When evacuated during a natural disaster, people are concerned about the condition of their homes. We designed a home monitoring device that collects and transmits information about the potential damages to your home before, during and after a natural disaster. Our Radio Home Monitoring System (RHMS) can provide instant peace of mind knowing condition of your home, no matter where you are.
With the information collected from the device accessible via mobile or desktop application, evacuees can have real-time knowledge of a home’s condition.
This system detects four different things: power, wind, temperature and water level. RHMS uses radio signals to transmit this data in case Wi-Fi or cell service are unavailable. The device consists of two parts: sensors that collect the information and a receiver that transmits the data over long distances.
Users create an account in the app on their phone or computer, which allows access to the information about the home. All information is securely stored and transmitted.
When the power is out, similar devices are unable to meet these needs. RHMS works for about two weeks after losing power. The device is waterproof and resistant to certain damages like impact and heat. RHMS allows you to feel secure and informed from a safe distance—and get a head start on fixing your home if anything goes wrong.
