Asset Monitoring with Beacons, LoRa, Node.js and the IoT Cloud
In the Healthcare it is important to keep track of important assets like machines (Blood Pumps, AEDs, Ultrasound), commodities (wheelchairs, beds) and even high-risk patients. It’s an essential enterprise task that facilitates hardware management, maintenance, regulatory compliance, and security. A asset management solution can save companies time, money, and lots of management headaches. During this presentation I show the audience how we can connect the physical world to the web. Using beacons, sensors and LoRa to monitor and track assets and publish data to the Internet of Things Cloud Service. I demonstrate how, through multiple Node.js gateways, assets are registered, monitored and tracked inside and outside the hospital building.
