EC: groov 3

Software - Mobile apps for controls, automation, instrumentation: With groov 3.0 you can quickly build a mobile app to securely monitor and control multiple automation systems and equipment from any smartphone or tablet, log events, and dispatch event-based email or text notifications. This is a Control Engineering 2016 Engineers’ Choice Honorable Mention.


groov, Opto 22With groov 3.0, you can simply and effectively build web-based and mobile apps that securely monitor and control automation, building, and other systems and equipment. You can configure simple to sophisticated event monitoring and logging conditions, and send email and text notifications to authorized personnel on event triggers. groov works with your automation systems and devices that support Modbus/TCP, OPC-UA, and Opto 22’s SNAP PAC protocol.

groov 3.0 brings technologically advanced service to the automation industry with:

  • Proactive event logging and notification. You can configure events based on conditions of a system tag or tags that log the date, time, and tag values of the event. Then, notify your plant personnel through the groov mobile or web browser interface, or through an email or text message that includes a hyperlink to the details of the event.
  • Mobile monitoring and control. Plant personnel can monitor or control systems from a smartphone, tablet, or any device supporting a web browser, providing realtime visibility into machine status, KPIs, and processes, from anywhere at any time.
  • Broad support for automation systems. Your groov app can combine a variety of systems and equipment from different manufacturers into one app, including Modbus/TCP devices like sensors, drives, and meters, Opto 22 SNAP PAC controllers, and OPC UA-compatible servers and equipment.
  • Simple app development. You build your mobile app in a web browser with no programming or coding. Because you build it yourself, it includes only the data and controls you need. You also have full control over which data individual users can see and what they can do with it.

groov 3.0, with its support for multiple automation systems plus event logging and notifications, brings you the insight you need into realtime system status plus the ability to see, be notified, and immediately respond to issues.
