IoT Preventive Maintenance
Preventive maintenance has reinvented the way the industrial segment of IoT improves the efficiency and working conditions of their facilities.
IoT devices such as sensors are being utilized alongside comprehensive analytics to detect and prevent problems with machinery before they even occur.
Now preventive maintenance is revolutionizing the way we can monitor the health and functionality of the devices in our smart homes. Not only does IoT preventive maintenance extend the life of home appliances, but it also provides a level of predictability to customers which can be leveraged as a competitive advantage.
Picture returning home from a long day at the office only to discover that your refrigerator is broken. Not only do you have to pay for repairs or for an entirely new appliance, but you also incur the cost of the food that went bad while the refrigerator was inoperable. Imagine how convenient it would have been if you had received a notification on your phone saying that the refrigerator was in need of a repair before it stopped working.
Many companies have already developed solutions to ensure that their customers never have to come home to a broken refrigerator. Zerynth offers a solution that uses both temperature and humidity sensors along with a cloud infrastructure that can be installed on older refrigerators. They provide an easy to use dashboard that enables performance monitoring as well as additional IoT functionality. Liebherr Appliances joined forces with Microsoft to develop a smart refrigerator that can detect changes in the appliance’s performance early on.
