Smart Sensors: Applications, Benefits, And Working

Why we designed smart sensors that put you in charge of your home without invading your privacy with cameras or complex electrical installations. Having a healthier home should be as easy as this. Meet Koto, the best looking smart sensors that make your home healthier by making you aware of all the little things in your environment that have a big impact on how you feel. With Koto Blink, you can keep track of temperature, humidity, light, and noise.

Koto Storm:

Even when you have no power or are offline. Koto Air keeps track of all the basics and it also lets you know when the air gets unhealthy, so you can avoid sore throats this winter. This is what makes Koto Air perfect for bedrooms and nurseries. And when you really want to be in control, Koto Storm measures everything and even lets you see when a storm is approaching, so you can avoid getting caught in a storm on your run and keep your home safer during storm season. Koto Storm is the ultimate notification center for your home or office.

Its hidden display doesn’t disturb you when you don’t need it and it syncs all your Koto sensors into the cloud, so you can see if you forgot to turn off the lights when you’re away from home. Of course, monitoring your indoors is just the first step. This is why the Koto app offers easy-to-follow advice for different types of rooms and can even help you sleep better. Koto sensors can also talk to your thermostat, connected lights, and other connected devices in your smart home and we already have an API for developers.


You don’t have to be a techie to use Kyoto. We’ve made it super easy to get quick feedback right on the devices and we designed all Koto sensors to look great in any room, without getting in the way. Koto is the evolution of CubeSensors. We’re an experienced team that has been researching indoor health for over three years now. We have already shipped our award-winning indoor monitoring Cubes to thousands of users in over 50 countries worldwide. With Koto, we’re building upon everything we’ve learned and we are taking indoor monitoring even further.

We have everything we need to starting producing your Koto sensors, right here in Europe. But we still need your help. We are here on Indiegogo to get your feedback and give you the opportunity to be the first to adopt Koto sensors into your homes and offices. With your support, we’ll be able to start the production and ship the first Kotor faster. If you want to be the first to discover a healthier home with Koto, please check out our story for more details and find your perfect Kyoto sensor for your home. And if you know of somebody else who also needs a healthier home, please send them the link to this project.

Producing Data:

Data is what elevates a simple item of clothing like a sports jacket, into a unique expression of you. How clothing suits you, serve you, and fits you is based on data. Fashions change and so has data science. Clothing is getting very smart very quickly, and the kind of detectable data we’re talking about will eventually go way beyond fit. Our bodies are producing data all the time. About pulse, heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and so on. And until recently, that data was essentially lost. Not any longer.

The newest clothing created by engineers and data scientists aims to capture that info and seamlessly incorporate it into your connected lifestyle. We think of activity monitors as living on your wrist, dutifully programmed by us. But these are being replaced by even smarter apparel, that knows heart rate, muscle effort, and breathing. Whether you’re a triathlete or recovering from a stay in the hospital. But this is only the start. Soon clothes will be able to reveal or conceal even more about who you are, how you feel, and where you want to go.


Thanks to the power of data, clothing will soon have a voice of its own. The nature of how we interact with clothing is changing entirely because of data. We’re talking clothes that will share your health data in an emergency, saving your life. If your heart is racing, your shirt will know it. If you hit the floor suddenly, it will notify the nearest first responders. Clothing will send and receive your information to others: Networking made easy. Imagine instead of giving someone your business card, it’s already taken care of.

Data will allow your clothes to be even more creative and expressive. Your apparel can change color to reflect your mood based on liked photos or sent texts. Is someone making your heart beat faster? Data is your new trusted wingman. And this is only the beginning. Today we think of data as bits of information flying across networks. But in the future, it will be the key to looking sharp and truly dressing smart.

Managing Mission:

Critical facilities can be difficult, especially as data center power and cooling needs continue to increase to support new business applications. Datacenter managers need the right tools to measure and manage environmental risk factors impacting their operations uptime, availability, and cost. Fortunately, there’s a solution. Introducing SmartSensor: Environmental monitoring devices designed to give you constant insight into your operation! With Raritan’s SmartSensors you always know the state of your data center environment.

Raritan’s SmartSensors deliver the latest sensor technology, enabling the highest metering accuracy, easy plug and play deployment, and critical real-time notifications of potential threats in your environment. smart sensors are available for temperature and humidity, air pressure, airflow, proximity, vibration, and contact closure. An industry first, SmartSensor offers RJ45 connectivity, greatly improving deployment speed. Simply position all sensors exactly where you need them, then connect with standard network cables.


They’re also designed for hot-swappable replacement, keeping the existing wiring in place and allowing you to just replace the sensor head. Raritan Xerus technology platform is at the core of each sensor allowing up to 32 smart sensors to be deployed on a single cable chain, from a single sensor port. SmartSensor technology provides the highest flexibility of deployment as any sensor type can be mixed and matched depending on your application needs.

Xerus Firmware will recognize each sensor type positioned in a given chain automatically, making data collection into any management software easy and fast. For better alerting on-site, SmartSensor is equipped with a status LED; pre-programmed patterns blink to alert you when the sensor crosses a given threshold or when Firmware is being updated, enabling you to stay in full control. For remote alerts, you can set triggers with or without Power IQ DCIM software and get notifications through email or text anytime your environmental conditions are at risk.
