The private clinic in the northwest of Switzerland is one of the most renowned private medical clinics in Switzerland. The clinic is comprised of two main parts with varying ages of construction and extensions. Some medicines are kept in cabinets located on the same floors as patients so as to be conveniently close at hand.
Ensuring that all medication is kept at the ideal storage humidity and temperature is of high importance to the clinic operators. For that reason the clinic uses an IoT solution from the Switzercloud. The IoT sensors inside the cabinets periodically measure temperature and humidity and send the values via LoRaWAN® to the Switzercloud. There they are processed and displayed to the clinic operator within the end-customer dashboard. Service technicians are immediately notified by the Switzercloud if and when values exceed the users pre-defined range.
The building management system at the clinic comes from Schneider Electric and was integrated by experts from Zürich. Thanks to the extensive range of interfaces on the Switzercloud, it was easy to integrate the captured data directly from the Switzercloud into the Schneider Electric system. This first IoT use case will serve as the foundation for other Switzercloud applications such as parking monitoring, object tracking or any other IoT solution that will make clinic operations more efficient and a guests visit more enjoyable.
