iMist Ready!

Posted on June 25, 2017 by B. John Bettenhausen

Ever wish you had an app to control your misting system? Now its available!   

iMist2 is MistAway's Internet access hardware and software used to connect a MistAway misting system to the Internet and allow smartphone control via an app.

MistAway has been quietly perfecting their Internet connection hardware and software over the last couple years. Version 2 is now in production, iMist2.

As dealers we've been using the first version for a couple years and it has been great.  With the release of the latest equipment on June 26, 2017 we are offering it to all our DIY customers because the ease of installation is finally at the point most people can get it connected and installed without any problems.

 

     What iMist2 offers:

    The iMist app is available for both iPhone & Android smartphones.  IMist2 allows you to use your phone rather than the hand-held remote to:

    1. MIST
    2. STOP MIST
    3. SKIP NEXT MIST

    It also provides the ability to change the system mode of operation:

    1. OFF
    2. REMOTE ONLY
    3. AUTO EVERYDAY
    4. AUTO CUSTOM

    iMist also allows you to instantly:

    1. see if your system is Off or On and operating normally 
    2. see if the system juice level is OK, Low, or Empty
    3. observe the system's last mist and next scheduled mist
    4. know the last time iMist communicated with your system
    5. check the times you've set for all your programmed mistings.

    All iMist2 Ready systems INCLUDE system leak protection! 
    iMist2 Ready Gen 1.3s and, as always, all Gen III+  systems have factory installed leak protection.  If your nozzle circuit has an issue, it will STOP as soon as the leak is detected. It could pay for itself with one leak!

    iMist2 functionality requires three components:

    1. iMist2 enabled misting system
      1. all Gen 3s shipping after June 26, 2017 come iMist2 Ready
      2. iMist Ready Gen 1.3s are available as are non-ready systems
    2. iMist Gateway - physically connects to your existing Internet connection
      1. Connect the Gateway to an open port on your router or switch
      2. Connect the Gateway to an electrical outlet
    3. Subscription for the service
      1. Supply us with some critical information
      2. Sign up for auto-bill-pay for the subscription 

    To Get Started with iMist2:

    NEW MISTAWAY CUSTOMERS:
    Purchase an "iMist Ready Gen 1.3" or any new Gen III+ and simply add a gateway to your order and we will contact you to set up the service.

    EXISTING MISTAWAY SYSTEM OWNERS:
    Purchase an iMist2 Retrofit Kit and we will contact you to set up the service.

    NOTE TO ALL POTENTIAL iMIST2 CUSTOMERS:
    iMist is truly a dealer tool for their local customers -- but many DIY customers like seeing the status and having the ability to control their MistAway system from their smartphone.

    If you are one of those customers, and as the dealer who will be supplying iMist2 to you, know that your system will show it's information on our Dashboard.  We will have the ability to monitor your system and will send you an email if we see something amiss. There are no performance guarantees, but this is part of the service.   Our Dashboard will show extensive operating information about your system and we will endeavor in keeping you informed.
