Integrated distributed monitoring and control portals
An interesting yet typical use, in retail chain or multi-outlet environments,
is to securely monitor and control devices within all locations and outlets
of a retail chain of any size, anywhere, anytime, in real-time.
An example could involve a large fast food restaurant chain seeking to remotely
monitor and control every cooker, fryer, refrigerator, air conditioning system,
and electrical appliance, from every outlet, worldwide, securely, from the Internet.
