Internet of Things (IOT) Solutions

Internet_of_Things__IOT__Solutions.jpg

Field Viewers motto is to connecting every smart & intelligent device together by providing the IoT solutions.

The IoT is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as "connected devices" and "smart devices"), buildings and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.

The IoT allows objects to be sensed and/or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit

 

Automatic Meter Reading 

Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from Energy meter and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing

Street & Highway Light Automation

Street___Highway_Light_Automation.jpg

Street Lighting

Street lighting management needs to be an integral part of a Smart City strategy, as they are typically one of the largest consumers of energy and represent on average one-third to one-half of a city or town’s energy costs. In recent years, many cities, towns, and municipalities have migrated to LED or Solar-based LED lights, and have enjoyed significant energy savings; however, there are many more savings to be achieved through the implementation of intelligent wireless controllers.

 

Industrial Lighting

In large industrial, manufacturing and warehouse operations, employee safety is paramount; however, there are often times or locations in a facility that do not require 100% lighting. Field Viewers intelligent gateway wireless controllers with advanced Dimming capabilities allow facilities managers to easily group, schedule and dim or turn lights On/Off based on the lighting needs in an area.

 

The street lighting solution gives you the capability to a remote monitor, and control street lights, in a fail-proof way. The solution has Internet connectivity in order to upload data to a cloud application, to enable remote monitoring. The data can be accessed from smartphones as well. The solution allows you to schedule the different operations of light, according to time of day. This helps in minimizing human interference with daily operations. The solution maintains historical data in order to help you make informed business decisions based on consumption patterns.
