What if a building could talk? Thanks to the Internet of Things, now you can. The latest IoT solution suite, powered by the Internet or the LoRa network dedicated to the Internet of Things, takes the concept of intelligent buildings to a new level. This next generation of IoT solutions is more economical, autonomous and more flexible than previous generations of connectivity technology. It has never been easier to gather real-time information on infrastructure stability, rodent infestations, garbage collection, and more. Monitors building systems, tracks heavy equipment and protects valuable assets with wireless plug-and-play solutions that work well on large and small buildings
Track construction equipment to combat theft and optimize usage
Real-time tracking and cloud-based data sets enable construction companies to reduce theft, increase productivity, and control operational costs. The theft of valuable machines and equipment, such as electrical panels of buildings, is very expensive. Protecting your equipment has a deterrent effect on potential thieves, and if a robbery occurs, tracking information will be instrumental in enabling police to retrieve stolen property and collect evidence for the process. Heavy equipment tracking also provides valuable information to help managers monitor oversights and assess usage trends.
Protect construction sites in a simple and economical way
Traditional alarms and CCTV systems are expensive to install on building sites and time consuming to set up. This makes them unfeasible for many workplaces, especially short-term projects, multiple-site locations, and locations where power is unavailable. Connected to the LoRa IoT network, the next generation of wireless alarms using presence sensing sensors is the perfect solution for early stage designs and non-motorized sections of building sites. These alarm units operate entirely on battery power and can be located anywhere on the site.
LoRa IoT offers a solution to protect expensive assets at construction sites. Switching to connected electrical panels for tracking prevents them from being stolen or damaged. When motion is detected, the panel triggers an alert via LoRa IoT network to the electrical contractor. Motion detection also triggers the GPS tracker, since location details are important information for the police to recover assets and help dismantle the black market networks.
Smoke and fire alerts sent over the Internet
The maintenance of fire safety equipment is time-consuming and many man-hours are wasted by performing unnecessary checks. Alerts triggered by traditional smoke detectors may not be heard by enough or completely ignored people. Smoke detectors connected to the LoRa network can send alerts in real time, maintain active status and battery level. Security companies can respond more quickly to alerts, improve security, retain customers, win new contracts, and better manage their operations.
Backup alarm systems
Security companies must provide reliable and consistent protection. Based on the LoRa IoT network, smart security solutions are smarter than GSM blockers, they hold security guards accountable and increase the reliability of the alarm system. Instead of competing with traditional systems, these smart devices complement existing platforms and provide a cost-effective and scalable way for security providers to increase the effectiveness of their existing services.
The infrastructure of the building automation system is simpler and cheaper than ever
Low cost, standalone and wireless sensors can be installed quickly and easily throughout the building to monitor systems such as HVAC, boilers, light, energy, fire and safety. They also allow you to monitor and control operational parameters such as temperature, occupancy, indoor air quality and humidity and opening ports. Heavy machinery such as elevators and escalators can also be equipped with sensors to predict interruptions and trigger quick corrective action when a fault is detected. Even water and legionella leaks can be detected with IoT sensors. These sensors run on the same battery for years, eliminating the hassle of manual maintenance and control.
Collect consumption data effortlessly
Put an end to the time and money spent on manual meter reading on site and data processing. Once activated, the meters can transmit data immediately via the internet or LoRa, without any necessary pairing or configuration and without having to replace the battery for years. You can now monitor and optimize your infrastructure in real-time to detect leaks, automate billing, and remotely enable and disable services.
Insights into the integrity of the building's infrastructure
Detect damage to the building structure by measuring cracks, extensions or extensometers in the main structural elements. Constant monitoring can prevent extensive damage to the building, helping engineers predict and plan for building improvements.
Ensuring that defibrillators are ready for use
Defibrillators are now commonly available in public buildings and workplaces. They must be in perfect working order 100% of the time so they can save lives. Precious data is sent over the LoRa network to ensure it is working properly, including daily test results, battery tests, port openings, and operating status.
Avoid rodent infestations
Rodents transmit dozens of diseases and are also the main cause of electrical fires. Customer satisfaction, reputation, competitive positioning and corporate responsibility are at stake. Rodents are partially blind, they move by touching and sniffing everything around them, so the traps alone are ineffective, as rodents try to avoid new objects. Thanks to IoT, rodent activity monitoring solutions based on infrared sensors can identify the active points of rodent activity in the building, and rodent management programs can use this data to capture up to 6 times more mice.
Let the trash talk
Do not waste time calling the garbage collection service; the container fill level is automatically sent to the cloud to trigger a garbage collection request. A simple temperature sensor and fire alarm can also be added and triggered as appropriate. This offers practicality and security and reduces collection requests.
Just press the button to call the service
Simple push-button devices connected to the LoRa IoT network enable facility managers to reduce costs, anticipate customer needs, and delight customers with exceptional service. When stock needs to be replenished or facilities need servicing, simply press the button. The alert is sent by the LoRa network to the installation manager panel, which schedules the job. Over time, data can be used to predict future alerts. Immediate compliance keeps the customer happy and increases the value of having an installation manager for the business.
What if your table could talk?
New trends like flex office, home office and co-working are impacting on workspace management. Intelligent desktop monitoring solutions based on infrared technology and temperature sensors are the ideal solution to map and monitor occupancy rates of your office space (tables and meeting rooms) and make it easy to move to these new ways of working. Occupancy rates will increase and real estate costs will be optimized as the space available can be sold, rented or reused.
Monitor employee presence remotely
Time clocks connected to the Internet through the LoRa IoT network allow you to monitor the presence of your employees in remote workplaces. Forget the hassle of SIM cards to track the comings and goings of employees with constant, real-time monitoring.
Monitoring Customer Satisfaction
Customer feedback is essential to improving customer feedback is essential to improving services and achieving higher levels of satisfaction. It's even better when you can get live feedback. In any area where customer feedback is important, simply place a small, customizable, connected panel or button to collect customer feedback effortlessly. Use a simple color code to trigger instant customer responses as they leave the areas under your management. Data is available in the cloud for viewing and interpreting results. Alerts based on thresholds or specific results can also be triggered for a faster customer response.
