GSI’s optional WatchDog™ System puts the control in your hands by allowing producers to remotely monitor and control their dryer from any web accessible device. This innovative technology gives producers the freedom to leave the farm with peace of mind knowing that they are always only one click away. WatchDog™ can be installed on any GSI dryer with Vision Controls.
WatchDog allows you to make adjustments to your dryer settings from the convenience of your smart phone. Only adjustments that are safe to make are allowed so there are no safety issues involved. The main screen used remotely for monitoring is the same as on the dryer, but the menus used for making a change have been made phone and tablet friendly.
WatchDog allows you to monitor functions such as moisture, temperature and dryer status. It also eliminates the guessing game of wondering if your dryer is still running. WatchDog can be set to notify you via text or email if the dryer shuts off or a problem arises, day or night.
The WatchDog technology works through GSI’s Vision Controls which are built with a full color graphic touch screen, designed to withstand the harsh environment of a farm operation. Whether you are viewing WatchDog on the Vision Control box or your smart phone, the display screen looks the same so there is no confusion when viewing from different devices.

"WatchDog offers the farmer a little peace of mind"Trafton Shannon - Saline County Missouri
Using his smartphone, Shannon is able to monitor the dryer operation with GSI’s WatchDog System, which monitors various dryer functions such as moisture, temperature and dryer status, all from the convenience of a home or office computer, or from a smartphone. It sends texts or emails to Shannon’s smartphone on the dryer’s progress. It offers the farmer a little peace of mind. “When I go to bed, I set my phone next to me and I can see what is going on down the road,” Shannon says. “And when I am on the road or in the field, I can monitor the grain system and shut it down if necessary.”
