New features such as home screen icons show which equipment is on or off, helping processors and growers see whether everything is functioning properly. These icons also appear on the Agri-Star app for quick-touch control of equipment. Another new feature is the ability to set up alerts on the app to notify users that storage lights have been left on. Several new Agri-Star control panel models are now available, including the mMulti-System Controller, which incorporates complete controls for two separate sets of equipment. Perfect for those tight areas where space is a concern. Gellert's Door Controller can be added directly to this model for convenience.
