Farmers constitute the pillars of progress in a developing country. Apsis Solutions is in constant quest to innovate technologies to promote agro-industrial development in the country. Our Remote Irrigation Controller (APS-RIC-V2) is an outcome of such an endeavor and state-of-art equipment specially designed and developed for rural/semi-urban India. This equipment is capable of operating a Pump Set or any other electrical equipment remotely using a standard mobile handset over the GSM Network.
Let's look at the problems faced by Our Farmers in the Rural Zones:
Farmlands and fields situated miles away from their homes. Extensive travel required, sometimes several times in a day to start and stop the Irrigation Water Pumps.
Rough and Tough terrain and bad roads in country sides makes the travel even more tedious.
Long walk-ways in remote agricultural lands also face associated threats from wild animals, bugs, bees, spiders, snakes, scorpions and other potential hazards from lightening or electrical shocks.
Hostile weather can play havoc endangering the life of the farmers-Reaching the pump can sometimes turn out to be a nightmare.
Availability of non-stop power is scarce in many of the villages around India, resulting in several trips a day to operate the pumps.
Protecting their equipment from theft and power fluctuations could also be a serious concern for many.
How did APSIS address this Issue in APS-RIC-V2?
APS-RIC-V2 could be installed on the existing Pump Sets at a nominal cost.
The system works wherever there is coverage of local Mobile Network (GSM).
Operating our Remote Controller does not require any special skills. It is as simple as sending an SMS or a missed call (from mobile or landline) to start or stop your pumps.
The user can send an SMS from any part of the world to operate this equipment. The security feature in the software will make sure that it works only with pre-assigned numbers or with a password.
The system has various add-on features. It can notify you by a return SMS, when the pump starts or trips. It can even alert you if someone breaks into your pump room to steal the equipment.
You can also incorporate a feature to turn ON a flood light or initiate a Siren incase of a Theft attempt.
