Internet of Things for Business: Monitoring and Surveillance function




Internet of Things is a neologism referring to the extension of the Internet to the world of objects and places. Things, objects and instruments acquire intelligence, the ability to collect information and communicate it.


The Internet of Things is a real new network because it creates previously unimaginable perspectives, in which objects take an active role thanks to the fact of being online and sending and receiving data.


The benefits of implementation with IoT technologies can be traced back to fields of application in areas such as manufacturing, industrial, engineering, healthcare and services, IoT technologies bring significant benefits, innovation and cost reduction, reduced risks and inactivity.


One of the main types of IoT implementation concerns monitoring functions, the added value of the Internet of Things lies in the ability to collect large amounts of data from remote objects. Connected to this area is surveillance and security, once you distribute smart objects connected to the network, these can become sources of information for control systems.


If we consider monitoring as an operation carried out not thanks to the fact that the objects themselves become smart but through the distribution of sensors, it opens the way to other types of applications, among the most popular are those that are part of the optimization of the entire supply chain: in particular in the physical tracking of assets (inventory management, warehouse management) and vehicles (fleet management). 


The IoT to know the production capacity of the entire factory and several factories of the same Group and to compare the production efficiency of each factory.
