In-Situ’s Android smartphone technology for water monitoring is now available on all of the company’s water level instrument platforms.
The technology provides a streamlined, cost-effective way to access and manage water level and quality monitoring data from a mobile device, In-Situ said in a press release.
The idea behind the VuSitu mobile app is to provide accurate, repeatable and defensible data that is easy to access and analyze. Users can quickly find and recognize water level and quality monitoring sites, and instantly view, download, and share data from the office or the field.
“We’re excited to bring our industry-leading software experiences to all of our customers, allowing them to pair our rugged and reliable water level and quality instruments with a software experience that is second-to-none in our industry,” said Ben Kimbell, vice-president of research and design for In-Situ. “Whether you need to view live readings, set up logs via our easy, managed workflows, or configure your devices in any way, you can now use VuSitu and our Bluetooth Wireless TROLL Com to do so.”
Offered in several languages, the app provides auto-configuration, simplified calibration, directed data analysis and automated report creation for all applications that In-Situ instruments serve. Site photos and GPS co-ordinates keep all projects in one organized, central location, and instrument firmware and software updates can be done directly through the app. A managed workflow for groundwater and low-flow sampling events is also built into the app, and can be paired with the 7-Inch Rugged Android Tablet for rapid input of sample and other barcoded information via the built-in barcode scanner.
The step-by-step in-app instructions are intended to cut down time spent on instrument and software training.
Both the VuSitu and iSitu mobile apps are free to download.
