In todays world we can now build devices smaller then ever, and these devices are packed with sensors and wireless connectivity. These devices are called Internet of Things (IoT). So if your looking for a way to monitor various systems (e.g. crops, air conditioning, lighting), and also would like to compare the results via integrating the results, then building a wireless sensor network is the way to go.

If your looking for someone to develop a wireless sensor network for you, or simply need improvements to an existing system, do not hesitate to contact us.

Information About Acacia Ridge

Once a sea of wattle, Acacia Ridge was one of several dormitory suburbs developed in Brisbane’s southern industrial belt in the 1970s as part of a massive decentralisation program.

After the inevitable land clearing that coincided with the original residential development, the trees are returning to Acacia Ridge through street-planting, private gardens and public parks. In places like Freny Park you can watch the young trees grow and children hone their skating skills on the beginners' bowl whiling away a few pleasant hours with a family barbecue.

The area also has an unusual link to World War II through the American forces’ decision to use a disused quarry as a dumping ground for old aircraft and armaments. The salvage rights for the quarry were subsequently granted to historian Terry Kelly who unearthed a rich cache of collectible Browning and Hispanos machine guns, aircraft and engine parts and other military odds and end.

Acacia Ridge is roughly 13km from Brisbane’s CBD. Over 41% of households in the area are couples with children, 31% are couples without children and 26% are single parent households. 94% of the dwellings in this area are stand-alone houses, and townhouses account for a further 4%. This is an older suburb, and the housing styles reflect this. There are many weatherboard homes and the occasional brick and tile low set house. The median house price in Acacia Ridge for the 2002/03 financial year was $139,000.

COLETEK Amazing Customer Testimonials

We met with Luke Cole from COLETEK and very quickly realised that he was very knowledgeable in robotics and prototyping. What separates his company from the rest, is that he had a unique value proposition - COLETEK offers a tele-operated / robotic unit for rent and with the flexibility to be modified to build proof-of-concepts. That unit lowered both the cost and time for us to produce a video showing a very challenging concept. In general COLETEK's service was great value. We would recommend them - they will get it done.

I recently discovered COLETEK after I accidently managed to fry the PCB on my hard drive. The drive contained 13 years worth family photos and wasn't comfortable sending it off where it could be damaged more or lost in the post. After spending hours researching and emailing different data recovery companies, I decided on COLETEK. Luke was very helpful and let me know the estimated costs up front, and was able to quickly do the repairs necessary to get my drive running like new again. I was able to back up the whole drive and the bill ended up cheaper than the original quote. I can highly recommend them and have already sent a friend to get their drive repaired too.

I have been working closely with COLETEK for the past 6 years now, and I must say, it is a success story :-). I highly respect their team, they are a pleasure to work with and top skilled professionals. In addition to their top Technical service, their customer service is brilliant and it is a rare find. Their PCB repair rework skills are top notch and a rare find in this industry. I have been working in the IT industry for the past 20 years in various fields and seen it all so I can say with certainty that they are the best around and I am looking forward to keep working with them in the future.
