Tauranga based, Sensum IoT releases the first IoT hardware platform for both Sigfox and Lora networks.
The device integrates seamlessly with the Sensum IoT Platform and it has a variety of applications such as:
- Water/Power/Gas metering
- Asset tracking
- Temp/Moisture monitoring
- and many more…
IoT devices can work for years with just a couple of alkaline batteries monitoring virtually any parameter of a business process. Email/SMS messages can be sent to alert users when something needs attention.
Logistics is a great application for the IoT technology. Keep track of key assets, know the temperature and humidity of your cool stores and refrigeration units, has someone left the door open or light on? These things and more can really add value to your bottom line through the more effective and efficient use of your resources.
Smart Cities use Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as these, to connect sensors, lights, and meters to collect and analyze data. The cities then use this data to improve infrastructure, public utilities and services. M2M Tech is currently running a test pilot for residential water metering that can really improve how cities manage their water.
Other application areas include Precision Agriculture, where these devices can be used to track vehicles, livestock, monitor crops and storage. The agriculture sector can greatly benefit from efficient water, power and fertilizers usage, not to mention better and bigger crops.
Sensum IoT has completed a Smart Farm pilot at the Toi-Ohomai Institute of Technology where soil moisture probes keep track of moisture levels and allow users to accurately know when and how much water a crop needs. All monitoring and irrigation control can be done remotely through the Sensum IoT Platform.
How would you use this technology in your business?
