Innovative Technology Project puts County on Cover of State Tech Magazine

The County made the cover of the latest StateTech magazine, as part of the article that explains how the Internet of Things technology was used on the SmartAmerica program designed to help make residents of low-income housing safer.

Basically, the SmartAmerica project involves sensors in public housing units that will alert the resident and public safety officials of hazardous conditions, such as smoke, hazardous gases, air-quality, etc.

Chief Innovation Officer Dan Hoffman is featured and quoted in the article entitled “Better Living Through Technology.” Projects in San Jose, CA and Kansas City, MO are also featured.

All three projects are outlined in the From the Editor column by Editor-in-Chief Ryan Petersen.
