The newest build of viewLinc—version 4.1— features a mobile-optimized interface for remote monitoring, reporting and alarm management. Along with the location-based reporting and data logging capability, mobile optimization allows users to act on alarms immediately via smart phones. viewLinc also provides time-zone based reporting, making the reporting functions correlate with the localized time of data collection and alarming.
