North is offering funded IoT Accelerator Packs to Council’s across the country to enable them to investigate and evaluate the power of the Internet of Things (IoT). Councils across Scotland will now be able to access free intelligent lighting, waste management, air quality, social housing, water monitoring and building health smart technologies offering the potential to transform operations, create safer, more productive communities and environments, and to deliver sustainable energy saving solutions and cost efficiencies.

How it Works
Kits are fully funded – there is no cost for consultations, set-up or support.
North will guide you through the end-to-end process, from consultation to selection to evaluating performance, we will work with you to ensure you achieve maximum value and benefit from the 12-month trial. In return, all we ask is for your proactive support to evaluate the solution and assess the impact on your organisation.
Accelerator Packs comprise of sensors, back-end services, IoT Scotland network connectivity and professional services to facilitate the rollout.
One council already adopting IoT technology through the IoT Scotland network is the Highland Council, with schools, care homes, leisure centres and council offices amongst those being transformed into smart buildings. Through the use of smart IoT sensors, data and insights captured from within council buildings include the monitoring of CO2 levels, temperature, humidity, ventilation, energy consumption and light levels, and are set to reduce costs and carbon emissions, whilst improving the environment for young people, elderly care home residents, members of the local community, and council staff.
