Statistically speaking, construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in the world, so the SmartSite system is using statistics and technology to fight back and keep construction workers safer.

SmartSite bills itself as a smarthome system, but for the construction site. The key to the SmartSite system is the SmartSite device, a tool deployed on site that can monitor a host of harmful factors. The device has technology in place to track noise, the presence of harmful particulates, and UV radiation. It also comes with warning LEDs and alarms to alert workers to a change in conditions.

The information that the SmartSite system gathers is charted in a dashboard that site safety professionals can monitor and reference at any time.
