Salamander Reservoirs communicate wirelessly to the Salamander Control System over an encrypted, secure Radio Frequency (RF) connection. A great benefit to that architecture is that communication doesn’t require clear line-of-sight, and can therefore cover long distances, even through walls. In fact, Salamander Reservoirs can be over 1,000 feet away from the Salamander Control System.
The secure RF features a 256-bit exchange to establish a global unique key, and an AES-128 CTR for all data messages. This encryption ensures that security is maintained bi-directionally at all communication points from each Salamander Reservoir to the cloud-based notification back-end.
