Sensative Joins IoT Network Helium For Smart City Use Cases, Offers LoRaWAN Strips & Yggio

Novel Process Improvement Hardware Receives Frost & Sullivan Award

Sensative joins Helium to become the newest member of the Ecosystem! The Swedish-based business uses the Internet of Things to empower organizations with cutting-edge technologies for cities and the commercial real estate industry. By the end of 2022, Sensative expects to have 10,000 sensors delivering data via The People’s Network, and it has go-to-market plans for a number of new LoRaWAN gadgets in North America and Europe.

Sensative, a prominent hardware and software provider for smart cities and smart buildings, was founded in 2013 as the result of a competition for the development of smart windows with hidden sensors. The company, which won the Frost & Sullivan Award in 2021 for being the most innovative IoT startup in Europe, has great plans to sell Helium-compatible sensors to enterprise partners as well as to directly provide end users an IoT application platform.

Sensative will soon use The People’s Network to assist companies with dramatic service improvements, simplified digitization, increased efficiency and scalability, full data ownership, and scaling of business models.

Yggio Connectivity Process Management Software combines efficiency with low power consumption

Sensative offers two products to their users: Their patented Strips LoRaWAN sensors and their game-changing Digitalization infrastructure Management Systems (DiMS), Yggio.

Strips sensors feature an ultra-slim discreet design, are easy-to-mount, and have low power consumption for extended battery life (up to 10 years).

Yggio acts as an open IoT platform for any smart domain. It provides a unified smart infrastructure for launching, leveraging, and scaling massive IoT solutions, making it service vendor and technology-neutral.

With Strips and Yggio, Sensative has been able to empower companies and entities to successfully implement initiatives for use cases such as smart cities and buildings, connected grids, efficient water and waste distribution, environmentally friendly agriculture, and more.

Enterprise Sensors Boost Return To Work By Highlighting Contamination Risks

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies transitioned to remote working environments in an effort to keep employees safe. As more companies slowly begin to bring their workers back to offices, recent initiatives require many of these companies to be able to record and maintain the cleanliness of working areas.

Normal desk occupancy sensors only report if a desk or work area is occupied or not occupied, without any data on whether or not it has been properly sanitized. However, the Sensative Strips Presence sensor has a unique switch that allows the device to report if a desk has been cleaned or not. Once the work area has been sanitized, the switch can be manually slid back to the starting position, and the sensor will report that the desk is now clean and ready for someone to use it.

In order to send this data via dependable, secure, and scalable private LoRaWAN connectivity, Sensative partnered with Actility and their ThingsPark Enterprise infrastructure in January 2022. As many Helium community members know, Actility was one of the first roaming partners announced on Helium, meaning Sensative and Actility are utilizing the Network’s massive global coverage to send this data and create safer, cleaner working spaces for employees as they return to the office.

Why Helium?

Sensative chose Helium in large part because of the business model that is paving the way for massive, full-scale IoT solutions, with more than 823K Hotspots in over 62K cities around the world.

During their yearly virtual IoT event, “Sense2”, Sensative also introduced several new sensors and solutions that will be powered by The People’s Network. The company launched new IoT sensors for detecting oil-leakage, GPS-trackers, radon sensors, air-quality sensors , and a total of 12 new IoT solutions together with Sensative partners, all available for the Helium Network and its users.
