Generator Bluetooth Monitoring
« on: December 14, 2017, 09:24:01 AM »
I have a Honda 3Kva Handy, I would like to receive notification on my mobile if it has stopped etc. lots of options for big businesses generators, can not find a small generator option. Does anybody know of something that will facilitate this?

Bluetooth only has a very limited range (10metres) so I am assuming you actually want 3G monitoring?

Ryobi and Briggs and Stratton have bluetooth but I have not seen Honda units with the technology

This might do it.

Make sure you get one with 3G compatible with the Australian frequencies. Don't get a 2G one, 2G is being switched off.
Hi BooBook, it's probably the closest I've seen for what I'm after. Was really hoping for a either a WiFi (preferred) or Bluetooth connection. A lot of the places I go don't have mobile service!

I'm probably just being over pedantic

Thanks for the response, getting real quite around here!

Does the notification have to be on the mobile? What about a buzzer?

What sort of range are you looking for? Taxtrax is right about bouetooths range.

Mate if I could get around 100 yards that would be great

Alas, that probably rules out both wifi and Bluetooth as options.

There are devices like this...

which would perform a similar sort of alert but you would need to be withing 3g range and pay Telstra some extraordinary amount to keep it active!
