Smithers Purslow now offers a breakthrough in monitoring services by combining wireless sensors with mobile telephony.
This unique combination provides significantly enhanced property monitoring, allowing 24/7 data collection over a secure, managed intranet. Installation of the sensors is made as simple as possible using wireless technology. The sensor units are battery powered and only require screw fixing in the pre-determined locations. The captured data is available to the client through a user-friendly database accessible only through a password-protected website, allowing easy access and ensuring total data protection at all times.
Remote monitoring enables real time analysis of structures, which has the benefit of tracking sudden/dramatic movement where structural movement is a concern, enhances pro-active handling, helps quicker decision making and has the advantage of reducing environmental disruption. The technology is particularly useful for high level positions or if access is difficult, such as to church spires or beneath river bridges. It saves troubling homeowners for access, reduces travelling, especially to remote locations, and sets a good impression to important customers or in high profile situations.
Crack monitoring is an important process in the investigation of building defects and our technology will monitor cracks in buildings and measure movement of buildings to assist the diagnosis of building movement, including cracks in mortar joints, thermal movement in walls and distortion of buildings.
