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.
