TALIS Group Chooses SIGFOX Internet of Things Network for Smart-City Fire Hydrant Monitoring Solution
Apr 16 15
TALIS and SIGFOX announced that TALIS will use the SIGFOX network in its new smart-city fire hydrant monitoring solution. Called COPERNIC, the solution allows water utility officials and companies to monitor the status of thousands of fire hydrants 24/7 to assure proper functioning and protect against water theft. It provides real-time alerts when the fire hydrants are being used, along with estimates of volume drawn, data on hydrant functioning and other information that supports total network efficiency. COPERNIC allows real-time monitoring of fire hydrants by time-stamping all data related to hydrant functioning. An electronic module installed on the hydrant sends SMS or email alerts via the SIGFOX network when the hydrant is being opened, closed, tampered with or is not functioning properly. In addition, all data are instantly available on a web portal, and a mobile app for smartphones and tablets is available to read data and receive alerts in the field. COPERNIC was developed by the TALIS Group unit, BAYARD in Meyzieu, France, which specializes in fire and pipe-protection systems, gates, water treatment and butterfly valves, fluid control, joint connectors for pipelines and pipe connections. BAYARD has applied for a patent for COPERNIC. IGFOX’s cellular, ultra-narrowband (UNB) network has been exclusively designed for small messages that will meet the needs of the vast majority of objects connected to the IoT. By providing economical, energy-efficient two-way transmission of data, SIGFOX is lowering barriers to wide implementation of IoT and M2M solutions, and greatly extending the battery and service life of connected devices. COPERNIC runs on lithium batteries that have an estimated lifetime of 10 years.
