What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the technology that collects data from various assets in your business and transmits it to you in real time using the Internet. Back in 2008 there were already more things connected to the Internet than people.
With the Internet of Things there are limitless opportunities for business and society.
Limitless opportunities for businesses
Know instantly when an asset changes state
Wireless sensor solutions can be used by asset managers who want to know instantly when an asset changes state. For example, insurance premiums on high value or high risk assets can be reduced with monitoring and instant alerting via ID sensors. Temperature levels on generators, transformers, chillers, boilers or other high value machinery can be monitored with temperature and vibration sensors. Unauthorised access to assets can be controlled by installing ambient light or motion sensors.
Proactive notifications to your IT staff
Businesses rely heavily on their computer systems and data servers. Their data closets and server room are full of expensive computers and networking equipment that are designed to operate within a given temperature range. Smart monitoring solutions for server rooms include wireless temperature, humidity and water sensors that are perfect for use inside data closets and server rooms. Notifications can be setup to alert your IT staff if anything is outside of their preferred range.
Real-time temperature and vibration monitoring
Wireless temperature sensors can be installed to monitor both room temperatures as well as duct output temperature. Sensors and accelerometers can detect temperature and vibration levels on air circulation fans (if a fan is starting to fail, the motor will get hot and vibrate more than normal). The temperature sensors and accelerometers can be set to take readings every hour and send automatic alerts to your staff if readings signify any potential issues, allowing them to respond immediately.
