SMART Digital Sensors
The Internet of Things, or IoT, is shaping the way we live our lives and helping us get a better insight into how things work around us.
One of the most important uses of IoT is environmental monitoring, or the use of advanced sensor devices and other control systems to keep products from being compromised due to environmental vulnerabilities.
Setting up an IoT monitoring platform can help companies improve their manufacturing efficiency while promoting product safety and consumer trust. Continuous quality monitoring and proper administration of connected devices and assets are essential to properly manage environments.
These procedures can assist in ensuring that systems run smoothly and meet safety requirements.
When it comes to IoT devices, an automated monitoring solution can help ensure that remotely situated and unsupervised equipment can function by itself without human intervention. This eliminates the need for IT teams to physically inspect devices on a regular basis or do manual data monitoring and logging.
Furthermore, utilizing a monitoring software that automates the regulatory compliance process can bring cost-saving benefits and helps businesses avoid regulatory fines.
In the healthcare and pharmaceutical and research sectors, deploying IoT real-time monitoring software such as Sonicu can help ensure that valuable, perishable assets – whether they are in development, in storage, or while in transit – are protected at all times, and that cold chain integrity is maintained.
When selecting a monitoring solution, it is suggested to pick one that offers a secure cloud-based platform for monitoring all of your cold storage applications within a facility or throughout an entire network. In addition, a monitoring solution should be fully compliant with regulatory requirements to help you create company value, reduce costs, and avoid regulatory penalties.
Sonicu can help you protect critical assets by automating manual data logging, which is prone to human data input errors, neglect, and fraudulent reporting. Also, by using an automated system, you can have 24/7 visibility and web-based access to all monitored locations.
You can also obtain data-driven insights to deliver meaningful customer experiences and support your business objectives.
With Sonicu’s powerful, flexible and intuitive software platform, users will benefit from asset protection, compliance automation and operational efficiency. That translates to knowing your most sensitive assets will be monitored and protected from mishaps and human error and always being ready for a surprise Joint Commission audit.
It also means freeing up your staff from the inefficient exercise of manually logging temperatures throughout your facility.
An IoT monitoring software tool can track the behavior and performance of IoT devices within an organization. Ideally, an IoT monitoring tool should have an alerting system to notify the designated persons about problems and issues in real time so that appropriate, corrective steps can be taken immediately.
For industries such as hospitals, pharmaceuticals, life sciences, and other segments where temperature monitoring is crucial, the implementation of IoT monitoring can help address some of the operational challenges. IoT monitoring also allows organizations to provide a better customer experience and high-quality patient care.
An IoT dashboard is a web-based software tool within an IoT platform that uses graphs, charts, and other user interface components so you can track and interact with different devices within your ecosystem.
An IoT dashboard can be used to organize, present, and manage data from numerous connected devices in your network. Generally speaking, IoT dashboards provide users with easy-to-read data at a glance for remote monitoring of archived and live IoT data streams.
By using an IoT monitoring dashboard, you can observe and analyze the performance and health of installed IoT devices in a single platform through data visualization. An IoT monitoring dashboard can provide you with important data metrics, including performance and security issues, device health, and preventative maintenance to maximize equipment lifespan and productivity.
You can also use an IoT dashboard template, which can be customized according to your specifications.
As an IoT monitoring platform, Sonicu allows you to monitor and measure any of your legacy server-based systems, including machines, devices, location, assets, and other important performance indicators, by utilizing the SoniCloud dashboard.

IoT Platform Vendors
There are various top IoT platform vendors to choose from depending on the needs and requirements of your organization. Here are some of them:
Organizations may refer to various IoT platforms examples to get ideas on how to implement an IoT monitoring system project. For example, a patient health monitoring system project allows health care practitioners or care providers to automate the process of monitoring patient health status and provide the best care possible.
An IoT-based smart healthcare system can help reduce hospital visits and patient meetings with healthcare providers. The system can present patient data in a visualized format for faster decision-making and reduce the variability of care. Hospitals may integrate a patient health monitoring system into their IT environment for better clinical outcomes and to help drive revenue.
A smart health monitoring system enables users to remotely observe a steady stream of vital medical parameters, such as patient heart rate, oxygen level and temperature, from monitors and medical devices. Some patient health monitoring systems might also be equipped with sensors for detecting falls and patient sleep patterns. Remote patient monitoring requires a stable internet connection in both the patient side and the healthcare providers in order to collect real-time data and measure the parameters at regular intervals.
Through a wireless detection system, critical patient data is sent to the server in the cloud and transmitted to any connected device. The cloud platform also enables data storage, which makes it possible to retrieve previous measurements for future reference.
If the system detects any variations from standard values in a patient's vital signs, it sends an alert signal to doctors or close contact care providers, who can then take the appropriate action. A smart health monitoring system is particularly useful for patients who live in rural areas or in remote locations and do not have immediate access to medical facilities and medical care.
While IoT monitoring devices are available in both free and paid versions, some free versions may have poorly designed features with low-quality or confusing interfaces. Other high-quality monitoring devices with more sophisticated components may come at a steep price.
Connection security is one important thing to look for in IoT device monitoring software. For example, when sending data to the cloud, Sonicus Virtual Private Network on Verizon's cellular platform eliminates security issues.
Ideally, IoT monitoring devices and IoT cloud platforms should allow for remote monitoring and enable you to manage data in one central location. Organizations might benefit from partnering with an IoT technology provider such as Sonicu which specializes in remote wireless monitoring
