Data and IT security play an enormous role in the development and use of digital products for pest control. It is therefore particularly important to find the right radio standard for the corresponding use case.
To give you an overview of the existing radio standards, we have created a checklist. In it, you can see not only which standards exist, but also which advantages and disadvantages they have in relation to digital products in pest control.
This table represents the opinion of some of the world's leading IoT companies and experts and consultants that have brought together their knowledge to make this overview possible.
Basically, you can say that the 4 and 5G standards are the way of the future. No more gateways and repeaters, but directly transmitting devices.
Why? They are much easier to install, the cost structure is manageable and predictable (and getting cheaper). They are very secure and extremely flexible - made for small installations with only one trap up to huge installations with thousands of traps.
Through our many years of experience and countless prototypes and inventions, we know what to look out for, especially with IoT products, and which radio standards offer the greatest benefits for the products. Through cooperation with scientific institutes as well as large billion-dollar corporations such as Bosch or Rhenus, Futura products are always "on the edge" and a bit better and more advanced. Thus, we have also been the trendsetters in digital pest control in the past - a tradition we take very seriously.
Our experts deal with the further development of our IoT products on a daily basis. Feel free to contact us if you would like to learn more about radio standards and IoT in pest control.
Our devices can connect to the server even in very remote areas, or in places with high interference. Our digital systems have antennas with greatly improved transmission power and use different frequency bands than the ordinary smartphone.
Our latest devices use radio standards developed specifically for the IoT, such as NB-IoT or LTE-M. These radio standards are specially designed to transmit even through thick walls, basements or sewers.
