The SmartConnect Network
Robust and Reliable
Industrial construction locations such as oil and gas refineries are made of metal, concrete, noise, and grit. The SmartConnect solution can stand up to the heavy demands of short term construction projects because of a capable network leveraging several unique technologies.
Miles of Coverage – Forget line of site and limited coverage. The onboard LoRa chip set sends data over miles of terrain and through dense structures. SmartConnect’s exclusive communications protocol increases data reliability and reporting rates.
Light Infrastructure – In its most simple form, the SmartConnect network requires only one* SmartConnect gateway using LoRa for data reporting and application use. The gateway can be positioned anywhere at the location to provide maximum coverage. On-site network access is also not required; gateways connect via cellular modules.
Two Way Communication – Near-real-time safety and awareness for every Smart Badge wearer. The immediate nature of the SmartConnect network becomes apparent during zone detection, muster alerts, and man down alerts. Not only is the badge wearer made aware of a situation almost instantly, they can respond to create a complete record of the event.
Badge to Badge and Mesh Networks – The SmartConnect network is both strong and flexible. SmartConnect badges can communicate with each other via LoRa 2.4 GHz, allowing for direct badge-to-badge messaging (as used in the proximity detection feature) and badge mesh networks.
*Actual number depends on location area and number of Smart Badges.
