Shaping the smart city
The most familiar connected devices in our homes are TVs. For decades, all we’ve had to do to change the channel is pick up a remote – and more recently, we’ve started controlling lights, heating, doors and windows in the same way.
But this kind of control relies on a power supply, and sometimes on the internet, too. In contrast, smart sensors connected to everynet are independent of other networks, and can communicate directly with the outside world.
This can be crucial. For example, everynet can be used to trigger a building’s fire protection system remotely, or as a security backup during a power cut or fault. It makes whole cities safer, and more secure.
Across a city, there are possibilities everywhere. In Singapore and San Jose, distributed sensors help automate urban parking. The way forward is clear: a smart, connected city, automatically responding to the needs of its citizens – powered by everynet.
The right connections can save lives.
Smart devices make it easy to track your pulse and blood pressure, or to make sure a medical implant is working properly. They can even be used to monitor the health of everyone in a building – for example, a care home.
everynet helps individuals, doctors and healthcare providers collect the information they need. To prevent medical emergencies. To promote healthy behaviours. To save lives.
Building better infrastructure
Smart sensors can be embedded into everything, from ovens to pylons, to optimise power supply to homes and businesses. With the help of everynet, they communicate directly with smart grids, automatically adjusting and fine-tuning. These grids can be of any size, covering a single building or a whole country.
And it’s not just about electricity. Water companies in Europe are deploying remote sensors across their network to monitor the health of pipes and equipment. Since installing them, some major suppliers have spent 30% less on infrastructure, and suffered 70% fewer breakdowns.
The same logic applies to everything, from roads and bridges to dams and drainage systems. Distributed, real-time data makes infrastructure faster, more efficient and longer-lasting.
Transforming agriculture and protecting nature
For millennia, we’ve collected data about our natural environment. Now, everynet makes it easy to put this data to work.
Sunlight, rainfall, pH. When you know more, you can grow more. You can harvest crops at just the right time, and monitor them during shipping. Forward-thinking agribusinesses are already using smart sensors throughout their supply chain, from field to factory to supermarket shelf.
everynet helps us protect nature, too. Smart sensors give scientists a powerful new way to collect data on everything from migration to disease transmission.
A healthier environment, and a more productive one – thanks to everynet.
Making our roads safer, cleaner and faster
Cars and other vehicles are already ‘smart’: they can measure speed, torque, temperature and distance. everynet makes it easy to harness the power of this data.
With everynet, drivers can improve their driving habits, and reduce fuel consumption. Michelin has started installing smart sensors directly into some of its tyres, to help haulage companies operate more efficiently. Insurers can use everynet to offer more flexible policies. Cities and governments can use it to improve traffic flows, reduce collisions, and plan for the future.

Utilities are complicated. Electricity, gas and water distribution all rely on huge infrastructure networks. And estimated bills can be frustrating for customers and providers alike.
everynet simplifies the whole process. Small, cheap wireless modules connect to household meters, and communicate directly with the network.
The result? Bills are more accurate. Faults and leaks are spotted more quickly. everynet makes all kinds of utilities networks perform better – for everyone.
