Intelligent devices and sensors

CHECKINGplan® integrates a large catalogue of intelligent and IoT devices to make the platform more dynamic, and to communicate and activate tasks. This is why sensors play a principal role within the monitoring, measurement and information-gathering processes.

The hardware (antennas, sensors, biometric clocks and displays) based on MEMS technology (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) is responsible for detecting chemical or environmental parameters (luminosity, humidity, pressure, inertia, gestures, biometrics, pH, etc.) and converting them into signals that can be measured electronically, so that data is transformed into a value to later send to CHECKINGplan.

The IPv6 protocol allows for the linking of an almost unlimited number of devices (whether digital devices connected via a microcontroller or analogue devices that require conversion to digital), facilitating the most effective implementation of the platform. The platform, which is connected with sensors, manages and monitors activities and tasks, both in Industry 4.0 and service companies.

Sensorisation is applied in space monitoring, task automation, cold room control, industrial equipment, etc.

Most common sensors

icon-sensor-nfcCreated with Sketch.


A branch of the high-frequency (HF) RFID technology, providing a secure exchange of data. It works both as a reader and as a tag, which allows NFC devices to communicate point to point.

icon-sensor-binariosCreated with Sketch.


Simple mechanical devices that indicate opening and closing. They are usually installed in the openings and identify the physical separation of the parts.

icon-sensor-rfidCreated with Sketch.


Process in which objects are uniquely identified using radio waves. NFC is a specialised technology within the family of RFID technologies.

icon-sensor-beaconCreated with Sketch.


Device that transmits a broadcast signal with messages or warnings by Bluetooth directly to a multitude of receiving nodes simultaneously.

icon-sensor-huellaCreated with Sketch.


Capacitive sensors that can recognise the lines of a fingerprint and store the data digitally. This is a biometric method used as an alternative method to a pattern, password or PIN to unlock access or identify operators.

icon-sensor-wifiCreated with Sketch.


Detection and identification based on “probe requests” with no connection required. Used in transit statistics, user/customer return, etc.

icon-sensor-ubicacionCreated with Sketch.


In addition to GPS technology, there are also sound systems with mobile devices and zone anchors to automatically identify and track objects or people in real time, usually indoors. Used in the tracking of pallets and complex equipment, care of people, etc.

icon-sensor-temperaturaCreated with Sketch.


Used in measurement of machinery or raw materials, temperature sensors guarantee adherence to safety and/or quality thresholds. Also used in planting to track soil, water and crop temperature to maximise production.

icon-sensor-vision-artificialCreated with Sketch.


People-recognition technology by artificial intelligence algorithms provides a precise and real-time measurement of people flow. Applied in automated tasks for commercial space valuation, usage and capacity measurements.

icon-sensor-nivelCreated with Sketch.


Detect the level of liquids and other fluids of different densities, such as sludge, granular materials and powders in open or closed containers, enabling inventory of liquid assets and irrigation control. Frequently used in waste management and recycling.

icon-sensor-proximidadCreated with Sketch.


One of the most versatile sensors, with a wide range of possible uses, from the offer of advertising by proximity to monitoring of parking lots in large car parks, door openings, etc.

icon-sensor-quimicoCreated with Sketch.


Chemical sensors for fluids and gases that recognise and selectively measure the chemical species and include a transducer converting the chemical species into an electrical signal. Used to control fluids, air, etc.

icon-sensor-fotoelectrico-fotocelulaCreated with Sketch.


These sensors measure changes in light intensity, requiring a transmitter component that generates the light and a receiver that senses it. Designed for the detection, classification and positioning of objects, shapes, and colours.

icon-sensor-radiacionCreated with Sketch.


These sensors measure the amount of ionising rays (UVA, X-rays, etc.) and their variation to assess exposures in specific periods. Often used by operational personnel in supervisory areas.

icon-sensor-humedadCreated with Sketch.


Device formed and calibrated with the humidity relative to an area and which converts the analogical information to digital by means of an internal chip. Typical uses include soil moisture sensors generally used for agricultural production.

icon-sensor-acelerometroCreated with Sketch.


Detects vibration, tilt and linear acceleration. Its uses ranges from pedometers to levelling, vibration alert, anti-theft, etc.

icon-sensor-magnetometroCreated with Sketch.


Measures and quantifies magnetic forces, usually used as an electronic compass by setting it to detect the magnetic north pole of the earth.

icon-sensor-acusticoCreated with Sketch.


Measures dB (audible and non-audible) by detecting variations in air pressure caused by sound waves

icon-sensor-presionCreated with Sketch.


Used to avoid waste due to leaks in water resources. These measure the flow of liquids through pipes and send a notification when levels are inadequate.

icon-sensor-infrarrojoCreated with Sketch.


Able to measure infrared electromagnetic radiation from bodies in its field of vision. Used to visualise heat leaks in homes and electrical equipment, among other applications.

Además de todos estos dispositivos, existen docenas, sino cientos, de otras mediciones que pueden ser analizados.


The data stored in the peripheral arrives at CHECKINGplan via a communication channel which generates two gradients. Many of the traditional communication protocols are still used in IoT and their future improvements will be key. For example, local network connections via Ethernet or wireless transmission through mobile connectivity, based on the requirements of each location. These two options are used in connected cities, where the connection speeds allowed by 5G and later protocols will be the basis for the long-range connectivity of IoT. However, new protocols have been devised with IoT in mind, the communication of objects between them and distances. There are three types, all wireless, with different purposes and strengths.

  • RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) works at a range of 100 metres. Industrial applications.
  • Bluetooth. Operates at a range of 10 metres. Used in low-consumption utilities and connections of two intelligent devices.
  • NFC (Near Field Connection). Maximum detection distance 10 cm, for security and payment control applications and consumer devices. They are called LELow Energy”, precisely because they are designed to be implemented in systems with reduced batteries.
