• New gateway device helps customers unlock smart sensor data

    Pressac Communications, a leading manufacturer of smart building technology, has unveiled a new gateway device which makes it easier than ever to get sensor data into the cloud - ready for use wherever its needed.

    The new device means that information on everything from room occupancy to temperature can feed easily into software or IoT platforms.

    The Gateway works by turning the data gathered by the sensors into MQTT format, the most commonly used language for IoT devices. The data is then securely available locally or via the cloud.

    Jamie Burbidge, Digital Solutions - Product Manager at Pressac, said: “Before we introduced this device our customers would often be concerned about how to get the data out of their smart sensors and into a format that worked for them.

    “They would usually need to purchase an additional piece of equipment from another manufacturer to get the data where they needed it. Our Gateway device eliminates the need for this by taking the data and converting it in to MQTT.

    “The information can then be sent straight to popular platforms like IBM Watson or Microsoft Azure, giving you instant access to data about your buildings

    “It’s a simpler, cost-effective way for our customers to unlock sensor data and means they can get everything they need to do this all in one place.”

    The Gateway can be connected via a wired ethernet cable, or wirelessly via WiF or LTE (4G), meaning it can be kept off main IT networks if necessary.

    It comes with ready-made connections to leading platforms, such as Microsoft Azure and IBM Watson, with future connections planned for Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud IoT.

    It will be on display at Pressac’s stand at The Facilities Show at the ExCel in London from June 18-20. The event is the world’s largest Facilities Management show and visitors will have the chance to talk to the Pressac team about the Gateway as well as their other products.

    Jamie said: “We’re looking forward to showing people how they could transform the use of buildings using our smart sensor technology.

    “If you’re going to the show please do come and say hi. We’ll be on stand FM5874.
