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:-
- Smart grids
- Fuel tank levels, such as amount of fuel oil used over a period of time.
- Photo Voltaic (Solar) installations.
- Water flow, such as for billing domestic & industrial customers.
- Calculation of stock in a silo, for audit & ordering purposes
