Master NodeMaster Node
MasterNode collects the data from multiple SmartNodes and upload it on ROOFTECH cloud platform. This enables user to monitor the concealed waterproofing layer in Real Time. User can configure the MasterNode to fire up the SmartNodes on particular intervals like Once a Week, Every alternate Day or Once a Day etc. SmartNodes on scheduled interval collect the ‘resistivity’ readings of Waterproofing layer, SmartMembrane is laid upon and send the Data to MasterNode for it’s upload on Cloud platform.
User can access the Reports in the form of Drawing, Tabular, Graphical format by directly logging in to ROOFTECH’s client portal on this website or pair it with BMS for regular monitoring.
Only One MasterNode is required on each separate monitoring area. Software package is included with the MasterNode without any additional cost.
SmartMembrane™ is a sensor scrim that is laid directly on the top on any electrically isolating waterproofing layer and underneath any overburden assembly coming on the top of the membrane. Including SmartMembrane™ in the built up assembly, allows the user to troubleshoot & identify leakages in the ‘concealed‘ waterproofing layer, without the need to remove the overburden !
User has an option of selecting Passive or Active System.
Passive System basically leaves SmartMembrane and junction cables at pre-defined locations allowing ROOFTECH technician to plug-in his SmartNode and identify leakages by zonal accuracy. The scanning can be done in a scheduled manner as a part of annual check up or during the instances of leakages upon request of client.
Active System does not need a physical presence of a technician to monitor the health of waterproofing layer. Instead, SmartNode are installed in the landscape area at a pre-approved locations which basically collects the data constantly and upload the same on ROOFTECH’s cloud server. This allows the monitoring of waterproofing layers in Real-Time.
SmartNode is a Monitoring Box which is in electrical communication with the SmartMembrane. It is basically an add-on Node that enables monitoring of the SmartMembrane in an ‘automatic’ mode.
On a scheduled interval (daily / fort-night / monthly), resistance and potential difference readings of waterproofing layer is calculated, data is analysed on the hardware level and leaking zone is identified with selected zonal accuracy.
Each SmartNode can monitor up to 32 Zones. So, on an average One SmartNode is required for every 800 Sq.Ft. However, they come with IP 65 enclosure which are completely waterproof. This enables user to literally shove in the SmartNode in the Garden Roof or similar overburden for minimum visibility. Besides, contemporary design of enclosure helps with aesthetics as well.
