Sign Up for rCloud Updates Here
Retrotec has released rCloud, the most powerful automated testing app.
rCloud geolocates the test location, automatically performs blower door or duct tests to common standards and creates secure compliance reports that can be shared immediately and viewed from anywhere.
How it works
Setup your equipment. Open rCloud on your smartphone or tablet, enter the address and select the type of test - rCloud does the rest.
rCloud allows anyone with a mobile device to perform a fully automated blower door or duct test. The rCloud app provides secure and accurate data that includes the location where the test was performed, local weather, set-up conditions, photos and the calibration date of the gauge. In some markets, rCloud will provide existing housing data.
The rCloud app connects directly to the DM32 WiFi smart gauge to perform your test. The data and images are stored on a remote secure server. The account can have multiple users and the reports can be viewed in the app or online.
Security and privacy
Data is collected securely, time/date-stamped, geo-tagged, and uploaded to a cloud storage. While the data is stored in the device it is encrypted and cannot be altered. The data is uploaded when an internet connection is available. Data storage is secured through Microsoft Azure.
The data is secure the moment the test is completed.
The rCloud app provides quality assurance for the user and entire team. It assures the tests were performed in compliance with the testing standards and the data was collected directly from the gauge. No more pencil and paper or lost test results.
The rCloud app currently includes testing standards for International Energy Conservation Code 2009, 2012 and 2015, RESNET and California Title 24 standards.
This includes duct testing and single and multipoint blower door tests. We are currently implementing RESNET/ANSI standard 380 and European test standards.
Additional testing standards will be added.
One of the most powerful benefits of rCloud is the ability to see all the test locations on a map. Select any location and see all the test performed at that location then select a test to see and share the compliance report.
The release of rCloud completes an eight-year evolution that includes the DM32, the world’s first WiFi touchscreen smart gauge, the most accurate blower door systems, and the easiest-to-use duct testing system.
The rCloud is compatible with all of Retrotec’s fans and TEC fans with the DM32 and Speed Control Adapter.
Retrotec has never stopped providing innovation. We believe that automated secure data is the future of our industry. Join us as we provide the Future of Testing to everyone.
Take advantage of free testing: rCloud is available at no cost for all of 2017.
Pricing (Starting 2018)
At each individual address
With-in 30 day timeframe
$2 US per duct test.
$2 US per blower door test.
It’s that simple. For each type of test you do you pay $2 US.
We also know that it is often necessary to retest at the same location. As such, with each $2 purchase, you can retest as many times as you want within a 30 day timeframe at the same location and the same test type. This means that if you need to do a Blower Door test and a Duct test at the same house, you can redo those tests as many times as you want within the 30 day period and you would only pay $2 for the Blower Door test and $2 for the Duct test.
Customers will be billed on the first day of the month for all of the tests that were performed during the previous month. rCloud customers will be required to enter valid credit cards (Visa, Mastercard or American Express) into their rCloud account.
By using rCloud, you automatically agree to the End User Licensing Agreement listed here.
