Posti vehicles drive the equivalent of 6 times round the world each day checking post boxes. In order to reduce this effort and its environmental impact, they asked Telia if it was possible to start connecting their post boxes.
By placing NB-IoT sensors in the post boxes, it is now possible to monitor them from anywhere. Posti employees can now see on their mobile phones which boxes are empty or full and if any have been vandalized. This is particularly valuable in remote areas where it often takes a long time to drive to empty post boxes.
