Abstract/Technology Overview

UnaSensors is a brand new sensor-as-a-service offering that can kickstart anyone’s IoT journey at a maximum retail price of USD 5 per month, including hardware, software and connectivity. UnaSensors features five sensors:

  • UnaSense: a temperature and humidity sensor,
  • UnaMotion: a human passive infra-red (PIR) detector,
  • UnaProtect: a magnetic sensor that detects opening and closing of assets,
  • UnaBeacon: an asset locating tracker,
  • UnaBell: a smarter button with brand new features.

The five sensors were shortlisted based on the top ten most sought-after data requirements gathered from IoT users and early adopters globally. As an end-to-end solution packaged with connectivity and software application, the customisable sensors aim to simplify and accelerate the adoption of IoT in the following clusters: smart cities and utilities, smart industry and supply chain, and lastly smart buildings and smart homes.

Potential Applications

For F&B
UnaSense is a wireless temperature and humidity sensor. It can set alert range according to the user’s need to keep the wine in a suitable environment. With its low power consumption and the use of the Sigfox network, UnaSense can last 2+ years without charging. This low-cost device can set the reporting frequency and customized temperature and humidity range alert in order to control the environment for perishable foods.

For Healthcare - Elderly 
UnaMotion is a motion detection device. It can be set at home and the notification parameters can be set through the App. e.g. Elderly moment can be monitored and alert sent to the caregiver when an abnormality occurs.

For Retail - Resource staff distribution
UnaMotion allows users to send a notification when a certain area is getting more and more crowded. So that the staff can react accordingly. Once the yellow alert notification is sent, the centre can distribute the human resources before the area gets too busy.

For Logistics - Asset management & Security
UnaBeacon is using an accelerometer sensor to detect any movement of the asset. If the asset has been moved, an alert notification will be sent. It can be used for assets like scooters, which can be moved or stolen when parked. UnaProtect uses magnetic sensors to detect when doors or windows are open. With this low-cost and wireless solution, it is ideal for both home & office application.
