The Internet of things can monitor the following variables remotely using wireless sensors.
Wireless technologies such as LORA provide long range low bandwidth communication of the data, back to the ‘gateway’. The gateway is the device that puts the data onto the Internet cloud.
Some things that Smart Metering can monitor include:-
- Fuel tank levels, such as amount of fuel oil used over a period of time, and levels in the tank. This can also warn tank owners of fuel theft or leakage.
- Photo Voltaic (Solar) installations. How much energy is being generated, and which sites are producing how much.
- Water flow, such as for billing domestic & industrial customers. This can save costs of manually checking meters.
- Calculation of stock in a silo, for audit & ordering purposes
