  3. Set up the equipment using the supplied smartphone app and begin monitoring.

Five steps to set up Sentinel on Demand

  • Define

    Define the monitoring program online including locations, when and what period. Use your own equipment or ours. Once finished we tell you the price and you create your official quote.

  • Deliver

    We send the instrumentation to your location the day before monitoring starts. We include everything: tripod, microphones, geophones, cables, locks, cell phone access and a sound level calibrator.

  • Deploy

    Connect everything together and switch it on. Instrument settings are taken care of automatically.

    You can use our smartphone app for iPhone and Android to confirm that everything is operational, precisely locate the monitoring units, document site observations and capture site photographs to include in reports.

  • Discover

    Now you can use the full capabilities of Sentinel to remotely review noise and vibration levels, receive alerts if levels exceed limits, listen to audio recordings to investigate alerts, view trends and automatically produce reports with detailed noise and vibration levels and summary compliance information. View the entire playlist of tutorials here.

  • Decommission

    At the completion of your monitoring program you collect all the field equipment and our courier picks it up from you to return to our depot. We check it on receipt and return it to our stores ready for the next customer.

Subscription Model

The Sentinel on Demand subscription model has been designed to be flexible to cope with differing requirements and to align with the way that you charge your clients for noise and vibration monitoring services.

Monitoring subscription

If you are using your own compatible instrumentation then you pay only a monitoring subscription of approximately US$30/€20 per location per day. This is charged for every day that data is collected by Sentinel on Demand. There is a minimum monitoring period of 1 week. With this subscription you have full access to Sentinel with real time display and alerting. Data is captured automatically for the requested period. It is easy to extend or shorten your monitoring programme at any time using the online tools.

After the monitoring is complete your data remains accessible on Sentinel – On Demand for as long as your data subscription continues – see below.
