IoT Solutions for Smart City | Internet of Things Case Study
There were several challenges faced: It is challenging to build an appliance that can withstand a wide range of voltage fluctuations from as low at 90v to as high as 320v. Since the device would be installed in remote locations, its resilience was of paramount importance. The device would have to deal with poor network coverage and have the ability to store and re-transmit data if networks were not available, which is often the case in rural India. The device could store up to 30 days of data.

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
Sheltrex has leveraged Altizon’s IoT Platform – Datonis® as their sensor data backbone for their smart cities and a perfect Internet of Things platform.
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
Altizon’s Smart City IoT Platform & Solutions worked with the customer to build two connected appliances in Phase 1. A connected meter that would sit on the meter panel and accurately measure all metrics on power consumption and power quality and securely transmit that data to Datonis®. The customer provided custom mobile applications to homeowners, built using the Datonis® Application API. These applications would allow customers to view their utility consumption, set threshold alerts and notifications, control devices and pay their bills directly from the mobile app.
