Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MONITORING A PROPERTY
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SURVEILLANCE DE PROPRIÉTÉ
Abstract:
(EN) There are provided systems and methods for monitoring a property using a system of sensor units in one or more premises on the property that can interface with respective utilities entering the premises or being generated by appliances on the premises with a minimal of effort and without requiring modification of the utility's equipment or the appliance. The systems and methods are connectable to a cloud-based monitoring, analytics and notification system via a long range network connection directly from one or more of the sensor units. The system of sensors can also incorporate primary and secondary units with at least one primary unit capable of communicating directly to the cloud-based system/server via a long-range connection with the secondary units sending data to the cloud via the primary unit by communicating at the property via a short-range communication connection. There are also provided various sensor units for specifically monitoring water flow and water leakage, flooding, sump pump operability, levels within water softeners and other fluid containing vessels, electrical power usage, furnace operations, among others as described herein.
(FR) L’invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour surveiller une propriété à l’aide d’un système d’unités de capteur situées dans un ou plusieurs locaux de la propriété, qui peuvent s’interfacer avec des services énergétiques respectifs entrant dans les locaux ou générés par des appareils situés dans les locaux en ne demandant qu’un effort minime, sans obliger à modifier les équipements ou les appareils fournissant les services. Les systèmes et les procédés peuvent être reliés directement à un système de surveillance, d’analyse et de notification en nuage au moyen d’une connexion de réseau à longue distance depuis une ou plusieurs des unités de capteur. Le système de capteurs peut également comporter des unités principales et secondaires, avec au moins une unité principale capable de communiquer directement avec le système en nuage/le serveur au moyen d’une connexion à longue distance, les unités secondaires envoyant des données au nuage par l’intermédiaire de l’unité principale en communiquant au niveau de la propriété au moyen d’une connexion de communication à courte distance. L’invention concerne également diverses unités de capteur permettant de surveiller spécifiquement les débits d’eau et les fuites d’eau, les inondations, le bon fonctionnement des pompes de puisard, les niveaux dans les adoucisseurs d’eau et dans d’autres récipients de liquides, l’utilisation de l’énergie électrique, le fonctionnement des fours, entre autres éléments décrits ici.
