How do you monitor flood levels?

If your town is an at-risk area, then you need to take a proactive approach to flood monitoring.

Pinacl can deploy flood sensors to provide a cost-effective, real world flood monitoring solution. The units can be used for alerts, early warning systems, and flood prediction within at-risk urban environments. Analysis of the data gathered can also provide a greater insight and understanding of the environmental and engineering issues involved with flooding. The battery powered flood monitoring sensors are compact and easily installed.

The sensors can be installed under grids in towns and cities to warn of flood risks earlier than previously possible. This can be used to warn residents and local businesses earlier to allow them to better prepare for floods. Flood sensors can provide the local agencies and authorities with real-time information enabling them to act decisively to prevent floods from occurring or at least minimise any impact.

Quite often flooding within an urban environment is caused by blocked drains or the failing of flood defences. The sensors can provide the local agencies and authorities with targeted information, enabling them to act decisively to prevent floods from occurring or at least minimise the damage caused. Once deployed, your water level monitoring sensors immediately give you distance and level readings at their GPS-tagged locations. Ultimately, flood sensors can save councils thousands of pounds by preventing floods and saving resources, time and money on costly repairs and evacuations. 

The sensors have a long battery life and data that is collected will be transmitted over a LoRaWAN network. LoRaWAN provides long range, low-speed communication for sensors, resulting in fewer Gateway devices being deployed compared to WLAN, cellular and mobile networks. LoRaWAN provides the capability for fast, secure and cost-effective deployment of IoT smart applications across an area where large distances are involved, within urban or rural environments.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has grown and developed rapidly over the past few years, often associated with organisations Digital Transformation strategies. This is creating accelerated opportunities within the ICT space for the ‘connectivity’ supporting IoT, fuelling this is the explosion in low cost IP (Internet) connected devices and the widespread availability of various wireless long range and low power communications (LPWAN).
