Watch Whisker.IO In Action

We are in the process of putting Yukon, OK on the IoT map by putting Sensor Blocks all over the city. We are making the sensors public so you can watch them at work. Come see how flexible, powerful, and easy to use Whisker.IO is.

Smart Water Metering

Connecting water meters to the Internet of Things can be one of the most challenging applications; meters are hard to get to, often buried under ground, and must be powered from batteries due to the lack of available power.

Whisker.IO is perfect for this application. Our Water Meter SensorBlock can interface to popular encoded and pulse meters, and can be configured to report consumption, leak detection, line break, tamper indication, and more. Since Whisker.IO is a two-way system, our SensorBlock can be connected to an external valve for remote shutoff or remote flow-rate limiting.

Our SensorBlock can communicate for miles (meter mounted above ground) and operate for 20 years from 4xAA batteries, making it the perfect smart water metering solution. Consumption readings can be sent directly to your billing software via our programmable Whisker.IO gateway.

Water metering is one of the key applications we had in mind when we designed Whisker.IO. We would love to talk to you about how you can integrate Whisker.IO into your water smart meter program.

Whisker.IO is also a great choice for monitoring gas and electric meters, propane and fuel oil tanks, etc.

Freezer Monitor

Making sure that perishable food items are always maintained at the proper temperatures and environmental conditions is critical to ensuring public health and maximizing profit. Our wireless sensors are very low cost can communicate over very long distances, allowing you to monitor temperature and relative humidity in all of your cold storage locations, including restaurant freezers, walk-in refrigerators and even food warmers. Temperature and humidity readings can be recorded as often as every 5 minutes and stored in the cloud.

With Whiker.IO, you no longer need to have employees regularly check temperature readings to ensure proper conditions. Using our mobile application, you can view current and historical readings whenever you like. Our gateways are smart and can push daily reports and even text you when the temperature goes too high or too low, eliminating the need to have employees manually check temperatures on a schedule.

Our sensors can also monitor light level and two external contact inputs, so you can know when a door is left open or a light bulb is out.

Security

Whisker.IO SensorBlocks can communicate over miles of distance, operate for years from off-the-shelf alkaline batteries, and monitor everything from light levels, to motion, to ambient pressure. The combination of long range and long battery life make Whisker.IO SensorBlocks perfect for security applications.

SensorBlocks can be configured to monitor temperature, humidity, doors opening and closing, light levels, PIR motion, movement (in 3 dimensions), shock, ambient pressure, and more. Our Tracker SensorBlock has on-board accelerometer and GPS tracking; put one on your trailer or in your RV and know instantly when it starts to move and where it is at.

For security applications, our gateways can be configured to send text and email alerts when user defined conditions are met. Sensor data from multiple sensors can be combined with other conditions such as time of day and user defined operating modes to create complex alerts tailored to match your needs.

Long Range Wireless IoT

Whisker.IO is an enterprise grade wireless IoT plaform that can monitor, control, and automate anything from up to 4 miles away (20 miles with sufficient antenna height). Our Gateways and battery-powered Sensor Blocks use LoRa technology from SemTech to communicate over unprecidented distances, making it the only flexible wireless IoT platform suitable for venues, campuses, farms, airports, or any application where long range and battery life are important.

Low-Cost Gateways

The Whisker.IO Gateway connects Sensor Blocks to your enterprise via the Internet. These cost-effective devices can be equipped for inside and outdoor use and have many optional features including Nema 4 enclosure, battery back-up, PoE, Ethernet/WiFi/2G/3G communications, and more. They are plug and play, self-contained, and can be installed in a matter of minutes.

Flexible Sensors

Sensor Blocks are the eyes and ears of the Whisker.IO platform. They can sense and control the world around them using a combination of analog and digital inputs and outputs; in fact, we have a sensor for almost any application including environmental, process, water metering, telematics, and more. Gathering big data on an entrprise scale is a piece of cake with Whisker.IO.

Location Aware

Adding new sensors is easy and every sensor is geo-located at installation. Sensor can even be equipped with an optional GPS receiver, allowing them to determine their location. Put a GPS enabled Sensor Block on anything you want to track and you can watch it move with our app. Or, if you are concerned about theft, you can configure an alert to notify you when your sensor moves, allowing you to track it and take action.

User Defined Alerts

Whisker.IO Gateways can be configured to notify one or more contacts (email, SMS, or voice call) when a user defined event occurs. Alerts are very flexible. They can notify individuals and groups and they can be configured to require acknowledgement. Alerts can be sent based on an event or at a set time of day, so they can be used for both daily and exception reporting, which makes them great for applications like oil and gas well monitoring.

Free Apps

The free Whisker.IO App is available for Windows and Android (iPhone coming soon) and allows you to configure alerts, add and remove sensors and gateways, interact with individual sensor blocks and a whole lot more. Because the app works directly with our gateways, no cloud server is required, so you are always in control of your private information and data.

In addition, we offer .NET/Mono APIs that can be used to develop custom desktop and mobile client applications.

Customization and Application Development Services

We can customize a Sensor Block to fit your needs or we can design a vertical application for you from scratch. Contact us to find out how we can help you get on the IoT today.
