1. Getting Started

Note:  Sign into the Resource Center to access to the mobile application installation file, user guidance and other instructions.


The Remote Plant Setup mobile application provides Watchman Service customers an easy and cost effective means to setup a vibration analysis program utilizing the plant staff to provide asset details to your remote SymphonyAI Industrial (SAII) analysts and setup team.  This save time and money by not requiring travel to a site to gather machinery details, instead, a simple to navigate Android mobile application will be delivered to the plant for capturing such machinery information.  This article outlines the primary steps to get started with the Remote Setup application.


Using the mobile app to gather machinery information within a plant for an SAII vibration analysis program is a coordinated effort by the SAII Program Administrator, the SAII Analyst, and the Plant Personnel (App User). 

Important note:  Remote setup is a two-step process for the mobile app user, requiring two in-plant events.  The first is to gather machinery information that will be used by the analyst to setup the machinery.  The second is to reference the updated information in the mobile app to install attachment pads for portable programs or mount sensors for online or wireless programs.  In the case of wireless, during this second step, the physical sensor should be installed, assigning the unique serial number to the location via the mobile application.

These are the steps:
