Recordable, Talking Remote Control

Sicon-8 is a modestly-priced, but
full-featured dial-up remote control
with speech capability and a powerful
new Webserver. The Sicon-8
can speak in your staff's language
because you record your own messages.
The Sicon-8 was designed to be a
complete solution for facilities with
basic to moderate control requirements.
All of the I/O, including 8 channels of
relays, are included on the main board
so there is no need to buy anything else
to use the product. All metering, status
and control connections are on
depluggable screw terminals. An expander
chassis, the SX-8, adds eight channels
of metering, status & control to an
existing Sicon-8. Up to three SX-8s may
be added to a Sicon-8 for a maximum of
Designed to be controlled from the
onboard Ethernet interface, any dial-up
telephone or its serial port, the
Sicon-8 gives you the control options
that you need. The onboard Web server
gives access to all of the Sicon-8's
metering, Status & basic control
functions & supports several
simultaneous users with 4 different
access levels. The Web server requires no
(not Java) capable Web browser to
operate and works on multiple operating
systems and browsers. The dial-up
control is based on proprietary voice
recording technology that lets you
record your own messages, in any
language, and is smoother sounding than
most other voice recording technologies.
Choosing the right remote control for
your operation is a big decision. The
wrong choice can be expensive in many
ways. We've created a downloadable

Sicon-8's Onboard Web-server:
The onboard Web server duplicates much of the
Sicontroller software's control functions and runs
on any Java capable browser.
As shown below, the Web server is designed to be
uncomplicated and will run on multiple platforms
and browsers, provided that
they are Java capable. It even works on the
iPhone's Safari browser. Meters are updated
approximately every two seconds and
the Web server shows the current meter values,
channel status and alarms.
Sicon-8's Web server allows for 4 different access
Reader - Can not operate any controls. All
controls are hidden from readers.
Controller - Can operate any control on the main
page but cannot perform or access any setup
Administrator - Has access to all functions,
except top level password changes.
Super-Administrator - Similar to the
administrator, the Super-Admin is the only one
that can change their own password.
This user level is designed to protect owners from
being locked out of the Sicon-8.
The Sicon-8's internal Webserver can send
email/text messages for alarms and routine
Hardware logs can be emailed at scheduled
intervals or can be viewed online at any time.
The Webserver has its own alarm handler, with
advanced new features, and can perform
action sequences independently from the main
