KML exported directly from Valarm instantly produces compelling 3D visualizations using Google Earth.
The Valarm Analytical Mapping tool enables up-to-the-minute as well as full-historical browsing of all activity, plotted on an interactive map. Advanced tools allow plotting of paths and coverage areas for groups of alarms, colored-coded by your device configuration. The path tools display distances traveled, average speed, and other statistics. There is a button to plot [...]
The Valarm Command Center gives you real-time environmental data and locations of all your active devices. Choose your refresh rate, and show or hide devices to customize the view. Watch your vineyard, farm, fleet or other assets in real-time. You’ll see environmental and weather data, direction, speed, current traffic, plus more.
Valarm’s integration with Google Maps allows incredible views of satellite imagery, Google Maps Street View, and current traffic data. Click anywhere on the path of your asset to immediately see the situation on-the-ground, as well as view the statistics recorded or calculated by Valarm, including speed and travel direction.
Valarm’s Sensor Plotting allows a quick view of device sensors. Visualize and compare a variety of sensors like vehicle speed as measured by the GPS, with ride-roughness as recorded by the on-board accelerometer. Additionally, Valarm handles external sensors via Bluetooth (OBD2 for vehicle data) and USB (Yoctopuce for weather data). Easily customize your search results and [...]
Valarm is the Sensor Web and Internet of Things.
A powerful research and data collection tool since it integrates a variety of sensors: temperature, humidity, CO2, VOCs, switches, potentiometers, and electrical resistance. Sensors built in to mobile devices are also supported: GPS, accelerometer, light sensor, microphone, camera, 3G/4G, WiFi. Valarm provides functionality for real-time data collection purposes in urban and rural environments. Sensor events such as motion or shock are logged to the device’s local database and whenever an Internet connection is available the data are uploaded to the Valarm cloud database. External sensors are available for Valarm via Bluetooth (OBDII) and USB (Yoctopuce).
Data can be collected at customizable time intervals (e.g., every 5 seconds or every hour) depending on the phenomena you are studying. Additionally, data can be collected based on spatial and environmental changes, e.g., alert and collect a data point when CO2 levels exceed 600 ppm (also send an email and SMS/text message), VOC levels go above 500 vppm, humidity drops below 20%, a specified velocity has been exceeded, or when the phone enters or exits a specified area or geofence.
Any combination of sensors are simultaneously available during data collection. With the mobility, portability, and price of Android™ devices, Valarm fully harnesses the power of the growing, ubiquitous coverage of data networks. If additional data collection, research, evaluation, statistical analyses, or optimization are needed, contact the Valarm team ( info at Valarm dot net ) with your questions.
Some possible Valarm use cases:
- Transportation: collect and analyze travel behavior data, track vehicles, analyze, and optimize their efficiency.
- Environmental: Land Use Land Cover (LULC) analysis, USB sensors may be plugged in to create standardized data collection techniques for heart rate, temperature, humidity, or any other required data.
- Social: Install Valarm on any number of devices and give one to each survey participant for a standardized data collection process.
- Raw data can be downloaded as CSV or KML for use in any application, including tools for visualization, GIS, or statistical analysis.
