The Global Remote is a modem which sends alarms, warnings
and system status reports to mobile phones via text messages (SMS). It can also log data from Victron Battery Monitors, Multi’s, Quattro’s and Inverters to a website through a GPRS connection. The usage of this website is free of charge.
The global remote can be programmed to send a text messages if the battery voltage is to low or to high, or if the state of charge is low! A prepaid SIM-card (for example) in combination with the Global Remote is all you need to remotely monitor your system.
Advanced usage: Monitoring historic data
