Device designed to connect self-compactors.

Fire Alert

Rollover Alert

Filling Control


Signos IoT SiContainer is an industrial device designed to measure the fill level of different types of containers. It uses a single ultrasonic beam, capable of measuring up to 255cm depth.

The device has an accelerometer to detect movement of the container, which sends an alert immediately. The sensors are configurable via Bluetooth.

Fire alarm, frequency of measurements, current time and more can be configured.

The device is powered by replaceable batteries that periodically report their remaining capacity.

*has both modules, you can choose the preferred one via Configurator app

The Smart Sensors use ultrasound technology to measure the fill levels in bins and  containers and send the data to the Smart Waste Management System, a powerful  cloud-based platform, via the Internet of Things (Sigfox, NB-IoT, LoRaWAN) providing  cities and businesses with data-driven decision making, and optimization of waste  collection routes, frequencies and vehicle loads.

The received data are analysed and displayed through an excellent Dashboard which  includes maps, tables, graphs, data exports and fully automated planning of the  collection routes. The gathered data from sensors are presented also via Smart  Analytics which provides complex analytical views needed for decision making in terms  of planning and managing the capacity of the containers.
