Disruptive Technologies is the developer of the world’s smallest industrial-grade wireless sensors and a rapidly growing innovator in the IoT market. The Internet-of-Things promised a self-sufficient world of interconnectedness, but the technology was expensive, cumbersome, and limited. It also came with a range of new privacy and security concerns, hindering adoption. In 2013, we saw this as an opportunity for a major constructive disruption. We created a system of small, efficient, powerful, and adaptable sensors to reach an ever greater number of operational components. We also made data encryption a core priority.
Our sensing solution based on these tiny sensors simplifies data collection and delivers the data securely to our own dashboard (DT Studio) or our partners’ analytics programs in the cloud. Our technology enables sensor solutions for smart buildings, facilities management, workplace, manufacturing & warehousing, cold storage, and substations. Finally, safe, cost-efficient, and sustainable operations allow people to truly unload the ordinary for more rewarding pursuits. From predictive maintenance to energy efficiency and sustainability, we’re connecting people and information to deliver Connected Change™.
To turn our innovative vision to reality and deliver value to all operations, we look for individuals who are the best in their field and do not shy away from diving into unexplored technological territories.
To make our technology accessible to all customers, we go the extra mile on design, ease of use and installation and always create a “wow” factor. We partner with best in class and believe commercial success is a result of collaboration.
Our robust solution allows for the optimization of all operations, thus reducing waste across processes and saving energy. Everything we do is designed to make a difference and have a positive impact.
Providing disruptive IoT solutions and bringing value to operations can only be sustainable if we lead with honesty, integrity and transparency, and pay attention to people, planet, and profit.
