Smart Industry

The new industrial revolution

The IoT (Internet of Things) is changing the uses of objects already in use in our daily lives in a very positive way and thus represents a real technological accelerator. A real driver of the new industrial revolution, the IoT is transforming factories, warehouses, logistics and, more globally, the entire industrial value chain.

IOT is already playing a key role in providing solutions to the disruption of the supply chain and the resulting concerns such as :

The decline in production

Lack of visibility on a large amount of data related to the production environment

Poor fault management

Our solutions

Combined with Artificial Intelligence, the power of connected objects is already revolutionising the industrial sector as well as our urban environments.

Intelligent Monitoring: Safety and production conditions

Intelligent sensors monitor machines and plants in real time to provide actionable information that can be used to improve the customer experience, address operational setbacks and maximise IoT opportunities.

Collect consumption data effortlessly

Put an end to time and money spent on meter readings and manual data processing. Once activated, connected meters start immediately, transmitting data over the public Sigfox network without pairing or configuration and providing years of battery life.

Notifications according to the filling level of a tank

Get accurate fill level measurements for tanks and silos to anticipate refills, remotely and in real time. This saves time spent on manual checks and ensures constant monitoring of important materials like gas and grain.

Monitor employee presence remotely

Clocks connected to the Internet via the Sigfox global IoT network allow employers to monitor the presence of workers at remote job sites. Forget the hassle of SIM cards to track the whereabouts of employees with constant, time-sensitive connected monitoring.

Boost your production

With intelligent monitoring based on a cluster of sensors and communicating over the SIGFOX network, companies are able to collect various sets of data and thus analyse internal systems.

This bridges the gap between machines and business processes to provide the relevant data-based information needed to solve potential problems and optimise manufacturing performance.

Recover stolen vehicles quickly

Car robbers using GSM jammers have no way to hack / jam Sigfox IoT trackers. The trackers will continue to transmit GPS coordinates without interruption, even if the vehicle is stolen. 

In Europe, Sigfox-enabled trackers allow insurance companies to work with security providers and police to recover stolen cars, motorbikes, trucks and commercial vehicles.

Stock management

IoT systems in manufacturing reduce inventory carrying costs and reduce inventory management errors. Integrated sensors and intelligent inventory management are catalysts for improving real-time visibility into inventory systems, warehouses, production runs and distribution centres. 

Beyond that, intelligent inventory management provides manufacturers with actionable, real-time information that can improve raw material allocation, efficient planning, transport logistics and order lead times.

Optimise your processes with Digitalisation

It's time to move to Industry 4.0. Harness the power of data in your manufacturing industry with a variety of connected sensors to monitor metrics like pressure, vibration, temperature, humidity, switches and voltage.

Receive a detailed status of the integrity of the infrastructure installation

Detect damage to the building structure by measuring cracks, extensions or deformations of gauges (sensors) on key structural elements. Constant monitoring can prevent damage by helping engineers to better predict and plan building improvements.

Monitor the supply of emergency sources

With a connected sensor, you can check the charge level of any battery, including electric vehicle batteries. This means energy savings and simple, inexpensive and easy-to-use monitoring.

Monitor vital parameters, leaks and breaks in pipes

Leaking or breached pipes can be extremely dangerous to the public and damage the environment, not to mention the materials involved. A vibrating strain gauge, temperature and pressure sensors placed on your pipes will alert you to a potential breach or leak. Get alerts before the worst happens and prevent disasters.

Radically improve your security

SIGFOX allows business owners to secure any building at low cost and address the main weakness of alarm systems at the same time. Most security alarms are connected via the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), but with GSM jammers now widely available on the market, almost anyone can break in. Sigfox uses radio technology that is resistant to jamming and can help ensure that your alarm system continues to function normally, even if an intruder tries to jam the signal. Sigfox technology is designed for low power consumption, which means that connected presence detectors can operate for months or even years without replacing batteries.

Improve food safety

SIGFOX IoT solutions can help ensure compliance with food safety procedures by accurately monitoring the temperature of food processing and storage facilities. Alerts can be sent in the event of abnormal temperature levels to trigger rapid corrective action.

Safety and security at work

Managing accidents and risks in the workplace remains a major challenge for employers in many sectors. Sensors can also accurately monitor temperature, humidity levels and can detect other environmental conditions that may affect employees. Mechanisms are then put in place to ensure that the data from the site sensors delivers quick and accurate messages to the emergency services in the event of a disaster.
