Through the use of wireless IoT data, it’s possible to run a more efficient operation, especially in the area of energy consumption.

“Whether you’re a Security Integrator, an Electrical Contractor, or anyone else involved in construction and customer service in commercial structures, IoT is where it’s at. With Verdafero, you can charge a monthly fee through Iot monitoring and data analysis via our cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service),” says Hood.
