Monitoring vibrations of buildings and seismic environment
What it is in a nutshell
We have developed a series of products we collectively call Simple Multi-Monitoring Service (SMMS). Our goal is to provide a variety of sensor monitoring services that are inexpensive and easy to use.
Yure-MON NEO is one of our SMMS products. Yure-MON NEO monitors the acceleration of the building to which it is attached, as well as the air temperature, humidity, and air pressure of its environment.
It can be used to monitor the conditions of buildings and storage houses.

What it is in more details
1. Real-time monitoring of acceleration, air temperature, humidity, and air pressure
Yure-MON NEO samples acceleration at the frequency levels of 20Hz and 50Hz, and displays their latest 90-second time series in real time.
It also records the air temperature, humidity, and air pressure of its surrounding once every minute, displays their latest 24-hour time series, and updates them once every 10 seconds.
The recorded data is archived and is downloadable from the display screen. The acceleration data can be downloaded in the .win and .txt file formats, while the temperature, humidity, and pressure data can be downloaded in the .txt file format.
2. Transmitting data to the cloud by MEMS sensor via smartphone
The MESM sensors used in Yure-MON NEO are compact and light. They send data to the smartphone logger named SmaTra by Bluetooth.
The data is stored in SmaTra for a certain duration of time and is transmitted to the cloud by Wi-Fi or mobile communication systems.
Cloud users can monitor the observed data in real time on the web page.
The sensor and data logger together cost 169,000 yen.
Usage example 1: monitoring acceleration on multiple floors of a tall building
In this example, Yure-MON NEOs’ sensors and data loggers are placed on multiple floors of a tall building. It would enable the building owner to monitor the differences in acceleration among different floors during a seismic event.
On high floors, the difference would become especially apparent between the magnitude of seismic intensity determined by Japan’s national weather service and that recorded by Yure-MON NEO.
Usage example 2: Monitoring the environment of storage houses
In this example, Yure-MON NEOs’ sensors and data loggers are placed in a storage house.
It would enable the storage owner to monitor seismic activity, air temperature, humidity, and air pressure inside the house at a distant location via computers.
This would save the cost of having to frequently travel to the site.
