Alumnus Edward Pultar (PhD 2011) recently announced his company’s latest developments, using the brainchild he and his brother created, Valarm (“Versatile Asset Locator and Remote Monitor”), a powerful software platform for collecting geo-located sensor data:
It’s been an exciting 1st half of 2015! Here’s the latest from Valarm:
- Drought in California? We’re remotely monitoring real-time water usage, flow, and water levels in wells using sensors connected to the Valarm Tools Cloud!
- Tank monitoring with Valarm? Absolutely. With a terrific local company we’re easily + cost-effectively monitoring their tank farms using long-range WiFi.
- How do you use Valarm’s APIs for getting your real-time sensor data to your endpoints? Here’s a tutorial with sample source code showing you how easy it is to use Valarm’s JSONP API for just that.
- We’ve been around the world for conferences: Edward gave an invited keynote talk at the GIS Innovation Forum in Saudi Arabia and we had a wonderful time at the Esri PUG conference this spring! Petroleum, oil & gas has been one of our quickest growing verticals; click here to see what we’re up to in the natural resources industry and see a video where Valarm monitoring solutions were mentioned in the plenary.
- The city government of Washington, D.C., wanted to monitor air quality in real-time by attaching mobile Valarm sensors to government vehicles. We got runner-up for this year’s Esri Data Viz App Challenge; click here to see how we deployed mobile, real-time air sensors on the rooftops of government vehicles.
- You want to set up your own Valarm remote monitoring solution like those deployed in 40+ countries around the world? Shop.valarm.net has the components you need, and here’s a step-by-step video tutorial on how to connect your geo-enabled sensors to the Valarm Tools Cloud.
- In July, we’ll be at the Esri User Conference in San Diego, California – come by and visit us at our booth ( Z1 ) in the Expo to learn more on what we can monitor for you! Remember, we’re always excited to hear about the many ways our customers apply Valarm technology, and we enjoy helping out in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions!
