Halton Housing is embracing IoT and Sensor technology

Embracing IoT and Sensor Technology

Embracing IoT and Sensor Technology

Over the past 18 months, Halton Housing’s Disruption team have begun to embrace sensor and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to support our transformation from delivering reactive to pre-emptive services. 

The Internet of things or IoT is a system of interrelated computers, devices, machines, objects or people that have the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human interaction. It has been embraced by industry and has proven to save millions of pounds.  

This is now spreading into other sectors including housing. We are embracing this new technology using partnerships proven in manufacturing.  

We are utilising sensors and data science to improve efficiencies. The sensors gather information about how our properties are performing. We can record temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide levels and information about energy consumption. We are also pre-empting when boiler faults will occur and conditions where mould may develop. 

To find out more, take a look at our short video explaining how we are embracing IoT and sensors and what we are using this technology for.
