Robbery Prevention Solution with TEKTELIC VIVID Sensors
During the last few years, there is a big increase in the number of devices connected to the Internet. All these devices are part of the Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure that allows us to collect information from all kinds of mediums, communicate and exchange data among devices without a need for any human intervention.
Today Smart Home is a significant part of IoT that allows people to control different aspects of their lives remotely using the network of smart devices and sensors. One of the most important factors that we usually consider when talking about Smart Home is Security.
Our Partner, IVU Softwareentwicklung GmbH (https://www.ivugmbh.de) is a software development company focused on smart metering for utility companies and metering service providers in Germany. Since 2016 a customizable LoRaWAN® network and application server is part of IVU’s portfolio including +100 supported IoT devices. IVU offers a full service around the planning and establishment of a LoRaWAN® infrastructure including provisioning of gateways and sensor devices as well as integration via APIs into backend systems and visualization platforms.
Initially, home security systems meant having an alarm that went off when someone intruded on a building, but with the development of the Internet of Things, a smart secure home can do much more than that.
Therefore, the main challenge for the IVU Softwareentwicklung GmbH company is to develop a system that can alert the owner and others of an intruder by sending a notification to their smartphones. The owner will also be able to turn off or start the alarm remotely using only their smartphone. This system will help users secure their homes, offices, stores, and apartments by placing the system on doors or windows and monitoring activity through their smartphones.
