SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helium, a San Francisco-based Internet of Things (IoT) company that makes sense of your things, today announced the launch of the Helium Pulse™ monitoring and alerting application. Available for both web and mobile clients, Helium Pulse enables monitoring and alerting from anywhere so that companies can save money, improve efficiency and increase customer satisfaction.
The Helium Pulse application is designed to quickly and easy monitor and alarm using one of several Helium smart sensors. Helium Pulse comes with powerful customizable alerts out of the box that reduce false positives that can create alarm fatigue. Helium’s emphasis on smart sensors and intelligent monitoring means its alerts are both immediately useful and powerful enough for the most complex environments. These complex alert rules can be applied to one or thousands of sensors easily so that true enterprise scale is straightforward and manageable. Real-time alerts can be delivered through email, text or app-based notifications or integrated into existing business systems through modern web APIs. Pulse handles management of the smart sensors from the cloud and provides reporting and data visualization for all sensors in the system.
Helium also announced its new Helium Green™ Sensor today, which reports temperature, barometric pressure, ambient light, motion and humidity all from a single smart sensor. Helium Pulse and Helium smart sensors provide a fully integrated, end-to-end solution, including sensing, network connectivity, data management, control, business logic, analytics, monitoring and alerts and a management dashboard.
“Helium is transforming numerous industries, from healthcare, to food and beverage, to insurance and building management, by offering smart sensors coupled with simple, elegant applications like Helium Pulse,” said Rob Chandhok, president and chief operating officer, Helium. “Using Helium, companies can improve efficiency, avoid loss from equipment failure and reduce downtime.”
Raising the Bar for Health and Safety Standards in Food and Beverage
Helium Pulse is currently in trials with various customers in the restaurant industry. By adding Helium smart sensors to existing refrigeration units, restaurants can use Helium Pulse to continuously monitor internal temperatures, better adhere to compliance and regulation guidelines and alert staff to any significant deviations. By continuously monitoring storage conditions, restaurants can ensure health and safety standards are met and avoid spoilage, risks to customers, or lost inventory.
Protecting Inventory in Healthcare and Hospitals
Helium is partnering with hospitals and healthcare organizations to continuously monitor medical refrigeration units using Helium Pulse, reducing risk and improving patient safety. This includes inventory monitoring of refrigerated items, such as medications, vaccines, tissue samples and other medical products to prevent loss of samples and to ensure compliance. Helium is currently in trials with several of the top 10 hospitals in the U.S.
