How the Smart Utilities Platform works

Robust. Long-living.
Uncompromised data quality.

Smart Radar

A self-contained device that uses a radar pulse to measure the level of water and other liquids without additional probes.

  • Low maintenance

    Battery can last up to 10 years. Configured, operated, and updated over the air.

  • Built safe and strong

    Operation range of -40°C to 85°C, IP69k resistance, safe for potable water environment.

  • Advanced technology

    Built-in accelerometer, GPS location, NB-IoT (Cat. NB1/NB2), LTE Cat. M1, and GPRS.

Smart Radar
Smart Hydrant Cap

Smart Hydrant Cap

A 5G replacement for the standard end caps fire hydrants that does much more than keeping water from leaking.

  • Tampering detection

    Thanks to a built-in accelerometer, it detects unauthorized interaction and sends an alert.

  • Condition monitoring

    Sensors detect water pressure, temperature, and humidity changes to prevent failures.

  • Long-lasting

    Rugged high-endurance battery lasts up to 10 years thanks to low-consumption sleep cycles.

Cloud computing and analytics

Thousands of devices. Around-the-clock monitoring. Massive amounts of data. It all requires perfect orchestration of hybrid resources.

  • Orchestra

    Provides secure, automated networking and hybrid cloud resources interconnectivity.

  • NB-IoT and LTE-M

    Data processed by the devices is sent to the cloud using the best available Telco networks.

  • Secure authentication

    Access provided by a single sign on (SSO) solution designed on top of OAuth 2.0.

Cloud computing and analytics
Online Platform

Online Platform

Total control over the devices in a few clicks. Here you can interact with data insights, reports, get alerts and manage maintenance windows.

  • Bird’s-eye view

    Check the status of all devices in few glances and get notified about potential issues.

  • Mobile application

    Workforce can use NFC to interact with devices and log maintenance activities.

  • Broad range of APIs

    Data can be easily injected into existing IT infrastructure or third-party solutions.

Use cases

Sewage level monitoring

Surges in wastewater can lead to clogging, causing costly infrastructure damages. The Smart Radar collects, processes and transmits sewage level data without cables or probes.

Sewage level monitoring

Smart hydrant caps

Detect the health status of mission-critical firefighting infrastructure to prevent leakages, poor water pressure, and get instant notifications in case of tampering or unauthorized access.

Smart hydrant caps

Rainwater location

Prevent rainwater from overflowing into sewage channels by monitoring the levels inside the pipeline through Smart Radars installed inside manhole covers.

Rainwater location

Remote tank management

Improve septic tank maintenance by remotely checking the waste level. Avoid unnecessary visits to locations that don’t require collection in the scheduled period.

Remote tank management

Groundwater measurement

A deep-water self-calibrating probe sends periodic updates on groundwater levels, replacing the labor-intensive task of visiting thousands of locations for simple measurements.

Groundwater measurement

Overflow monitoring

EU law dictates that overflow of catch basins due to heavy rain must be reported. The Smart Radar sends automated reports on affected locations through secure networking.

The NID-CTHINGS.CO solution is the first of its kind in Europe. We implemented it in a suburb of Copenhagen that, in 2011, suffered extensive flooding and damages after a downpour. During the testing phase, the pilot version monitored several locations and gathered more than 2,500 measurements. Now, the interest in our solution continues to grow. Recently, NID and CTHINGS.CO have been developing a new solution for the utility operator VA SYD in southern Sweden to monitor hydrants remotely.
