The rise of IoT in construction has brought an adaptable and impactful solution to construction leaders looking to create guaranteed success for projects. IoT (internet of things) describes the network of physical objects – ”things” -- that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet. IoT in construction has become increasingly popular to easily automate and ensure optimal use of available resources, leading to saving on construction costs, enhanced view of worksites, and an “objective truth” behind construction workforces and projects.
Many construction teams believe that IoT in construction is an optimal solution to help large-scale construction projects, with no option to utilize it for smaller projects. The big question is, can construction teams use IoT in construction for smaller-scale projects?
First and foremost, how do large construction projects utilize IoT?
With large-scale projects, IoT in construction can be used for:
All of these helpful tools are not tied to only large-scale projects and can help smaller-scale projects as well.
IoT in construction is not only tied to just large-scale projects, it can also be utilized for any type of project size. With smaller projects, teams do not need the extra complex setups such as access control or large zones, rather teams can utilize 1-2 beacons onsite to get the job done. Managers have the opportunity to customize and automate specific tasks for their site, even if the worksite is smaller.
Ultimately, IoT in construction is an adaptable and scalable asset that industry leaders can effectively use to reduce labor expenses, improve efficiency, and maintain project timelines. IoT in construction provides accurate data, resulting in the most accurate and real-time feedback managers can use to make informed and empowered decisions onsite.
Construction workforce management software and enhanced workforce visibility platforms such as Eyrus help implement construction IoT, without the long setup times and complex equipment.
With Eyrus’ construction workforce management software, IoT in construction becomes completely streamlined and easy to use. From mobile app Bluetooth/GPS technology to badges and beacons, capturing data to create an enhanced and productive view of your worksite can assist managers in creating that source of “objective truth”, leading to automated and effective solutions. Eyrus’ solution allows construction industry leaders to be able to adapt to their specific worksite needs, no matter the project, workforce, or material size. Construction, on your terms, that’s the Eyrus solution.
