10 years of uSee Remote Monitoring

Like so many things, the need for a reliable remote monitoring system was brought about by necessity. Anyone with a property could tell you that there is never a dull moment in the bush, and no two days are the same. There are days when everything runs smoothly, and there are weeks filled with non-stop action. This is when some of the basic jobs can become a little inconvenient. For William and Peter Harrington, 2008 was a whole year filled with non-stop action, especially after the success of The Pipe Reader which was in high demand at the time.

To save time and allow himself to be able to focus on the manufacturing and marketing of The Pipe Reader, William began to look into remote water monitoring. It was something he’d always had a vision for, as he believed that it could save a significant amount of time and offer people more peace of mind.

“The Pipe Reader was a huge hit which kept us so busy that we needed something to help us out in terms of checking waters etc. We looked around and just weren’t satisfied by what was already on the market, so I decided to have a go at making my version of it,” William stated.

The uSee remote monitoring system started out as a rectangular plastic box. Inside was a simple Telstra ZTE flip phone which was wired to take photos every couple of hours. It would then send those photos via Next G network to the online dashboard William had created on his new uSee website.

A decade later, Harrington Systems Electronics has thousands of uSee cameras operating daily around the country as well as several in New Zealand, Vietnam and South Africa. The camera design has come a very long way over the past ten years. We have said goodbye to the ordinary rectangular box and embraced a more modern and aesthetic housing. Rolling with the times, we have long since gotten rid of the mobile flip phone and replaced it with a high-quality camera lens. Website design and usability is constantly improving and to accommodate the importance of smart phones nowadays, we now have a uSee app.

Even to this day there is nothing quite like the uSee system on the market. It is a product which we ourselves rely on every day to run the property. It’s great to look back on how far it has come and dream of how far it might go!

Howdy! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make
your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing
from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be
able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.

Appreciate it!

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a
40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time
a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.

Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?

Appreciate it!

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very
techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting
up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any
points or suggestions? With thanks
