With Smarter Technologies’ smart building solutions, you get full visibility of your entire building with real-time notifications, alarms and asset tracking. Harnessing the power of our Orion Data Network, you’ll be able to observe and monitor your entire premises, asset by asset, on your customised dashboard.

What is the Orion Data Network?

Smarter Technologies’ privately-owned Orion Data Network is a low-power, long-range, real-time asset tracking and security network being used the world over. The Orion Data Network uses active radio frequency identification (RFID) asset management technology that connects to your network and relays information in real-time, automatically updating the location and condition of your assets.

When placed on assets within your building, Orion tags work with the gateways to provide a succinct overview of all of your assets, their usage and output on one bespoke dashboard. This dashboard can be easily accessed via a laptop or tablet so that you get the best overview of how your building works. You’ll also receive instant alerts and notifications for important events and triggers, such as water leaks, after-hours motion, fluctuations in temperatures or any other unusual events.

By tagging assets such as heat sensors, smoke alarms and fire doors, plants or indeed individuals, you can track your items throughout tower blocks or housing developments over the country—at any time, from anywhere.
