Zizmos Earthquake Sensors

Here is a small IoT device designed and coded as part of my job at Zizmos. Zizmos provides an advanced earthquake early warning system.  This is one of the types of sensors Zizmos uses in the field to detect earthquake shake events.   Please see  the Zizmos website for details on the full system.

This unit was the 'Municipal Sensor' to be used at Fire Stations, Hospitals, Libraries and other Municipal installations.

The sensor has a realtime processor subsystem that does accurate accelerometer sampling and then detects shakes with given signatures that are likely to be earthquakes.    The sensor board was designed and coded by myself so I present it here as it is a recent IoT effort.  

Earthquake detections are sent to the cloud based Zizmos backend by the linux main processor where propriatary code eliminates false triggers and then can send out notifications to the free Zizmos eQuake app which runs on  iOS and Android devices.   Again, please visit Zizmos website for information on the full earthquake early warning system.

Zizmos Home  Sensor

I redesigned the IoT Earthquake sensor for the home market prior to our Kickstarter.

This sensor used the Raspberry Pi Zero W which has built in WiFi.

The sensor shown here was developed with the same  realtime processor subsystem that does accurate accelerometer sampling and then detects shakes with given signatures that are likely to be earthquakes.    The sensor board was designed and coded by myself so I present it here as it is a recent IoT effort.  

As with the industrial model, this home Earthquake sensor sends detections to the same cloud based Zizmos backend by the linux main processor where propriatary code eliminates false triggers and then can send out notifications to the free Zizmos eQuake app which runs on  iOS and Android devices.   Again, please visit Zizmos website for information on the full earthquake early warning system.
