Meridian Explores the ‘Internet of More Things’

By | November 28, 2014

Aberdeen, N.C. (PRWEB) November 26, 2014 — Over the next six months, Meridian will be conducting an in-house beta test and a pilot project with its Mzero Remote Sensor solution.


The sensors being used for Meridian’s beta tests will both be powered using small solar panels. Mzero Remote Sensors can also be powered by battery or be hard wired, depending on the scenario and ideal configuration.

The Mzero Remote Sensors are attached to traditionally offline devices. A variety of sensors measure different inputs such as temperature, motion, weight, etc. and send signals when conditions trigger any number of preset parameters. “I like the idea that we are connecting previously unconnected devices,” said Meridian CEO Chris Gilder. “When you have a business, the ability to receive instantaneous feedback gives you a huge advantage; we know that Mzero Remote Sensors will be a game changer for all sorts of organizations.”

“Mzero Remote Sensors make way for the ‘Internet of More Things,’” said Gilder. “The use cases are endless – inventory alerts for ice chests or propane tanks at convenient stores, notifications for shopping carts at large retailers, and so on; these tests will give us important feedback as we refine and open up this product to many more possibilities.”
