Narrowband IoT Sensors

Narrowband sensors are single-purpose devices that can be used to monitor environmental conditions in server rooms, data centres and remote locations for temperature, humidity, water leakage, power, voltage and current values. Narrowband NB series products use sim-based Narrowband communication and can be monitored using the HWG-Cloud or SensDesk remote monitoring portals. NB series devices have a battery life of 3years. DIN rail and rack mount models are also available.

What is Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT)

Narrowband is a standards-based low power wide area (LPWA) technology used to connect a wide range of IoT devices and corresponding services. Using narrowband connectivity significantly improves device power consumption, system capacity and spectrum efficiency. The low power consumption of Narrowband devices allows for the use of battery power and offers long duration battery life from 2years or more. Narrowband is similar to GSM/GPRS mobile communications and benefits from all the security and privacy features of mobile networks, including support for user identity confidentiality, entity authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, and mobile equipment identification. Narrowband connectivity is ideal for indoor, remote and rural device monitoring.

Typical Applications for Narrowband NB-IoT Sensors

Narrowband suits applications where it can be costly and difficult to deploy a broadband network over a wide area for multiple applications. Typical applications can include:

  • Temperature and Humidity monitoring on remote sites
  • Smart electricity, gas and water meter data connection and monitoring
  • Public sector infrastructure device communication – car park metering, street lighting, waste collections and temporary traffic lights
  • Remote building security access and intrusion prevention
  • Water leakage and humidity level monitoring on remote sites

There are many applications for the technology. Please contact us to discuss a specific Narrowband IoT application.

Remote Monitoring Cloud Portals

Narrowband environment monitoring devices from Server Room Environments can be monitored and controlled through the HW Cloud or SensDesk portals.
