Environmental monitoring covers a wide range of applications for the IoT. It involves everything from air quality (levels of Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides and particulates in urban environment) to water quality and smoke detection when forest fires start. Using IoT environmental sensors for these various applications can take an otherwise labor-intensive process and make it simple and efficient.
The environment monitoring value chain, from sensor manufacturers to solutions providers to applications service providers, can facilitate end-user benefits by making connectivity a default feature in their products and solutions. Once connectivity is enabled, everyone on the value chain can move closer to the end customer. Through resultant data about measurements of environmental metrics, each value chain participant including application service providers can offer aftermarket services such as maintenance, upgrades, support and consultancy bundles.
