Industrial control:

  • Indoor Air Quality

Monitoring of toxic gas and oxygen levels inside labs and factories to ensure workers and goods safety.

  • Temperature Monitoring

Control of temperature inside industrial and medical fridges with sensitive merchandise.

  • Maintain & repair

Sensors installed inside equipment will monitor if any parts exceeded their designed thresholds, and will automatically send reports to owners and manufacturers if they have. Early predictions on equipment malfunctions can be made with parts and service / maintenance can be automatically scheduled ahead of an actual part failure.

  • Maintain quality & consistency

Using networked sensors, cameras, and lasers to analyse manufacturing processes, you can determine part quality from its physical characteristics; identify if it is the right component for the job and monitor trends, variations, and relationships in the system over time.
