IoT sensors enable you to get real time data from your assets, in other words, your building or ‘other space’ tells you when it needs attention. We monitor 12 different KPI’s in an ‘out of the box’ turnkey solution.
Our rugged IoT sensors are designed as a low cost, retrofit solution for remote locations with automatic setup. We provide our own network which works in 95% of populated locations globally, indoor or outdoor – all out of the box with no customisation required.
Each of the 12 sensors provide:
- Accurate monitoring of air temperature/motion/light/humidity, vibration within a room, enclosure or open space. There are also sensors with the functions of meter count, delta pressure, current, flood, process loop, temperature probe and on/off
- Used in conjunction with an Urban.io Gateway, each sensor will read and transmit the data it is monitoring to the Urban.io Cloud Platform on a near real-time basis.
- Measured data securely displayed within the Urban.io Cloud Platform for reporting purposes. Through the use of dynamic profiles, thresholds can be set for each sensor which can trigger alarms that can be sent via email or SMS.
- All recorded sensor data, historical summaries and alarms are available for use within external software platforms via the IoT Data API.

The Current Sensor is designed to interface with an Urban.io variable range Current Transformer (CT) and measure the applicable current draw.
The Delta Pressure Sensor averages multiple samples of gas flow fed by two hoses to provide readings to 0.1 Pa accuracy between a pressure range of -500 to +500 Pa.
The Flood Sensor detects when moisture is present by measuring conductivity between the two prongs at the end of the flood probe. When moisture is present the sensor will immediately turn on and transmit the data to the gateway. The sensor can also detect and report the relative level of moisture over time.
The Humidity Sensor measures the moisture and temperature of the air around the device.
The Light-Sensor uses a photoresistor to detect the intensity of light around the device. The sensor returns a value between 10 and 1000 lux making it suitable for detection of light levels within indoor environments. Note: This sensor is not suitable for outdoor light level measurement beyond 1000 lux.
The Meter Count Sensor can be integrated with a system (water meter, power meter, etc.) that provides an electrical pulse output interface to count the number of actuations within a given frame.
The Motion Detection Sensor detects motion and movement using infrared technology. When the sensor detects movement it communicates transmit the data to the sensor gateway.
The OFS-On-Off-Sensor samples every 30 seconds for electrical contact between the two end points. If there is no change it will report the state as a normal upon the default 10 minute interval. If a change is detected it will send a priority message through to the cloud platform to indicate the electrical interface has changed state.
The Process Loop Sensor is wired in series with an existing 4-20mA sensor and “piggy-back” measures the mA value in that sensor loop. This allows the sensor to mimic and report the values being read by an isolated or remote industrial sensor that is not connected to a SCADA or analytics platform.
The Temperature Probe Sensor measures temperature at the end of the probe, in degrees Celsius every 10 minutes and then sends the measured result to the cloud.
The Temperature Sensor measures temperature in degrees Celsius every 10 minutes and sends the results to the server.
The Vibration Sensor samples acceleration every 10 minutes. Time domain samples are converted to speed, then converted to frequency domain. The sensor reports the frequency and amplitude values for the top ten points in each of the X, Y and Z dimensions. Additionally the total amplitude for each dimension is also reported.
