Livestock Monitoring

According to, in 2010, 19.4 million dollars worth of livestock was lost to predators in Texas alone. A huge way to prevent that is by knowing where your animals are at all times, which can easily be done through livestock monitoring.

This is a way to track the location, health, and produce real-time data on your livestock. Through GPS tracking devices placed on the animals, you can optimize the breeding, safety, and overall productivity of the farm.

New York Fire Monitoring Regulations

Eight million people call New York City home, which means apartment living is the norm. With that many people living so close, fire safety and monitoring is key. There’s 747 pages of New York’s fire code regulations, but we’ll keep it to the basics.

First off, a central station must get approved by the FDNY before it can monitor a single account in New York. It also must be UL listed, meaning it will continuously undergo strict requirements to maintain top levels of reliability. Fire alarms are prioritized above all other signals, which must be retransmitted to the department immediately.

In terms of personnel, there has to be 2 operators on shift at all times. In order to monitor any alarm in the city of New York, a central monitoring station must keep records for all signals for six years. If you’d like to know more about how New York keeps up with their fire department, head over to our blog.

Noonlight App

For many high school graduates, leaving home for college might be the first time they leave their hometown. Thankfully GPS can often navigate you to where you need to go, but you might not know what areas are safe and unsafe. For those times, the app Noonlight comes to the rescue.

This app acts as a personal emergency response device. A user can press and hold a blue button until they are safe, and if let go for more than 10 seconds, an operator will contact them via text to verify the alarm. If no response is received, EMS will be dispatched. Noonlight can also be programmed with Uber to make sure you reach your destination safely.
