Introduction to Luys’ Patent Pending Smart IoT Technology
The emerging smart building market is poised for rapid growth. Upgrading using smart building technology increases the facility’s value by improving customer satisfaction and improving operational efficiency. A key aspect of smart buildings is the deployment of sensors throughout the facility that continuously monitor building condition. This data can then be analyzed to optimize building conditions or adjust building maintenance and servicing.
Facilities that have or are planning to implement a smart restroom system will find Luys’ patent pending products an invaluable component of its smart device portfolio. Our LS-201 contains multiple usage and environmental data sensors. This sensor data is continuously collected and stored. The LS-201 also contains a wireless radio that can securely transmit real time and stored data across the Internet to Luys’ Cloud Platform by use of our LS-400 Wireless Gateway.
The LS-400 is a compact device that incorporates both a Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radio. The Bluetooth radio is able to securely communicate with all nearby LS-101 or LS-201. Note that since the LS-400 can communicate with multiple LS-101/LS-201’s, only one is needed per washroom. For facilities that have men and women restrooms adjacent to each other, one LS-400 may be sufficient to cover both washrooms depending on building layout.
The LS-400’s internal Wi-Fi radio connects the unit to the local Wi-Fi network. Using Luys’ Mobile APP, the user simply enters the local Wi-Fi network’s SSID and password into the LS-400. Once a LS-400 connects to the Internet, it automatically registers to Luys’ Cloud platform and communication is established. After the LS-400 connects to the LS101/201’s and to Luys’ Cloud, device data can be remotely accessed and stored in the Cloud.
Customers to Luys’ Cloud Service can utilize the Luys’ Partner Portal to access device status and stored data. Reports can be generated and exported. Alerts can be configured to notify the User when sensor values exceed customer determined thresholds. Lastly, device data can be securely sent to other Cloud platforms such as a facility’s Building Management System (BMS), if one exists, using an Application Programming Interface (API).
