Whatever your “thing” we can probably web enable it!

Over the last 2 years we’ve seen a massive rise in the Internet of Things (IoT), a development of the internet connecting everyday objects to the internet, allowing them to send and receive data.

The CDLSmartHub allows you to connect your “things” monitoring data from them in real time, locally on your product or asset, and bringing the critical information from your product to our web based Software-As-A-Service platform, where you can be informed, take control, manage and configure your “things”.

Key features

  • see your assets location on Google maps,
  • monitor status with traffic light map markers,
  • manage performance across a portfolio of devices,
  • set and see KPI,
  • see visualisations, dashboards
  • deal with alarms
  • monitor audit trails
  • manage configure and control devices,
  • plan the use of your sales, service, maintenance resources,
  • supply management reports to your clients,
  • sell consummables,

We specialise in Remote Monitoring and M2M business solutions for industry and a range of industry sectors (see more on that under solutions and industries from our main menu). You could say we sit firmly in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), more so than IoT.

Whatever your Communication Protocols and options…. we can likely work with them! We have a range of hardware built up over years of working with serious clients with challenging applications, and that gives us lots of options. So it might be something like one of these…

  • Mobile temporary climate control equipment communicating with modbus, needing local real time monitoring and 30 minute reporting to the CDLSMartHub with dashboards and geo positioning information in event of power failure, or
  • Water quality instrumentation that is battery powered so ultra low power consumption is required, whilst taking analogue data with 16 bit resolution and using the CDLSmartHub to configure gain ranges, and alarm settings, or
  • Rental fleet of Chillers needing simple configuration systems and real time monitoring while on hire/off hire, all visible from the CDLSmartHub, or
  • Energy monitoring equipment with modbus, monitoring locally real time and reporting daily unless preset conditions are breached in which event the unit immediately alerts nominated individuals by email or sms, with full data visible via teh SmartHub


The NanoULTRA builds on over six years of experience from Caption Data and provides a robust, instrument grade platform for serious business and enterprise M2M applications.

CASE STUDY - real time data integration with Yorkshire Water’s Pi System

Yorkshire Water Logo

Since 2008 Caption Data Limited have been working with ATi UK to provide telemetry for a range of instrumentation. The latest application sees Caption Data’s RDL//nano integrated onboard ATi’s disruptive Turbidity monitoring technology.

Working with YW’s Real-Time Data Development Specialist, Caption Data were able to provide instant access to data as soon as it’s available, through a simple but secure connection between YW servers and their own.

Steve McGuin, YW’s Real Time Data Specialist says “Ease of integration is what we’re about. We were able to implement data from the CDLSmartHub against our standard structure by connecting our servers with Caption Data servers.”

CASE STUDY - The system that never sleeps (Published by Institute of Asset Management)


Hevasure Ltd have partnered with Caption Data since they began offering an innovative service that protects expensive HVAC assets and reduces risk by continuously monitoring the parameters that cause corrosion and system failure.

Steve Munn, Managing Director at Hevasure said, “Hevasure have partnered with Caption Data Limited in developing a revolutionary HVAC monitoring service. Using the Caption Data Nano data loggers coupled with our high quality sensors, we are able to remotely and continuously record data on important aspects of HVAC systems. This not only prevents failures but provides FM companies and installers with proof that they have maintained their client’s systems during their watch, thus stopping unfair litigation.
