IoT Solution for Mobile Energy Needs


On construction projects, I have an accurate overview of my mobile energy units at anytime from anywhere.

energy4rent is one of the market leaders in the rental of mobile heating systems. In order to make energy consumption even more transparent and efficient, energy4rent chose a Switzercloud IoT solution for a construction project in the Austrian district of St. Johann im Pongau. Our local Switzercloud partner and integrator of the IoT project is Austrian company Kelmin.

Electric air heaters were retrofitted by Kelmin with IoT devices. These recognize each start and stop of the heater and immediately send the new status via LoRaWAN® to the Switzercloud where the data is processed and saved. This means that, at any moment, energy4rent knows which heater has been in use and its running duration, so it can transparently see the energy consumption for the corresponding operating time accordingly. Additionally, the temperature and humidity of heated rooms on the construction site are monitored with other IoT devices. In conjunction with the heating times, the climate values provide important insights to all parties involved: rooms too cold / humidity too high, or even potential issues with the heaters. A total of around 40 IoT devices are in use on 7 floors. Using these IoT devices means costly and inconvenient cabling is unnecessary. All the heaters can be redeployed simply and quickly to another room or even to another construction site.

Naturally, the customer, in this case a leading European construction company, also has access to the clearly displayed data on the Switzercloud.
