Description

Luda.SmartPlug is a smart remote power switch you can control from your mobile phone. It can be used anywhere you have GSM coverage. Switch your equipment on and off from anywhere in the world and check both the temperature and power consumption. You can also receive alarms in case of a power failure or if the temperature goes outside a desired range.

Power units, pumps, fans, lighting, etc. – there is a variety of equipment on a farm that you would like to keep an eye on even when you are not there. Using the My.Luda.Farm app, you can remotely control your equipment and also keep track of the current temperature, the current power consumption of the connected equipment (W) and the total consumption (kWh). A range of additional options is available, including timers, thermostats and alarms.

Gathered in the same app as your other Smart Farming products, My.Luda.Farm provides a collective and instant overview of key areas on the farm right on your mobile phone.

How It Works:

1. Connect the Luda.SmartPlug between any electric device and the power outlet (220 V).

2. Luda.SmartPlug keeps track of the status, temperature and power consumption and sends the current values to My.Luda.Farm over the GSM network. (A SIM card that automatically selects the strongest operator signal is included.)

3. Using your mobile phone, you can remote control the power from the outlet, whilst you can also monitor the temperature at the site and the power consumption of the connected equipment.

There is no monthly fee for remotely controlling the electric power or checking the temperature/power consumption. For enhanced functionality, Control+ and Alarm+ are also available as described below. A 30-day trial is included for all the functions.

CONTROL+ option

Thermostat
Turns connected devices on or off based on your temperature settings. For example: Turn on the heating in the warehouse or turn the watering bowl warmer on when the temperature in the barn gets too cold.

Timer
Turns connected devices on or off based on your timer settings. Convenient to control power supply to the diesel tank, the engine pre-heater or the radiator in the cottage.

SmartTrigger
Create new triggers by combining cameras and sensors connected to My.Luda.Farm. For example: Turn lights in the home on when FarmCam IP detects movement in the farm yard.

Fee:
€ 24/year (€ 2/month in case of an annual subscription) or € 4/month.
Includes a 30-day trial.

ALARM+ option

Power Guard
Sends an alarm to your mobile phone when a power failure occurs at the connected equipment. Convenient when you want to make sure that the fans are supplied with power, that the pump is running or if your electrical fences lose power.

Power Consumption Guard
Alerts you when the voltage changes dramatically. For example: If connected equipment breaks or if the power connector is disconnected.  Useful for pumps, ventilation, lighting, management computers, heaters etc.

Temperature Guard
Alerts you when temperature increases above or drops below set levels. Useful tool for potato and grain storage as well as pump houses where temperature must not drop below freezing.

Fee:
