Manhole cover monitoring with SimplePack

According to statistics, each year, an estimated 2,000 manhole events occur across North America due to aging electrical or other infrastructure. That’s 5.5 events per day. An unauthorized opening of the manhole is extremely dangerous and can occur numerous accidents to people and public properties. In order to prevent or at least reduce the damage, you need to constantly monitor the condition of the manhole cover and its openings and usage in general.
