Adding intelligence to your installations



SatWatch is a compact IoT device helping DTH operators to remotely monitor the satellite signal quality within their service footprint. The device connects to an existing installation and measures the signal strength and MER level of a set of monitored transponders 24/7. The SatWatch will send the operator early alerts over a 2G/3G mobile network as soon as it identifies a degradation in signal strength or MER leveles of any of the monitored transponders.

Local data connection offers access to site history, firmware upgrades and device configuration, allowing the user to program the alarm conditions and notification messages.


Benefits for DTH operators:
  • Increase customer satisfaction - get early warning alerts and learn about reception issues before they impact the viewing experience of your subscribers and turn into expensive problems.
  • Use collected data to optimize on real time basis the power of the sat transponders and maximize service availability based on signal levels measured in the field.
  • Reduce audit and maintenance costs of field installations by receiving full signal quality information 24/7 and reduce visits to your sites.
  • Low budget and easy installation.
