The AR-8 Relay Controller App is the ideal solution for hundreds of
applications where control of external devices is needed. Connect the
AR-8 Relay Interface to your Tablet or Phone's USB port and you have instant
control of any electrical device that can be connected to a relay. Control
lighting, motors, appliances, HVAC equipment, lock or gate solenoids,
indicator panels, heaters, camera tilt and pan, robotics and thousands of
other electrical devices. Great for field testing prototype products or
testing equipment for reliability.
This App allows you to instantly energize or de-energize a relay from your
tablet or phone's touch screen. The app's start-up screen allows
you to control all 8 of the AR-8 relays. Touch the relay button for the desired
relay and the relay will energize (button will turn red). Touch the button
again and the relay will de-energize (button will turn green). Label the
relay buttons as needed from within the App or just create a text file using
Notepad on your desktop PC and then copy to your tablet.
Use EECI's CO-USB cable (available with Standard USB or Micro USB connector)
for connecting the AR-8 to your tablet or phone. Use the CC-USBB1 to connect
the AR-8MF (may require CO-OTG adapter).
The AR-8 Relay Controller App has been developed to run on Android
operating systems Android 3.2 through Android 4.4 which includes Honeycomb,
Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat. Root permission or special driver
not needed for most Android phones and tablets that use the Android
operating system 3.2 or higher (Honeycomb and up), just enable USB Host
Mode. The USB Host Diagnostics app by Chainfire may be used to troubleshoot
USB issues with your phone or tablet and may allow you to turn on the USB
Host Mode function if you are unable to locate the setting on your phone.
Free telephone support is provided for this app by contacting EECI Support

Need less relays? Just connect the AR-2 for control of 2 relays (use the
AR-2 Relay Control App). The AR-16 Relay Controller App may be used to
control up to 128 relays.

Event Notification for your Smartphone
This software allows Text Message Alerts or Email Alerts to be sent to Smartphones, computers,
tablets and other devices for the purpose of event notifications. Events that you may wish to send to your Smartphone include security system alarm alerts (such as alarm in progress, an open door, a tripped motion detector, broken window or smoke alarm). Other uses include alerts when room temperature or freezer temperature fall below a preset level. Any device with a contact closure or a voltage output may be connected to inputs on the AR-8MF, AR-12MF, STA-16 and other EECI products to trigger a text message alert to your
Smartphone or computer. Other uses include alerts sent when a driveway sensor is tripped, a doorbell is sounded, a swimming pool activity alarm goes off, a security camera detects activity or any one of thousands of events that may need to be monitored. Are you a business owner and need to be alerted if a freezer has failed to keep food frozen?
...or maybe you need to know the time that your store door was unlocked.
Managers need to be keep aware of the temperature of conference or banquet rooms. Maintenance personnel need to know the operating performance of HVAC equipment.
