One of Red Wireless’ clients, HAE & Associates, needed to monitor tanks that contained concrete and other construction materials that require a precise water temperature. Without IoT, employees had to manually probe the tanks every hour and keep a written record 24/7. This was labor intensive and because of human error, was not always precise. When the pandemic occurred and social distancing and shut downs became the new normal, this procedure became unmanageable. To solve this problem for their client, Red Wireless partnered with geotechnical consultants Rhino Wireless to source an IoT platform that could automate, store, and visualize necessary tank data, remotely.
Red Wireless solved this problem with a pilot. After sourcing and rigorously testing the needed sensors, gateways, and network server for the tank remote monitoring solution, they needed an IoT platform with the ability to create a uniquely branded IoT application and seamless edge capabilities between hardware and the cloud. The application needed a branded UX on a unique domain that could be easily accessed and interpreted by their clients’ employees, and it needed to be secure, accurate, and flexible. They needed automatic reporting and an automatic alert system. After trying several options, Red Wireless tested an application enablement platform, Losant. They could use little to no code, but still could build, test, and implement and have control over their unique requirements..
