IoT Use Cases by Sensative

At Sensative, we work globally with customers in a broad selection of sectors and markets. From municipalities, utility companies, and the security sector to real estate owners, shipping companies, and more.

We have published several stories of a wide variety of successful use cases to show what we do, how to utilize IoT technology best, and not least, what the real-life gains are.

The library has three sort orders to help you navigate; markets, IoT application, and IoT case type:


The use cases are sorted under their specific markets where they are applicable. 

If you, for example, filter for IoT use cases in connection to “smart city,” you will find examples of everything from AI in IoT surveillance cameras to the monitoring of car parks or water flow in municipal systems. 

Some cases apply to more than one market. For instance, Smart Cities tend to have a lot of Smart Buildings in them.

An IoT use case for smart buildings can deal with everything from remote operations, security concerns, or water leak detection to indoor climate. These use cases often revolve around monitoring indoor conditions such as temperature and setting up scenarios in response to data readings, such as automatically adjusting the HVAC system to improve air quality or lower the temperature.

An IoT case for smart cities revolves around anything concerning the municipality or city landscape. These cases can be about managing public spaces, waste management, environmental monitoring, smart parking, optimizing traffic flow, gathering data for structural planning, and more. There are easily 100’s or 1000’s possible use cases within the smart city, managed on one Yggio installation.
