New HMI Wifi controller
VTS meets the expectations
In the second half of 2021, VTS is pleased to present a new management solution for the well-known units VOLCANO air heaters and WING air curtains equipped with energy-efficient EC motors. Dedicated controllers will now also be available in a new version equipped with a Wi-Fi module, which will allow for an easy insight into the operation of the devices and a convenient change of the operation settings remotely.
Cooperation with mobile application
The Wi-Fi HMI controller can be easily connected with a mobile application which will allow the management of VTS devices from any smartphone with Android or IOS system. An app called Tuya Smart which is fully compatible with the HMI Wi-Fi controllers is available for free on the AppStore and Play Store platforms. The application requires access to the local network in which the controller operates only during the first configuration, which means that after complete configuration we can manage the operation of the devices from anywhere where we have internet access. The application allows to remotely change all functions available in HMI WING and HMI VOLCANO controllers. With Tuya Smart, we can change, among others, the target temperature, fan speed, switch from heating to ventilation mode, or program the operation calendar.
What are the advantages of remote control?
We all know the situations when, after leaving the house, we start to wonder whether we were sure to switch the iron off. In this case the situation may be very similar, e.g. when we close our workshop for the time of our holidays and after leaving we start wondering whether we didn't leave the heating on full power instead of setting the device to the mode of gentle heating or simply turning it off. In such situations it is useful to have remote access to the equipment so that we can quickly check what is happening in our workshop, what is the temperature and how the heating system is working.
The situation can also be reversed, i.e. we are aware that the heating was turned off at our workplace over the weekend and in the meantime, temperatures become freezing outside and we do not want to start the working day in cold facility, waiting for the temperature to rise. That is why using a mobile application, we can force the heating devices to start while still being at home and drinking our morning coffee so that when we arrive at the workplace, the rooms are already comfortably warmed up.
It often happens that the person responsible for the maintenance of a facility, i.e. the management and maintenance of all the systems in it, such as ventilation, lighting, or just heating, has several such facilities under his care and is not always on hand when something is not working. In such situations, remote access to the devices may also prove useful, as most of the "faults" and malfunctions of the devices are the result of an accidental and unmeasured change of settings in the controller by a person who, for example, only wanted to slightly increase the temperature in the facility, mistakenly changed the controller's operating mode and is unable to return to the previous settings on his/her own. In such a situation, in times past, would require the arrival of the person responsible for maintaining the equipment in the facility, but when such person is equipped with a mobile application, he or she can remotely verify what the problem is and solve it without having to come to the site.
