Success Stories


Addressing high water temperatures and a dripping tap, Lindhurst lowered the thermostat and installed push taps, significantly reducing energy usage. Monitoring machinery and overall electricity revealed productivity issues, allowing adjustments. Tracking various parameters, from gas to noise levels, provides valuable insights, with potential annual energy cost savings of £25k, advancing Lindhurst toward Net-Zero.


Since installing four OpenSense Solutions, including a roving sensor, Trimmings identified inefficiencies in machinery, modifying a dual-motor system to a single, enhancing efficiency and reducing energy consumption. Additionally, monitoring and adjusting building temperature has led to significant gas usage reduction.


Unable to monitor anodising paint chambers, a solution was devised using current clamps connected to the tanks anodes, allowing real-time data recording displayed on a dashboard with remote network access. The system promptly detected a failed anode upon implementation, showcasing its effectiveness from day 1.

Installation is simple as possible and we will walk you through the steps with training videos and one-to-one support to get you up and running in no time.

The OpenSmartMonitor product range will help you to: observe energy usage and waste across your entire operations; calculate your effective carbon emissions (CO2e) on a real time basis; predictive maintenance, set alarms and alerts on key parameters to warn you early if there is a problem; resource utilisation, see how well key plant/assets/equipment are utilised and calculate the unit cost of operating these resources.
Environmental monitoring – ensure you have real time monitoring of key health and safety parameters such as noise levels, temperature and air quality. Can also be used for auditing purposes.
This depends on how many parameters you monitor and how you use the data. Typical savings range between 10% to 25% of your annual energy consumption after a period of initial monitoring. The on-going improvements to your operational efficiency are endless as you can build in enhanced monitoring and control of key assets to make further improvements.

Yes absolutely! Many parameters can be configured after installation and additional sensors can be added to your premises. Our sensors use either Wi-Fi, LoRaWAN wireless networks or hardwired PoE network cables. This means they are compatible with 99% of industrial installation situations. Our open source approach to interoperability, standards and integration means you can also add sensors from other manufacturers on the same network. We won't hold you hostage!
