Sales Manager at IoTree
The IoTree team is united by a vision to accelerate the application of Internet of Things (IoT) in all parts of commercial life. The company brings formidable expertise to turn that vision into reality, with skills across end-to-end IoT deployments, machine-to-machine applications, network and communications infrastructure, the cloud, analytics, application management, and automation frameworks.
IoTree and Thinxtra first partnered in 2018 when IoTree began developing commercial IoT applications that needed low-cost, reliable IoT network connectivity.
Before partnering with Thinxtra, IoTree explored a range of IoT network connectivity options. Some wireless technologies didn’t offer reliable coverage in all areas of Hong Kong, while others were unable to cover long distances or prohibitively expensive to scale.
Since partnering, IoTree and Thinxtra have designed and delivered IoT solutions that are delivering remarkable customer outcomes for Hong Kong businesses, including:
Indoor Air Quality
- Remote monitoring of quality, temperature, and humidity at the Construction Industry Council to make sure students aren’t exposed to dangerous levels of harmful toxins
- 24×7 monitoring of temperature and humidity in data centre server rooms at the Hongkong International Terminals site
- Improved rodent management at the popular Yeung UK Road Market with digital rodent surveillance
- Fast, easy insights to theatre occupancy at the Electrical and Mechanical Department of HKSAR.
With deep expertise in facilities management, IoTree is committed to providing customers with the choice to obtain, analyse and action IoT data outside their existing building management systems (BMS).
Wong says, “Most building management systems need a wire to connect the IoT sensor and access power, which makes it an expensive solution to operate. Most customers need sensors in hard-to-reach or hidden places where it’s impossible to connect a wire or power supply. The long-range, low-power demands and reliable connectivity of the wireless Thinxtra 0G Network make it easier to solve customer challenges than traditional approaches to connecting IoT sensors.”
At Thinxtra, we believe strong partnering is critical to get great customer outcomes. We’re pleased to work with solution providers like IoTree, to deliver real value to businesses that Hong Kong residents rely on every day. Our public, reliable 0G Network spans 90 percent of Hong Kong, which means our partners and customers don’t have the burden or cost to build and maintain IoT connectivity. They can simply connect to it at a low, fixed, and predictable fee per device and focus on running their core business.
