Noise Pollution – Noise Monitoring Systems with Industrial IoT Sensors for Decibel Sound Levels and CH4 / Methane Gas

Noise Pollution – What do You think it is?

According to the USA Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), over 20 million workers are exposed to noise that can be damaging while they’re working.

Each year, businesses pay millions of $ / dollars in penalties because they’re not protecting their employees from high decibel loud noises.

These are extreme cases where noise levels are really loud. However, being in any kind of noisy environment can be distracting and unhealthy.

Spider web labyrinth might help reduce noise pollution in the future according to this article. And airplane noise regulations mean planes should get quieter. Noise pollution is a big focus in Africa and India, even in ‘silence zones‘.

But how do you cost-effectively monitor noise today?

Is there a quick and easy way to install sound / noise monitoring devices and equipment?

Take a gander at the photos to see noise monitoring systems that use IoT devices to measure decibels. These solar powered systems send regular noise sensor measurements to Tools.Valarm.net for your database management, analytics, graphing, mapping, and alerting.

  • Temperature
  • Humidity

  • Wind Direction
  • Precipitation & Rain Water Levels
  • CH4 / Methane Gas for Air Quality

What does your organization need to start building and setting up your infrastructure for Industrial IoT and remote monitoring systems?

First things first. Even with remote monitoring, sensor telemetry, and Industrial IoT.

And the 1st question usually is –

“What would you like to know about your business environment that you currently do NOT know, or find that information costly, slow, or dangerous to acquire?”

In response to that question above, organizations and businesses start saying –

“Can you monitor … X, Y, AND Z?!?”

The answer is always yes. And it is always, tremendously cost-effective compared to your current situation. Today, you can literally Monitor Anything, Anywhere!

How does your organization get started with Remote Monitoring and Industrial IoT?

valarm-tank-monitoring-solar-wifi-cost-effective-agrx-tanks-sensors-valarm-tools-cloud-0-1There are 2 key things to know from the beginning about the location of your remote monitoring deployment:

  1. Your power source
  2. Internet availability

Now how about those power sources?

Is there standard wall mains power, like 110V in the U.S., available to plug into?

Or will you need solar panels? If you need solar power, then how sunny is your location throughout the year? This will tell you what wattage and size of solar panels you’ll need. It’ll also determine the size and juice you’ll need for your back up batteries.

And how do you connect your industrial IoT sensors FOR REMOTE MONITORING?

How will the remote sensor monitoring information get sent to Industrial IoT Cloud Tools? If there’s no connection to the internet then you’re not going to be doing any Industrial IoT sensor telemetry.

Fortunately, the internet is available just about anywhere these days. So which internet connectivity is most cost-effective for you?

industrial-iot-remote-monitoring-sensor-telemetry-tools-valarm-net-water-air-quality-sensorsYour remote monitoring deployments might be stationary like those that monitor flood warning systems or water wells.

If you’re monitoring assets that aren’t going anywhere fast, then plain ol’ WiFi or ethernet will provide you with cost savings over satellite or GSM mobile cell networks.

If the assets you need to monitor are mobile, like vehicles, then mobile cell network connectivity will likely be your best bet.

Hope that gets you, your teams, and your organizations started with Industrial IoT and remote sensor monitoring. It’s quicker, easier, and more cost-effective than you think.
