Don Pringle, head of supply and systems at ServiceMaster Clean and current chair of the BDMA has been working closely with Caption Data on developing its remote monitoring system,HygroNet. "In the case of emergency work and water damage, where time is of the essence, the remote monitoring technology is a real innovation," says Pringle."In the past we might have had to revisit a job multiple times to check on progress.We can now cut that right down to once for set up and once to remove our equipment and complete the work." The HygroNet system is an internet enabled temperature, humidity and WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) sensor system, with nine remote sensor units which can be placed in walls or floors and that connect to a base station, reporting data via the internet. "It was quick and easy and it gave us great control of the drying process, alerting us of any problems immediately," comments Gareth and Keith Blower of ServiceMaster Clean Shropshire.
