PLUTO - What it does?



PLUTO is a device that enables the user to remotely connect the Submersible Pump / Tullu Pump /any other Electrical device to its source of power from any corner of the world by using a phone(Landline /Mobile). It provides the  user with accurate information of the Power/Electricity status of the area where it is being used. The principal benefit that the user gains is that with PLUTO, he/she does not have to be  physically  present to switch ON/OFF  the water pump.

Their problems were manifold : old conventional methods, manual and physical labour ,scarce electricity and sinister summer, to say the least. Ishan fe... Read More

प्रिय श्री इशान, यह जानकर प्रसन्ता हुई कि 'परवाह' गैर-सरकारी संस्था के साथ जुड़कर आप समाज सेवा के कार्य कर रहे हैं तथा अपने ड्रीम प्रोजेक्ट 'प्लूटो' पर काम कर रहे हैं जिससे बिना किसी 3जी/4जी इन्टरनेट कनेक्शन के साधारण फ़ोन से किशानो के पानी के पम्प शुरू अथवा बंद कर सकते हैं | आपका यह प्रोजेक्ट बहुत अच्छा है|

Dear Ishan Pluto is useful. The entire last week i could operate my washing machine while I was at work and that gave me extra time for my 12 year old son. We could finish our homework and also read a book together.
Good Idea Ishan.

Much Love
