The main features of applications include real-time updates on devices’ conditions and data gathered, analysis of the information, accessibility, and security. Many industries benefit from IoT tracking applications that deliver real-time data from various devices. When users can access and check the condition, location, or reports from wireless gateways, sensors, or IoT solutions, at any time it helps ensure the IoT ecosystem works well and take immediate action if any deviations are detected.
The analytical feature of the applications makes it easier to decide exactly what you need to do in order to solve a particular problem. For example, the MeetNow application provides users with detailed analytics on room occupancy so they can plan meeting schedules more efficiently based on the “peak hours”.
Another important feature is accessibility, which means that with these applications, you’ll be able to access all your devices connected to the Internet of Things network, including sensors, gateways, and custom solutions. Applications are simply downloaded to any of your mobile devices, so you can log in to the system and check all the necessary information from any location regardless you are based in the USA, Canada, ASEAN countries, or New Zealand. Besides, the MeetNow application, mentioned earlier, as well as LOCUS application allows assigning different user roles for custom access levels.
As for security, IoT tracking applications are a great way to increase worker security by changing the way they perform their tasks. Using IoT devices can generate terabytes of data, telling managers in real-time exactly what’s going on at a job site. This data can then be used to improve safety measures and other innovative tools. By analyzing this data, IoT tracking applications can help improve safety programs. In fact, they can help companies with early fire detection, and help avoid safety incidents by providing real-time information on the condition of their fleets. This way, managers and employees can make necessary changes to prevent safety incidents and minimize the risks associated with industrial hazards. And since IoT-based applications are becoming more popular, more companies are implementing them to improve safety measures.
