mm1 Technology ha re-created a simple use case for using NB-IoT in building automation as part of a hackathon. It shows how a water leak can be detected using NB-IoT. A pipe breakage is simulated in the use case. The flow sensors report measurement values via a NB-IoT connection to the cloud. If there is a leak, the values change, and the location can be identified. The advantages of NB-IoT are clear: Wireless connections have a large range without having to install cables, thereby making them perfect for connecting devices in buildings.
