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 Burbank

Burbank was originally known as Upper Tingalpa. It was one of the three areas that constituted the original settlement in the Capalaba region. The development of Burbank is intrinsically tied with that of the whole Capalaba region, which hinged on the growth of Cleveland.

In 1841, James Warner made the first survey of land along Tingalpa Creek. He noted various fords and bridges along his route, including a dray ford across Tingalpa Creek, which is now under Tingalpa Reservoir. In 1850 he undertook another survey to establish a road between Cleveland and Brisbane, and decided on a ford just north of the current bridge site.

After the declaration of the colony of Queensland in 1859 the government undertook a programme of incentives to encourage settlement and immigration. Many of the early settlers of the Capalaba /Burbank region were part of this, including the Heinemanns, the Salms and the Scheuers, who arrived in 1863 and applied for a timber licence in 1866. Timber getting was an important occupation in the early days, followed by dairying and farming later on.

A growing number of farmers were successful in getting the provisional school moved from the Rocks (Capalaba West) to Burbank in 1876, although it was moved to Capalaba three years later. In 1880 the Tingalpa Divisional Board was formed with Burbank in Subdivision 1. By then the region was fairly well serviced because of its proximity to Capalaba.

Burbank remains a relatively undeveloped suburb, with a population of only 1169 in the 1996 census.

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.
