Enterprise Use Cases
Enterprises implementing IoT solutions and applications, managing connected devices, and monitoring equipment are creating new transformative processes to improve operations. Senet’s LoRaWAN connectivity enables disparate parts of an enterprise to communicate with each other and makes businesses safer, more efficient, and easier to control.
Securely tracking the location and condition of valuable equipment is critical to many industries, and managing asset utilization and reducing lifecycle costs becomes much easier with IoT-enabled solutions.
Integrating data from intelligent technologies improves decision making for planning and operations. Sensors measure location, vibration, temperature, loads and speeds and use a combination of real-time and historical data to recommend maintenance before issues develop. Access to asset performance data also maximizes uptime and provides the ability to analyze trends to meet and exceed production goals.
Leaks in pipelines and other systems that involve water, gas or chemicals present a serious issue with the potential for significant economic losses or substantial environmental pollution.
Water leak detection and flooding sensors monitor for the presence of water inside and outside enterprise facilities. If a malfunction occurs or an anomaly is detected, the system pinpoints and sends alerts with actionable information to facility managers to guide quick response and resolution.
Research has proven that searching for available parking spaces increases traffic congestion and carbon emissions, frustrates drivers, and stifles economic opportunities for businesses.
In-ground or surface-mounted IoT sensors provide accurate vehicle detection in parking spaces and vehicle counts for parking lot entrances and exits. Capturing real-time parking data can streamline and improve overall parking space utilization and contribute to business and municipal revenue streams.
Ever-increasing population densities are creating perfect conditions for rats and other rodents to thrive. Pest control programs are necessary to protect people and facilities from rodent disease, contamination and damage, yet manual inspections are costly and time consuming.
Connected pest management solutions enable a new level of visibility and can be monitored anywhere and in real-time. Rugged, water-resistant traps deliver quick, high-voltage shock offering a humane and safe alternative to rodenticides. Easy web and mobile application pairing, multi-year trap battery life and real-time alerts when service is required improve efficiencies and reduce costs for indoor and outdoor rodent control programs.
The unfortunate reality is that crime exists in the world, and every day citizens are confronted with random acts of violence in public spaces. Demand for comprehensive safety and security solutions is on the rise. IoT-enabled public safety solutions provide first responders with innovative technology that can help mitigate risk and enhance the safety of individuals.
LoRaWAN technology is being incorporated into personal wearable devices such as ID badges and are equipped with a panic button to send an instant SOS with the user’s location information. Deployed across corporate and college campuses, these solutions are designed to address the gap of one second to attack vs. seven seconds to dial 911 with cell phone-based solutions.
Water is a precious resource for enterprises, yet the EPA estimates more than 60% of irrigation goes to waste. Conventional irrigation methods for managed facilities can be difficult to justify – especially when sub-surface water supplies are strained.
Remotely operated sprinkler heads and nozzles can be customized with watering schedules based on soil moisture and weather conditions – reducing unnecessary water use and enhancing sustainability. Enterprises using smart irrigation control systems are able to make every drop of water count.
The enterprise workforce has become increasingly mobile and rapidly transitioned to an “anytime, anywhere” work ethos. As a result, office space can sit unused for long periods of time or can be overbooked, based on the unpredictable flow of employees and visitors. The task of adequately utilizing and scheduling available space has become a logistical challenge for businesses.
Evidence-based occupancy data from smart sensors takes away guesswork and equips teams with actionable intelligence to improve workplace practices, inform future designs to accommodate a growing workforce, and ultimately boost employee productivity.
Steam is used in a wide range of industries. Common applications include steam heated processes in factories and steam driven turbines in electric power plants. Steam traps are a type of automatic valve that filters out condensed steam and non-condensable gases such as air without letting steam escape. Steam traps fail at an average rate of 10 – 30% each year creating waste and costly inefficiencies. Testing steam traps is a labor-intensive process typically done manually once per year.
Ultrasonic steam trap monitoring systems allow enterprises to interrogate their steam trap population on a frequent basis to detect failures. Data is securely sent to an online building management system providing dashboard visibility and reports on which traps are functioning normally and which need repair.
Maintaining appropriate temperature of valuable assets is important to healthcare, food services and other industries. Temperature excursion can cause catastrophic product loss. In addition to the destruction of resources, these events expose enterprises to losses such as damage to brand, reputation and public image.
Wireless, remote monitoring of temperature and humidity with low power sensors provide enterprises with the ability to access readings and historical logging for compliance audits. Alarm systems with multiple threshold settings provide cost-effective protection and safety measures.
IoT technology is transforming the waste and recycling industry by providing increased efficiencies and decreased operating costs. Being able to automatically sense and monitor bin fill level, location and pick-up frequency allows city waste departments and contracted waste haulers to track performance, manage the status of work orders in real-time and decrease labor costs.
Smart waste monitoring solutions reduce both collection times and expenses. Automatic notification alerts when bins are reaching pre-defined thresholds provide intelligent route planning for collection service providers and eliminates unnecessary visits and overflowing garbage bins for end users.
