A Web Based Monitoring System using GSM/GPRS technology for the publishing of real
time management information of Cities, Towns, Districts and Utilities.
The MyCity GSM based Remote Telemetry Unit communicates across the mobile phone network
directly with the MyCity Web enabled reporting software. This allows users to remotely monitor
their machinery, processes, plant and recourses wherever they are, wherever their equipment is.
The MyCity Outstation
The MyCity GSM RTU was created as a universal “wireless device” that works via GSM mobile phone
networks. It was created for mainstream Municipal and Industrial applications, encompassing areas
such as Power, Water and Stormwater, Sewage and Effluent, Emergency Services and Traffic and
Industrial Application. The possibilities are almost endless. The MyCity RTU allows operators to
become more cost effective in monitoring their daily business activity and is simple and easy to
The MyCity telemetry outstations can be easily integrated into operator's equipment and report
online system failures and faults, as well as collect data, switch components, detect change in
performance and even allow you to activate and de-activate processes.
MyCity Web Enabled Reporting Software
The MyCity RTU will report on changes in state and threshold movements and immediately update
the MyCity Web Enabled online server.
Data Logging and Reporting
Any or all of the points being monitored is data logged and can be viewed online. Data can also be
downloaded in CSV format. The data can be easily manipulated in a spreadsheet to suit the user’s
requirements. It is possible to monitor analogue and digital signals and display all values including
total flows etc...
Graphing and Trending
Stored data may be viewed in a graphic format online without downloading it to a computer first
and without having to open a dedicated spreadsheet program. There is also the option to save the
graph as a picture file.
SMS Messages and Control
Mobile phones can also receive pre-canned SMS text messages, such as alarms and status changes
as well as perform control functions of the remote plant.
