Integrating the app was made possible by using the remote alarm notification function on VerticalMan’s WiFi network and by creating an ASWI web interface application (Aldea SCADA Web Interface) to connect to two Emerson SCADA systems. Aldea has design engineered several SCADA applications using Movicon in the Building Automation sector. These include security system supervision that, in some cases, have been integrated with VerticalMan as a Man Down solution to offer customers a unique alarm management console.
