In addition, it is difficult to track where those things go once they are stolen. A more economical and sustainable way to combat theft is to attach intelligent sensors or locks to be able to monitor these objects or places, remotely.

Better Use of Resources


With Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) cellular connectivity options in the form of Cat-M, Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT), and uniquely designed sensor devices, the ability to monitor objects and places is much more efficient.…
