SHMS is now bringing it’s Swiss Technology to North America. The same quality and precision the rest of the world is accustomed to will now be available in the USA and also will soon be manufactured in the USA.
Structural Health and Response Monitoring utilizes several types of sensors embedded in, or attached to a structure to detect exceedance of allowed performance criteria as well as identify and verify structural behavior.
SHMS can detect any differential settlement and immediately notify management and/or residents if they need to evacuate immediately. You can instantly assess the viability of the structure if a natural or manmade disaster has occurred.
Structural Health Monitoring has a vast number of infrastructure applications including Dams, Bridges, Railways, and Power Plants.
Based on fast and reliable communication channels, our Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) solution provides the crucial seconds to take measures which may help reduce catastrophic impacts of seismic events.
Years of Experience
Poor maintenance strategies can reduce a structure’s life span and possibly create a life hazard if not attended in time. Most inspections are visual and do not consider any internal damages if no visual signs are present. Maintenance strategies fall into one of three categories, each with its own challenges and benefits:
SHMS manufactures their hardware and codes their software internally, making for a customized solution for each client’s application.
Easy to install, nonintrusive tech powered over Ethernet (low voltage CAT5/6).
Powerful and easy to use software with reliable tools necessary for making time sensitive decisions.
Factory direct response and great customer support.

No we do not require the structural plans to design a SHM system. It would be preferred to have the structural plans but No, it is not necessary to have the structural plans for your structure. Our structural engineers can perform a field study of your structure that would allow us to determine the threshold limits and the location of the instruments.
No. The alarm or non-alarm conditions can be customized so that all occupants of the structure can understand by sound and or/visual alert what is required to be performed either evacuate or not evacuate.
No it is not required for you to have SHMS to perform the monthly monitoring of your system. We can customize your system to perform various notifications via email to notify as many individuals as required of any event and what the condition of the structure is after the event.
Most major carriers have been known to offer anywhere from 15-25% discount on these policies. We will assist you in providing any documentation or information required to file for your discount requests.
The system self-calibrates the accelerometers should their be any issues the system will inform you that service is required.
Yes the GMS has a battery that will last approximately 6-8 hours. It is recommended that this battery be replaced every 2 years.
Innovative technologies in smart buildings drastically reduce operating and maintenance costs thanks to their ability to collect and analyze data, which previously was unattainable. In addition, sensors placed on equipment can automatically program maintenance activities, which are therefore based on use rather than pre-scheduled intervals. Predictive maintenance is 3 to 9 times cheaper than a reactive approach, traditionally achieved when the damage has already occurred. Moreover, with smart building management technologies, owners are informed of potential problems before the equipment actually fails.
