Do you need to monitor something in a remote location? Or maybe need to just monitor a couple of things for a short amount of time? Or do you want to make installing some sensors as simple as possible? The Leap Sensor’s cellular IoT sensor transceiver node can be a great solution.
A standard IoT wireless sensor system consists of the sensor transceiver node, a gateway, and software. The transceiver node uses a radio signal to transmit readings to the gateway, which compiles and organizes the signals to send them to a software database. A cellular IoT sensor, on the other hand, works like a cell phone, transmitting its readings via cell towers directly to the software, bypassing the need for a gateway.
Existing direct-to-cellular sensors tend to be designed for very narrow applications, like wastewater treatment. The Leap cellular sensor transceiver node is a breakthrough in IoT cellular connectivity; you get all the flexibility of the Leap Sensors system, including being able to integrate almost any type of sensor you need, and the ability to pass data to any software.

Wireless Cellular IoT Sensors Applications
Direct-to-cellular sensor transceiver nodes are extremely useful for monitoring in remote or hard-to-reach locations, where there is minimal or no staffing, or for quick installation for short-term monitoring. Examples include:
- Plant Management: bag houses, HVAC units
- Building Maintenance: crack monitoring, HVAC, flood
- Structural Health Monitoring: remote structures (bridges, tunnels, etc.) either short or long-term monitoring strain, cracks, embankments
