Domotz, provider of network monitoring and remote tech support systems and D-Tools, data-driven system integration software specialist, have upped the ante in the remote monitoring and installer software markets with a new deal between the two platforms to facilitate the ongoing monitoring and maintenance of systems designed in D-Tools SI. The initiative is intended to streamline the process of setting up a new network for remote management with the Domotz PRO platform.
“Acknowledging that the installation phase of a project is typically the beginning of a long-term customer relationship,” says Randy Stearns, CEO of D-Tools, “The integration with Domotz enables D-Tools users to plan for ongoing service and monitoring from the outset of every client engagement.”
“Even though setting up Domotz PRO is already easy, our partnership with D-Tools will make this process much quicker and even more seamless,” adds Domenico Crapanzano CEO and founder of Domotz. “By working with D-Tools we’re able to reduce the new network set-up time down to merely minutes, which will save our integrators a lot of time and equip them for wide scale roll-out of the technology.”
Basically, an installer writing specifications for a project with D-Tools will be able to upload all device information to Domotz PRO without having to re-input device names and location information.
On set-up of Domotz PRO with D-Tools device information, all recognised devices on the network will automatically be matched with their corresponding names and rooms. The software will then guide the user through matching any unidentified devices with their correct name and room. Any changes made in the D-Tools software to device names and rooms at a later stage will also be automatically reflected in Domotz PRO.
The new D-Tools feature will be available in Domotz PRO in Q1 2017 and the new functionality can be seen on Stand 9B171 at ISE.
ISE already looks set to be a big year for remote monitoring opportunities, so expect quite a bit more news for this particular sector.
