IoT Solution for Monitoring Systems
I immediately receive an automatic voice message or SMS in the event of a fault on my system.
Consisting of 3'500 inhabitants, the municipality of Moosseedorf in canton Bern maintains numerous facilities which require constant monitoring. Thus far, faults have been recorded directly on the respective system and transmitted to the person in charge via SMS over the 2G network. However, this technology is out of date and Moosseedorf has been looking for a replacement solution.
In the end, the municipality chose a smart and unique solution using LoRaWAN® technology on the Switzercloud. The existing transmission modules were replaced with LoRaWAN® devices. As soon as the system detects a fault, it is sent to the Switzercloud via the municipality's own LoRaWAN® network and processed further. From here, the escalation process defined by Mosseedorf comes into play. The Switzercloud can send SMSes, make calls with voice messages, acknowledge alarms and much more. Conveniently, the system is easily restarted remotely by the Switzercloud and staff receive a confirmation when everything is working correctly again. The result is greatly reduced number of unnecessary on-site visits.
The same solution also monitors cooling systems at outdoor swimming locations, levels of wastewater in pumping stations, heating issues in school buildings and faults in woodchip heating systems.
