Asset Monitoring Solutions

Asset monitoring solutions: maintain asset integrity, improve safety and increase efficiency and asset lifecycle with intelligent decision-making.

Visionist Consulting

Weather and indoor environmental conditions can affect the lifecycle of most assets. In addition, some assets need to be kept in a particular kind of environment in order to operate effectively. So, how do you monitor your assets’ conditions the smart way?

Smarter Technologies’ environmental sensor and asset monitoring solutions allow you to:

  • Install micro weather stations

  • Monitor your assets’ environments

  • Collect and view environment data on velocity, wind direction, humidity, light level, ambient pressure, temperature and more

These sensors transmit data over the Orion Data Network, providing real-time alerts to prevent disaster and asset degradation and to inform preventative and reactive decision-making. All Smarter Technologies’ solutions automate and streamline previously labour-intensive processes and eliminate the possibility of human error.

What is the Orion Data Network?

Smarter Technologies’ privately-owned Orion Data Network is a low-power, long-range, real-time tracking and monitoring network being used the world over. Orion’s proprietary, military-grade communication technology runs on low-power radio. With a set of smart sensors, tags and gateways, the Orion system sends real-time, automatic updates to your bespoke management dashboard.

All Smarter Technologies’ environmental sensor solutions can be easily integrated with your existing systems and our other asset tracking, monitoring and recovery solutions. This real-time data feedback over the Orion Data Network provides valuable business insights for safer and more profitable business decisions.
