Smart solutions for smart cities.

Visionist Consulting

Optimising asset lifecycles and enable significant cost-savings in your city

States, county councils, district councils and local councils control multi-million budgets. They have fleets of vehicles and equipment and employ tens of thousands of staff. With smarter technology solutions, public services have the opportunity to work more efficiently and create smart cities.

Smarter Technologies works alongside councils to design, build and install cost-effective, green, sustainable and scalable, smart asset management and security solutions for every aspect of growing ‘Smart City’.

How it works?

Smarter Technologies creates end-to-end asset tracking solutions utilising state-of-the-art low-power radio, IoT and GPS technology transmitting data over our privately-owned Orion Data Network. Supporting highly cost-effective and scalable applications, Orion is designed to reduce ongoing costs as well as reduce the environmental footprint within the area served.

Orion Network solutions can be configured to be discreet, covert or, in the case of some security solutions, an overt deterrent. They can also be powered in various different ways, including battery or solar. Orion tags can be equipped with a wide variety of sensors so that each solution can be multi-layered and multipurpose. All solution components take into account environmental considerations and are designed to be repurposed, saving space, time and money and promoting a more aesthetically-pleasing, greener cityscape.

The system utilises low-power radio and GPS tags and gateways with IoT-enabled sensors to track the location, status and condition of all your assets. A multitude of data sets is fed back in real-time on your customised management dashboard.

Enable informed decision making and operational planning with real-time data and analytics.
