Are Balers and Compactors Enough?
OK, here is the scenario: You are a business owner who wants to reduce the time and expense related to waste handling and recycling. You have done your homework and understand the ROI provided by installing a baler for recyclables and a compactor for waste. You did your due diligence to research which manufacturer offers equipment and service with the greatest longevity, lowest total cost of ownership, and a true partnership approach. You chose Harmony. Your wise decision has had an immediate positive impact on your bottom line and the environment. Kudos to you!
But, did you know that you can optimize all of your waste handling or recycling equipment even further? Our Insite Technology is an option that many business owners are taking advantage of to help with scheduling, maintenance, and to ensure their equipment is being used to its fullest potential. It is currently being used in airports, shopping malls, retail chains, casinos, universities, municipal buildings, medical centers, and more!
What Is Insite Technology?
Insite is invisible technology that can be installed on any Harmony indoor or outdoor compactor or baler. Each application is different and yields different real time information that can be communicated with both the operator and others through wireless, Ethernet, or wi-fi communications.
This valuable information helps you make sure that your getting the most out of each waste cube, compactor container, or bale. It also allows you to create the most efficient FTE’s and sensible hauling schedule. The long term data gives you insight to when your equipment is due for periodic maintenance or might need immediate service.
Here are the three different types of Insite Technology currently offered by Harmony Enterprises.
Insite For Indoor Compactors
Insite Technology eliminates the need for your staff to physically check on your indoor compactor. Insite will send you an email or SMS text message alerting you of these conditions:
- Partial Full
- Compactor is Full
- Main Door Open
- Compactor Unplugged/Not Reporting
- Cell Signal Strength
You will have ability to monitor your equipment online for other important information such as compaction cycles and compaction time. You can do this from any device at any time and manage your assets on a “just in time” basis.
With the reporting that this state-of-the-art service can provide, you will increase the life of the equipment, reduce unnecessary labor, schedule the most efficient hauling, and stay proactive with preventive maintenance. All reports can be exported in a variety of user-friendly formats such as Excel, pdf, etc.
Our private network servers provide safety and security from external threats and ransomware. Insite Technology can be used via cellular connection, ethernet connection, or Wi-Fi.
All Insite customers have the ability to create IoT Scenes of their assets that include master dashboards of a larger group of assets. We created a full replica scene for the French Open at Roland Garros last year that allowed their staff to see all of their compactors, their current status, and their true location on one detailed map. Not only did they receive their email and SMS text alerts, they could see the status symbols change on each machine as they went partial full, full, or had their doors left open. This allowed the staff to service those compactors immediately, and identify exactly where and when the alerts occurred in a much more efficient way.

Insite For Outdoor Compactors
Insite technology can also be added to any make and model of Outdoor Compactors. This system provides you with valuable asset information that will increase your bottom line, such as:
- Fullness Of Containers – Partial Full and Full
- Container Present
- Cycle Count
- Motor Run Time
- Fluid Levels
- Communication Time-Outs
- Amp Draw
- Maintenance Reminders
- Contact Hauler For Pull Of Full Compactor
This technology ensures that your compactors are being emptied only when they are near completely full and that your staff is operating the equipment at the appropriate time. This will help reduce the frequency of your pulls, as well as the money spent on waste handling. It also helps the environment by putting less CO2 gas into the atmosphere with carbon emissions from trucks.
As in the case of our Insite Technology for Indoor Compactors, Insite for Outdoor Compactors also operate on a private network server, providing safety and security from external threats and ransomware. Insite Technology can be used via cellular connection, ethernet connection, or Wi-Fi.
