custom alerts. Once specified conditions are met and a user-defined delay interval elapses, the server generates unlimited massages to users assigned to the account. Alerts can be set up to monitor and send alerts to an email account or to a mobile device as a text message. It doesn’t matter where in the world or in what time zone you may be: deploying a Direct M Controls solution keeps you connected from anywhere, 24/7, so you are immediately informed of issues as they occur.
Below are some of the most commonly used alerts:
- Apartment temp too high/too low
- Hot water temp too high/too low
- Boiler not turning on when system calls for heat
- Battery level low
- Water detected
- Carbon monoxide detected
- Communication with sensor lost
- System is offline
- and many more
Graphs and Analysis:
Graphs are among the most powerful tools for analyzing your building’s energy usage compared to outdoor temperatures. Comprehensive graphs help you determine the readings of one sensor versus those of other sensors. These graphs are also useful when comparing one apartment to another, providing the building engineer with a clear window into the balance of your heating system. You get flexibility at your fingertips, with the ability to choose which sensors are to be included in a single chart by simply selecting the desired sensors and clicking the chart icon. It’s that easy.
