Real-time energy management software with damage control and cost saving benefits.
The t-mac device is a remote management tool that can monitor and control heating, ventilation, air conditioning, fire and security systems. It also manages consumption of water, air, gas and electricity. A robust solution was needed to send time-critical SMS alerts and notifications.
t-mac engineers integrated Clickatell's HTTP SMS gateway API to alert end users. Once t-mac sends alert messages to the server, the server immediately responds via Clickatell's gateway to send SMS messages directly to the necessary personnel.
The functionality to send SMS alerts as soon as the t-mac device registers a fault has significant damage limitation and cost-saving benefits. In one instance, an IT manager was alerted to faulty air-conditioning units in his server rooms – an issue swiftly resolved by calling in service personnel to prevent the equipment from overheating.
