What is remote monitoring?
Simply put, remote monitoring is the process of using a combination of hardware and software to track key metrics and the overall performance of remote assets. The hardware includes customizable IoT-enabled sensors that track relevant data like Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) that collect and sort the information.
Remote site monitoring tools can process the input from this collection of tools to produce an accessible dashboard of trends, updates, and alerts. Popular monitoring targets include energy consumption, equipment functionality, network status, and operational expenses.
