Tela have a large, existing client base, most of whom will benefit enormously from embracing the Internet of Things. Tela aim to take customers on an IoT journey and are focusing on key sectors, where they feel customers will experience the greatest benefit, starting with flood monitoring and protection.

Widespread floods across large parts of Central England have caused extensive damage to businesses and properties, prompting large evacuation orders and high-water rescues.

Authorities have estimated around £360 million in damages to local businesses, homes, and insurance companies. That’s an average of £32,000 worth of flood damage per property.

If you are concerned for your business and want to protect the public, property and processes, the Tela solution offers an early warning of rising water levels, giving you precious time to act.

Tela are offering the wireless Metron4 flood monitoring solution. It is battery or solar powered and completely independent of any external power. It is able to send regular level data to unlimited recipients, is available on any web-enabled device and will alert when flood thresholds are crossed.
