WiiLSW - The Manhole Cover Sensor & Open Detector
Deploy real-time monitoring and protection against metal theft, vandalism, and unauthorized access of manholes with WiiHey's manhole cover sensor unit.
WiiLSW is a positioning sensor in the WiiHey family designed for monitoring manholes and hand holes. In addition, WiiHey's customization and adaptable sensors make a host of other monitoring solutions possible as well, e.g., cabinet doors or anywhere else movement of a barrier is necessary to gain access to an asset.
WiiLSW was designed to be extremely tamper-resistant, rugged, and sealed for use in damp environments. With the utilization of commercially available, off-the-shelf sensors, it is trying to be a zero-false-alarm solution. Since WiiLSW is wirelessly connected and battery powered, no hard wire is needed at the location of the sensor allowing it to be deployed where there is no power or cable available.
With the network system, the real-time manhole status data is transmitted from the sensor to a cloud database via LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) technology. The sensor in combination with the cloud database will provide you with a web-based GIS dashboard platform to monitor and well plan the maintenance of your manhole assets.

Dimensions of the WiiLSW sensor:
WiiLSW supports two optional wireless communication methods -- UNB(Ultra Narrow Band) IoT technology and NB (Narrow Band)-IoT technology. Both technologies have transmission ranges of up to several kilometers in urban environments, with very low power consumption, data are then transmitted to cloud sever for further processing and delivery into the end-users system.
