In 2015, Stellenbosch University pioneered a new Internet-of-Things company called BridgIoT – a revolutionary start-up that seeks to connect everyday objects to the Internet.
The project’s first phase was supported by the MTN Mobile Innovation Lab and, the Technology transfer office of the University of Stellenbosch, Innovus.
As a showcase of abilities, BridgIoT developed its first product and named it Geasy: an intelligent geyser system that can be seamlessly retrofitted to household geysers for the following purposes:
Measuring and reporting of household water usage:
Measure energy usage and cost for the purpose of saving;
Remote control of the geyser, including schedule and auto-schedule control;
Burst detection and mitigation.
