TonDone: The easiest way to manage your facility services @ CES 2022



TonDone facilities managementIf you own a business, you know that there are some jobs that are really difficult to feel like you understand. Managing facility services, such as janitorial needs, can be a real challenge. For most of us, we simply have to trust that the job is getting done. We’re not around when it happens, and we don’t quite understand all of the details that go into the job. For those that provide the service, it’s even more important to know exactly what is going on at your clients’ offices. Fortunately, TonDone has created a product that gives everyone a better look into what is and is not happening in their offices.

What is TonDone?

TonDone is the solution to all of your facility service needs. With their mobile app, you can manage your team, get alerts from IoT devices, and control your business operations from your mobile device. TonDone makes work management simple so that you can focus on what you do best – running your business!

You’ll be blown away by how much TonDone can help streamline your business processes. From alerts sent straight to your phone to an intuitive mobile app designed with contractors in mind, TonDone has everything you need to take charge of your facility services. It is changing how businesses operate, making it easier than ever to track work, control costs, and delight customers with an amazing level of service.

How does TonDone work?

TonDone embraces the Internet of Things, creating a physical network of devices that help with proof of work. Using Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags, owners can verify that their facilities staff and contractors have physically been to the location, that they were there at the right time, and doing what is expected.

Of course, tracking the data is only part of the equation. Without reporting services, that data is completely useless. TonDone’s reporting services make it easy to get data out of the TonDone system and into a format that you can use to improve your business.

The system has an advanced reporting system that allows you to keep track of all of your staffers and contractors in near to real-time on your phone, computer, or tablet. This allows business owners and cleaning companies to keep track of what is happening, but also look for ways to improve the customer experience.

What are the benefits of TonDone?

The combination of tracking and reporting allows for a better understanding of your business. When your business is taking care of the offices of others, there are a lot of ways to improve the customer experience. Looking for efficiencies can keep the time down, as well as potentially the cost. You might also be able to identify employees and contractors that need more training because the amount of time they are taking on a project is far outside of your estimates and expectations.

Summary

TonDone is available now and in use by management with their clients. To learn more about the platform, get a demo, or try it for yourself, head over to the company’s website.

The applications of Chirp Microsystems’ ultrasonic range finder @ CES 2021



Chirp Microsystems ultrasonic range finderIf you are in the hardware design, robotics, automation, or home security industry, you are probably familiar with ultrasonic range finders. These are sensors that can offer a lot to a user. The best part is that many industries can make use of this technology.

Chirp Microsystems is right now the only manufacturer of ultrasonic range finders with MEMS technology. Here is everything you need to know about it.

The Uses Of A MEMS Ultrasonic Range Finder

Here is everything such a range finder can do:

  • Presence sensing
  • Position tracking
  • Range finding
  • Object detection
  • Object avoidance
  • Narrow and wide-field detection
  • And much more

However, the problem with these range finders has been that they are bulky. Chirp Microsystems has changed the game by introducing MEMS technology so that these range finders can become more compact and portable.

What Makes The MEMS Ultrasonic Range Finder By Chirp Microsystems Unique

Chirp Microsystems has introduced ultrasonic range finders within a compact package of 3.5 millimeters. Of course, this is not all. It also provides accurate range measurements regardless of the objects, colors, and sizes than previous technology did not detect.

Besides that, the range finder can work in all types of lighting conditions, heating conditions, and noise conditions. It also consumes incredibly low power because the technology is based around a silicon package. So, this ultrasonic range finder is set to change the game for many industries soon.

Final Words

If you are in automation, robotics, or any industry that requires a range finder, Chirp Microsystems should be your top choice. Their technology is one of the top ones out there that will provide you with much more flexibility. It is primarily a game-changer for all the hardware designers out there looking for more functionality and flexibility.

FaceMe allows for a more personal product experience @ CES 2021



FaceMe by CyberLinkAt CES 2020, we had the opportunity to be introduced to FaceMe by CyberLink. While most people think of CyberLink because of its video-related software, FaceMe takes that video processing knowledge and applies it to one of the most sought after aspects of connected devices – facial detection and recognition.

There has been a lot of talk over the past year about facial recognition and how it can be abused. Generally, the two ways we have seen the technology misused has been in inappropriate implementations and openly accessible data. FaceMe helps to address the concerns through its technology setup. While many systems require uploading images to a centralized server, FaceMe is an entirely closed system. This design allows for companies to create unique experiences while still valuing privacy.

The product came about almost accidentally. It was originally created as a part of another product called YouCam Makeup. This product was designed to allow for virtual makeup trials, which obviously needed the ability to recognize and distinguish a face and its features. After the success of YouCam Makeup, the company saw the value that the underlying technology could hold for themselves and others.

Because FaceMe is designed to be able to be used nearly anywhere, it means that it can help enhance lots of products and services. A developer could use it to create another virtualization product, like what we see with Snapchat filters. Or, a developer could use it to allow for individualization of products, like a pill dispenser. Imagine having a single dispenser in a home and, using embedded technology, can determine who is at the machine in order to only give them their medications.

If you are interested in learning more about FaceMe or engaging CyberLink on integrating the software into your platform, check out the product’s website.

NexPaq Modules Bring Versatility to IoT



NexPaq logoThe recent boom in smart, connected technology has given consumers more opportunities than ever before to command and control different devices. But if you want to bring the so-called “Internet of Things” into your home, you’re faced with potentially having to buy a small army’s worth of new devices to replace your old ones. What if there was a platform that allowed you to create your own IoT system using modules that could be configured to do almost anything? That’s what NexPaq is doing with its modular products.

Aylee met with Steve Safarowic, Chief Marking Officer of NexPaq. Steve showed off his company’s innovative system that uses modules to do specific things. First, he demonstrated a special smartphone case that interacts with the phone. Users can add modules to extend battery life or create programmable hotkeys to do certain tasks like turning on lights or making a phone call. NexPaq also has a standalone device that uses its modular system without a smartphone. NexPaq also has a developer kit that can be used to create new modules. Developers can even submit their modules to the NexPaq store where they could become available to sell to other NexPaq users. NexPaq smartphone cases and modules are available for purchase thru the NexPaq shop.

AwoX Makes the IoT a Little Easier to Use



awoxThe Internet of Things has created a fascinating collection of new connected devices. For most, though, smart lightbulbs are the first connected device they encounter. This is because the cost of ownership is far lower, and the installation far easier, than a thermostat or security system.

The problem with these bulbs is, to interact with most of their interesting features, you either need to have your phone or tablet out, or you need a voice control system. AwoX has a product that allows you to control your light without either of these devices – instead with a gesture controller.

This controller will be available this year from the company and their retail partners.
