MoviTHERM launched iEFD Cloud, a secure cloud-based software application to support its iEFD Early Fire Detection series of solutions. The iEFD solutions leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to connect thermal imaging cameras, heat and smoke sensors to detect early fire formation at various stages and conditions.

“The days of expensive and overly complicated fire detection systems are over. Our iEFD solution provides optimal situational awareness that benefits both operators and first responders,” said Markus Tarin, president and CEO at MoviTHERM.

The new iEFD Cloud software has many built-in features that provide complete situational awareness to anyone who works in a high fire risk environment.

iEFD Cloud connects to thermal cameras that can detect, monitor, and record temperatures throughout the day. The application monitors the health status of all connected cameras and sensors. The user has access to all current and historical data measurements through the dashboard. Scheduled data reports can be sent via email straight from the IoT cloud software. MoviTHERM's intelligent IoT gateway in conjunction with a cellular modem assures seamless data transfer to the iEFD cloud.

If a camera detects a hot spot that may have the potential to develop into a fire, the user can be sure to count on iEFD Cloud to alert anyone near the area, keeping them away from the danger. All notifications are completely customizable and scalable, with unlimited user access. The application can alert anyone, anywhere, at any time with an email, text message, or voice call.

The application is an asset to first responders before they arrive at the scene of an incident. With iEFD Cloud's built-in interactive MapVIEW, first responders have access to the exact pinpoint location of the problem, giving them complete control of the situation. The built-in map updates in real-time, giving firefighters an advantage by knowing if and where a hazard is spreading.
