IoT is an abbreviation for the Internet of Things and describes any device that “talks” to the internet.
The IoT includes Apple Watches, Nest thermostats, and FedEx package tracking. They’re all tools that provide a greater level of control and customization than their “non-smart” counterparts.
Typically, these gadgets first gather data, transmit it via the cloud, analyze it using their proprietary software, and then present the information. Then, some offer the opportunity to control the device remotely.
This level of insight creates greater convenience and accuracy, strengthening the bond between users and IoT devices – making the IoT all the rage. But the IoT isn’t just consumer-focused, it’s becoming a powerful business tool.
Common B2B IoT tools include security systems, mobile credit card readers, and inventory control devices – anything that will help increase efficiencies and control while reducing costs. Everything is getting a tech makeover, including waste services.
Waste services have remained relatively the same for decades. You put out the trash, someone picks it up, and you pay the bill. The IoT has provided a new depth and transparency to this once transactional process.
Each smart waste company utilizes the IoT differently, but Enevo’s IoT waste solution begins with its sensor. We make your dumpsters to talk to the internet.
True to the traditional IoT method, the sensor first gathers data: measuring fill levels and detecting collections. Then, that data is transmitted via the cloud and analyzed with Enevo’s proprietary analytics software, interpreting and predicting waste behavior to create a customized collection schedule and advanced waste programs. This information is then displayed on Enevo’s customer portal, providing a transparent view of waste services.
Enevo’s IoT waste technology creates waste services where:
… making waste one of the IoT’s most practical applications.
As the IoT continues to grow exponentially, its business presence will become more attractive and more necessary.
The control, the transparency, and the possibilities the IoT provides will pave the way. It’s important to explore which IoT tools are right for your business.
