The QK-G025 module is an industrial grade product which is designed to provide remote control of pumps, valves and pipelines. As it can work in two modes, Dead Man and Timed Pulse, it can be used for a wide variety of remote applications.

The inputs can be from a wide variety of sensors, e.g. photocell receivers, CO2 monitors, leak detectors etc.
As you can set the QK-G025 up without a PC, it is easy to install in remote locations, you just need a power supply, a registered SIM and a phone signal.
