Market Drivers for More Sensors• Reduce energy consumption• LEED certification / Green initiatives• Regulatory requirements• Increased automation• Remote monitoring• Improved occupant comfort The benefits of wireless solutions for monitoring and control applications are well-documented, including multiple studies by the U.S. Dept. of Energy. www.PowercastSensors.comWireless Sensors ©2013 Powercast Corporation 2
  3. 3. Wireless Deployment ConsiderationsHow far will it work? Will the data be received reliably? Wireless Deployment Parameters Battery Life How often do devices have to be maintained? Can this system scale for my enterprise? Wireless Sensors ©2013 Powercast Corporation 3
  4. 4. The labor cost of battery replacement is a majorconcern and deployment inhibitor for wireless sensors “The number one question I get "One of the primary hurdles to wireless sensor asked when speaking with market adoption is the requirements imposed by customers about wireless sensor battery implementation. Large installations that networking is …’how long will my require units to undergo battery replacement can batteries last?’ ” create maintenance costs that overpower the Joel Young initial cost of the equipment. Logistics surrounding CTO and SVP of R&D, Digi battery condition monitoring and replacement can overwhelm customers.“ Kirsten West The labor cost of replacing West Technology Research batteries in WSN will exceed $1 billion over the next several years. ON World “Industry will need to manage wireless sensor networks involving tens of thousands of nodes with their own power. These cannot be visited without great expense and labor and some cannot be visited at all.” Dr. Peter Harrop, Chairman, IDTechEx Wireless Sensors ©2013 Powercast4 Corporation 4
