Reliable security uptime
Most residential security alarms are connected via the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) to a central alerting system, but with GSM jammers now widely available on the Internet, burglar intrusion is much too easy. Sigfox provides back-up connectivity to ensure alarms are transmitted to security companies if the primary GSM is jammed.
Connected Smoke Detectors:
Reliable uptime and fire alerts
Smoke detectors are a critical life-saving device that must remain operational in case of a fire. IoT-connected smoke detectors transmit functional information through the Sigfox network and can send real-time alerts. Alerts can be sent to property owners as phone calls, SMS messages or emails to notify smoke detector malfunction or detection of smoke. With a reliable smoke detector and a solution for improved reaction in the event of fire, firerelated insurance claims can be reduced.
Realtime remote water leak notification
Thermic flow solutions detect water leaks anywhere in the domestic plumbing system. In the event of a leak, an alert is sent immediately to the owner’s phone or email. This service can be packaged with a repair service to ensure peace of mind. Homeowners can now monitor their homes while they are away without anxiety or stress.
Recover stolen vehicles
Car thieves who use GSM jammers have met their match with Sigfox IoT trackers. Because Sigfox uses radio signals that can’t be jammed, the trackers will continue to transmit GPS coordinates without interruption, even if the vehicle is stolen.
Sigfox-enabled trackers allow insurance companies to work with security providers and police to recover stolen cars, motorcycles, lorries, utility vehicles, bicycles and just about anything with wheels. IoT tracking solutions have positive financial implications for insurance companies and offset the cost of customer premiums.
