Novaerus Internet of Things Sensor Portal

Background

To monitor and demonstrate the effectiveness of its air purifying units, Novaerus developed a complementary sensor product. These sensors are installed along with Novaerus's plasma devices and they monitor air quality (and other data), messaging proximate plasma units when quality falls, so the air purifiers will increase power. Novaerus required an IOT solution which would record all the measurements made by its sensors, and would provide real time and historic visualisations of all metrics collected.

Solution

Dovetail worked closely with Novaerus's embedded systems team to define protocols and transmission mechanisms. We built custom listeners to store and aggregate data in a time-series database (InfluxDB) on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

We also designed user-friendly mobile-compatible user-interfaces and developed secure end-user and internal administration applications for visualisation of real-time, historic and geo-based data (C#, .Net, Angular).

Outcome

The system has met with an overwhelmingly positive response from Novaerus's customers, employees and partners. Dovetail continues to be Novaerus's smart-technology partner as the system develops.
