Yellowfinch is an Internet of Things (IoT) product aimed at reducing the risk of snowfall-induced roof collapse. By using weight-sensitive scales to measure the weight of snow and sending alerts when it is too heavy, Yellowfinch protects enterprises in manufacturing, transportation and warehousing, as well as property managers from losses and damage.
Yellowfinch comprises a set of professionally-installed and integrated sensors and an easy-to-use application for a variety of mobile devices, all based on a private cloud and supported with data analytics which offer real-time monitoring of the roof. It is easy to set up and integrates well with other IoT solutions, such as heating and cooling systems or moisture sensors.
Yellowfinch provides data for the purpose of risk management and contingency planning. It also helps reduce the number of building collapses.
