What Does Remote Monitoring Actually Mean for Construction?

“Remote monitoring” is an umbrella term that encapsulates a wide variety of applications. In the networking it relates to infrastructure security control and attack mitigation, and in healthcare it pertains to doctors using new technologies to watch over their patients’ vitals outside of conventional medical facilities (like at home, for instance). 

In the world of construction however, remote monitoring is a practice that takes a page out of the medical industry’s playbook. Leveraging the power of the Internet of Things, construction companies can use connected sensors to keep a close eye on everything happening at the site without actually being there. This proves especially useful for things like concrete which cures at its own time regardless of who’s on-site. No more need for tedious temperature data collection, remote monitoring gives project managers the ability to track every stage of their concrete pours at a glance.
