Protecting Your Brand with Sign Monitoring

Imagine you own multiple buildings, all of which have signs. All of which reflect your brand, help drive business, and impact your bottom line. The laws of physics prevent you from being in more than one place at a time, so imagine you had the ability to know in an instant whether any of your signs were experiencing a low-voltage or outage issue. Imagine you had the ability to know remotely whether your sign was simply on or off, and the power to control your signs with no distance limitations. Almost sounds super-human, right?

The Canadian rock group Five Man Electrical Band said it best with their 1971 hit, "Signs" - "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign."

If you own a business that occupies a building, you have a sign. Your sign is your first impression to all who pass by. The business name, color scheme, font, maybe even a motto- all of which you might have spent days, weeks, or months coming up with- are all represented on your sign. It is, therefore, important that your sign is prominent. 

Your sign is your logo. It is how current and prospective customers distinguish you from all the other businesses around you. When you first opened your doors, you may have been on a budget and opted for a vinyl sign, but over the years have grown and decided to upgrade to a lighted, LED sign. 

Lighted signs look more professional and established, but also come with maintenance costs and upkeep. You can also expect to see an increase in energy usage with lights illuminating your rand image for hours every day and night.

All About Smart Building Protocols

When it comes to a network of devices, both wireless and wired, items must find a way to connect and communicate with each other in order to exchange information. A protocol is the link between these devices and draws everything together via the Internet of Things (IoT). Protocols allow devices to “talk” to each other in the same language. When devices are connected together via a protocol, it forms the smart building network that can be controlled with cloud-based software.
