Protect and Monitor Your Boat With the IoT and Monnit

Monnit wireless boat sensors and remote monitoring

It is easy to figure out why boating is so popular when having the wind in your hair, and the strum of the wake against the hull. It is also easy to feel over-your-head when it comes to maintaining your vessel. That is because boats are a bit of a queer fish in the automotive world, especially if you are a landlubber. Thanks to the Internet of Things, you can become more aware of what is happening with your vessel, whether you are docked or sailing the seas. Most major problems boat owners encounter are the result of a situation that could have been prevented. With Monnit and the Internet of Things, boat owners can monitor their vessels from anywhere at any time, avoiding costly repairs and even theft.

The Internet of Things (IoT):  the network of physical objects (“things”) embedded with sensors, software, electronics, and network connectivity, which enables them to collect and exchange data.

For a long time, the available solutions to monitor boats were too expensive and difficult to use.  This has since changed with Monnit’s affordable remote monitoring solutions, which makes it easy to monitor various aspects of your boat at once, preventing surprises before setting sail and giving you peace of mind. Here are just a few of the common ways you can use Monnit Wireless Sensors with your boat or yacht to improve your sailing experience:

Protect Your Business with Monnit and the “Internet of Things”

Monnit Remote Monitoring Solutions for Businesses

I hate to break it to you, but someone left the back door open and some of your inventory just walked out, the toilet is leaking in the men’s bathroom, and the AC unit just stopped working. It may be unlikely that all of these things will happen at the same time, but any one of these (or more) mishaps can be costly for your company, and it’s reputation. You trust your employees to handle issues as they arise, but while your staff is busy dealing with shoppers, it’s hard for them to see what’s going on in other areas of the store. Simple little issues can add up, so it’s important to prevent financial surprises when you can.

Problems Facing Business Management

Business owners of all types and sizes have experienced unexpected problems before. Some of these problems may affect your customer’s and employees’ experiences or safety, and others may affect your building, inventory or assets. Maybe it’s too hot in your building since your HVAC system broke down; a storage shelf is holding more weight  than it can contain and could collapse soon; the bathroom is beginning to flood, and the surrounding areas are now slippery and may be ruining merchandise.

In the past, these problems were difficult to predict. If you didn’t hire expensive routine maintenance some of these problems were inevitable. Not only is calendar maintenance often ineffective, but problems can arise at any time between inspections. These problems have become so common for many business owners that they have often become complacent, considering these variable costs as mandatory. Suddenly, things have changed thanks to the Internet of Things! read more
