Sierra Wireless’ remote monitoring solutions include hardware, network, and software applications for remote asset management for industrial use cases.

Managed solutions for remote monitoring include:

Agriculture Systems Monitoring

Monitoring temperature, food and water systems, water levels, and irrigation are critical in agriculture and food processing industries. Using a remote monitoring system can provide a cost-effective way of making sure these important functions are operating properly.

Water/Waste Water

Sewer lift stations and pumping systems should be monitored continuously to avoid sewage backups, spillage, and overflow. Heavy government induced fines can often be avoided through remote monitoring of controls that monitor water levels and spillage.

Industrial Lighting

Lighting systems for airport runways, cell towers, and safety lighting often have FAA compliance regulations that require these systems to be ‘always on’. Knowing where and if these systems are not working and getting them fixed quickly helps avoid costly fines.


Our IoT devices are designed to address the specific needs of any remote monitoring vertical application.
