Water Monitoring

Solution – DeviceLynk & Libelium Smart Water Monitoring

DeviceLynk creates Actionable Intelligence for the water industry – providing water companies an easy-to-deploy system, with real-time visibility into operations, and enabling users to quickly determine when & where action is needed. This insight allows organizations to achieve new levels of reliability, productivity, and quality – while reducing costs and saving time through improved resource utilization.

For those looking to monitor remote assets, with limited to no existing infrastructure, DeviceLynk and Libelium have partnered to create an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solution for water quality monitoring, capable of transforming Libelium Smart Water sensor data into Actionable Intelligence in 3 easy steps:

  • Sensors are deployed into the field
  • Data is automatically collected and sent to the cloud by the DeviceLynk Agent embedded within Libelium’s Meshlium IoT Gateway
  • Decision makers access DeviceLynk’s cloud-based Actionable Intelligence Dashboards

New sensor locations are quickly and easily added to the system with no coding or engineering required. Simply install the sensors at your desired location, type a serial number into DeviceLynk.com, and immediately begin collecting, storing and visualizing water quality information. Start with DeviceLynk’s Water Quality application dashboards, or build your own from a library of over 100 gadgets.

DeviceLynk automatically monitors your data for preset conditions, and sends notifications by e-mail or SMS when action needs to be taken. The DeviceLynk and Libelium Smart Water Monitoring application is a simple, cost effective Industrial IoT solution.
