Reporting Platforms

IoT – Internet of Things

Through our partnership with Sigfox/Sqwidnet, we focus on bringing life to fundamental objects in various industries by designing, developing and implementing real world solutions to information access needs; data transfer efficiencies; and cost-effective sharing of decision-critical statistics. The use of sensors; smart meters; chip-sets; and related software platforms enables the efficient creation of tailored solutions to meet the most stringent of demands.

The devices used vary in size, shape, functionality, battery power and supporting platform, however each device can be designed in a specific form if the customer requests this in order to meet specific solutions within an organization. Coverage on the Sigfox network is fast becoming globally representative with over 60 territories already being lit up to provide uninterrupted, low latency bandwidth allowing for instant message-based information to travel via the digital highway. This gives consumers peace of mind that the information generated by the IoT device is relevant, reliable and secure..

Autonomy and affordability are key drivers in ensuring that IoT achieves the reality of inanimate objects being able to communicate. With this in mind, Energim develops IoT solutions to real-world, everyday problems whilst maintaining self-sufficiency of the devices, network and reporting platform but without jeopardizing the ability of consumers to enjoy these technological advancements based on cost.

Sensor Data

A sensor device provides status information of objects and movement alerts as well as environmental changes, directly to the cloud.

Monitor flow of people for space optimization.

Secure or monitor some closed areas.

Temperature and Humidity monitoring where the device periodically sends both ambient temperature and humidity.

Door opening detection when the device is affixed to a door – or drawer – it sends data every time the door is opened or closed.

Vibration detection – the device sends data every time the accelerometer detects a motion.
