Remote monitoring has become increasingly popular in recent years as restoration and disaster cleanup businesses seek to improve efficiency and reduce overall costs. By setting up remote monitoring, you can measure your job data 24/7 from anywhere, allowing you to make informed decisions about each job.
However, to effectively set up remote monitoring, you’ll need to have the right equipment in place. Here are three essential pieces of equipment you’ll need to consider when setting up remote monitoring for your business.
1 | Wireless Thermos Hygrometer
If you’re in the disaster cleanup industry, you know this piece of equipment well. A thermo hygrometer is a device that measures temperature and humidity. This is an essential piece of equipment for not only remote monitoring, but for any restoration job. A wireless thermos hygrometer, like the one pictured below, can provide accurate readings through phone or other device.
Imagine being able to pull the temperature and humidity readings at any time in any location. Doing so will save you time and money.
2| Wireless Moisture Meter
A wireless moisture meter is a device that measures the moisture content of various materials, such as wood, drywall, or concrete. This is an important piece of equipment for remote monitoring because it allows you to monitor the moisture levels of each job, which can be crucial for a variety of reasons.
For example, if you’re running a flood recovery job, you’ll want to ensure that the moisture levels in your materials are within an acceptable range to ensure that your projects are completed to the highest standard.
3| Wi-Fi Base Station
A Wi-Fi Base station is critical to any remote monitoring setup. This is a device that allows you to set up a wireless network on your job site. This is an essential piece of equipment for remote monitoring because it enables you to connect your sensors and devices to the internet, allowing you to access and monitor them remotely. There are several different types of Wi-Fi base stations available, so it’s important to choose one that meets your specific needs.
Why You Should Always Run On Wi-Fi, Not Bluetooth
Most remote monitoring systems run off Bluetooth instead of connecting to a dedicated wi-fi station. Here’s why we don’t recommend that…
Wi-Fi Base Station has a longer range than Bluetooth which means you can connect and monitor your sensors and devices from a greater distance (anywhere in the world!). This is particularly useful if you have a large job site or if you need to monitor multiple locations.
With bluetooth, you may experience delays in data transmission – A Wi-Fi base station allows you to connect and monitor your sensors and devices in real-time, which is essential for effective remote monitoring. With a Bluetooth-based system, you may experience delays in the data transmission, which can make it difficult to make timely decisions about your business. With a Wi-Fi base station, you’ll be able to access and analyze your data in real-time, allowing you to make informed decisions and take immediate action if necessary.
