In a world of connected devices, there are many applications that are taking advantage of the Internet of Things. The construction industry is getting involved in IoT in different ways, they realize that these Connected Devices Solutions can bring their business into the 21st century with optimized connected devices communication.
The possibilities of connecting any machine, system, device or site have become appealing to the Construction Industries for many reasons.
Remote operations are one of the biggest attractions for this industry, having the ability to have machines to operate in remote hazardous situations like polluted work sites is a valuable asset to preventing human interaction with potentially toxic sites. Also, the ability to remotely track and monitor these sites can provide invaluable advantages compared to sites that don’t have connected solutions, one example is the tracking of employees hours can be logged automatically to make sure they are not working too much overtime, which can create safety issues for the site.
On-site Remote IoT Gateways are providing great insights into the operations of the construction site. BlueApp and it’s software and hardware are great ways to increase productivity and provide the necessary insights. The gateways provide communication locally and remotely, with a headless gateway and a display gateway to choose from. These Gateways are Wifi and Cellular gateways that can be used by employees to track people that are on-site to the batteries charging levels for the tools on the site, also asset tracking of these tools from site to site. With these gateway and dashboard solutions, this helps the construction team with tracking the status of the equipment for repair or replacement when functioning poorly.
Some construction sites are installing Sensors to monitor the new buildings for climate and humidity change and how it’s affecting the building, sensors can also track the building’s energy efficiency over time, and alerting the maintenance team of inefficiencies of energy when they occur. Smart Construction sites are adding these sensors for future outlooks on the buildings for better, smarter preventative maintenance of the building which will give longer life to these building and provide insights to the construction crew to build better buildings.
Construction Tool Manufacturers are adding Bluetooth Technology to their products, which provides tools to communicate with sensors on work site for better performance to work smarter, not only do these tools report simple things like battery levels, but they can take in data and send it to a dashboard like blueapp.io that can present that data for later analysis.
The Internet of Things and connected devices saves time and money fo construction industry with preventative tool and machine maintenance, altering the operators of the machine and tool heath, alerting the construction site on fuel consumption and another energy usage of a single site or a single operation is making a difference in the construction industry by saving time and money.
By having a telematics on a construction site to monitor operating conditions, performance levels and/or physical states are making the construction industry smarter.
Vensi’s BlueApp Solutions is a great way to get the remote connectivity and device connectivity to make a smarter construction site, It’s not only simple to integrate but gives users all of the features they want and need.
While others are still trying to figure out the Internet of Things, BlueApp is on the cutting edge of the Internet of Things technology and Connected Devices.
