Sewage management is a step ahead of sewage treatment. It is a full cycle of responsible action from collecting the sewage (or wastewater) into discharging it back to nature in the form of effluent. It is worth noting that there are six fundamental elements in running thorough sewage management: the source of sewage, on-site processing, collection of sewage, treatment of sewage, and the disposal of treated sewage. Proper sewage management allows companies (or cities) to customize users sewage treatment project(s) to cover the specific conditions on board.
Anti-theft systems sensors is an automation technology incorporated in a personal security device. The purpose of the device is to protect valuables such as vehicles and personal property like wallets, phones, and jewelry. Locks and keys, RFID tags, and GPS locators are some models of the device. Generally, people consider users budget span, including users financial cost ratio, the threshold for theft, and the ease of use of the device before deciding to purchase one.
As the global demand for the solar panel is showing positive growth over the last decade, the technology to integrate digital communications, and sophisticated control strategies into the existing electricity grid has also been vastly advanced and refined over time. Wireless remote monitoring and control system is the current exciting direction to go to, as the coordination of sensing and control of the solar photovoltaic distributed generator is most effectively managed by using a wireless sensor network. It opens up the possibility to make more complex maintenance, such as predictive maintenance, which comprises localization and definition of related faults. Furthermore, the demand for using a wireless sensor network of the solar panel systems is being driven by the user’s need for efficiency. The acknowledged needs are to reduce costs associated with remote site visits, receive quick notification and act to eliminate power interruptions at a site, facilitate troubleshooting, program custom settings off-site, as well as the ability to update firmware remotely.
There are two primary computer-based control systems to handle remote monitoring and supervisory control over sensitive processes within many critical infrastructures and industries: SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems). SCADA system is used to monitor and control a plant or equipment in industries such as telecommunications, water and waste control, energy, oil and gas refining, and transportation. It encompasses data transfer between a SCADA central host computer and a number of Remote Terminal Units (RTU) and/or Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and the central host and the operator terminals. It opens up an opportunity to efficiently monitor and control the plant operation remotely. Furthermore, the business owner may also be able to obtain the key benefits of optimizing the time spent by streamlining all the processes involved in the supervision of various business processes, delegating work efficiently, as well as maximizing users ROI.
Air quality monitoring is an operation to obtain a quantitative measurement of atmospheric substances concentration. This action is performed by citizens, regulatory agencies, and researchers. It does, however, have inevitable challenges as it requires the effective integration of multiple environmental data sources. Specialized observation equipment and tools to assess air sampling by thorough bio monitoring measurement techniques are particularly required to overcome these challenges.
The collective data points gathered along with the environment and organism health effects associated with exposure to the monitored levels will, in turn, construct the interpretation of ambient air monitoring. Once it reveals concentrations of multiple chemical compounds, a unique “chemical fingerprint” of a particular air pollution source – which can be both naturally occurring and anthropogenic – may appear from the analysis of the data.
The main objective of having remote monitoring and control of street light is energy saving. Many countries are using computer-based automatic monitoring for this intelligent control system. There are indeed various ways of implementing this system nationwide. Two of them which widely used abroad are PLC-based networking method, and GSM short message control mode. The application of this intelligent lighting control system allows cities to lower users electricity cost, reducing the needs of labor as well as its human error consequences, and provide better safety feels to society.
Remote watering technology is another inspiring integration of IoT in daily life. This technology – with its unique, distinctive, case-by-case implementations – offers visionary solutions to overcome various challenges, issues, and limitations. This particular technology aims to solve water supply, consumption, and quality issues, humidity issue, as well as energy consumption challenge.
Remote monitoring and control of heating and cooling systems is a refinement of the existing HVAC (Heating Ventilating and Air-Conditioning) technology. Since theirs very first production in the 1980s, the manufacturers of HVAC aim to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality for users customers. The current integration with IoT making it possible to have remote control of all home energy monitors over the internet, incorporating a simple and friendly user interface.
