5. Case Study – H5Controls Facility Management Solutions using M2M One SIMs
H5 Controls have been building and implementing safety and management products for over 10 years.
To monitor the thousands of workers on the large scale site in the construction of Crown Towers in Perth, H5 Controls provided an easy-to-use access, security and management system. The Sentry H5 security system and PPLFlow registration kiosk provided identity verification, real-time location, notifications, emergency mustering,reports and auditing. The monitoring of information and activity of workers was available at any time by using a Smartphone or on the web.
Safety and security were optimally maintained during the construction of Crown Towers with the connectivity of M2M One SIMs to establishing a structured way for thousands of workers to enter and exit the site.
