Internet-of-Things project supported by East Hampshire District Council

By Post in Local People

A NETWORK of internet-connected devices which could allow East Hampshire businesses to share vital information is being developed with the help of East Hampshire District Council.

The council has been working with Hampshire entrepreneur Alex Barter, of Barter for Things, on plans to launch an Internet-of-Things network.

This will see low-powered, long-life sensors send information to businesses via antenna, saving thousands of pounds in monitoring and maintenance costs.

Agreements have been made to place the antennae on public buildings to cover the whole county, with one being erected at Penns Place.

Alex said: “This will have huge implications for businesses all round Hampshire and I want to thank EHDC for supporting me as I worked through the plan.”
