Reasons to Invest

We have already raised $1.6 million in seed money and completed a shipping cloud-based Industrial IoT application (Avimesa.Live) for device management and sensor data visualization. Our products are installed at customers and are ready for us to start marketing.
We are offering preferred stock, which is generally less risky than common stock. Our preferred stock has a liquidation preference that pays back preferred shareholders investment before common investors can participate in upside returns. Our employees and founders’ stock and options are based on common shares while our investors get preferred shares.
The Industrial IoT market is estimated to be worth $263.4 Billion by 2027 and our technology has simplified the connection of Industrial Things, including millions of existing installed analog and digital sensors using Avimesa.Live, creating a massive opportunity.

Overview


Avimesa makes putting sensors on Things easy — even over acres of coverage!


We focus on industrial customers who have working yards. A working yard is anything from a shipping port, to railroad yards, to farms, to school yards, to parks, rare lumber yards, waste, and water treatment facilities. All Things (like in Internet of Things) have something to say, even if they are not digital. For example, a gate moves, water flows, air has different pressure (and so does water), chemicals react, and moving Things like motors change speed, power, and vibration. Most Things have some aspect that can be measured, and Avimesa is designed to keep track of all of those variables. Inexpensive sensors on Things can be placed over acres or just a few square feet. Better yet, Avimesa is fully self-sufficient and can optionally get power from the sun and Internet from LTE. Even if there isn’t a readily available power source in your field, Avimesa can connect to a network.


Avimesa works with thousands of different types of sensors that can be used for security, business intelligence, usage graphing, cost savings, notifications, early warning alerts, and routing personnel to Things in need of attention, just to name a few. Customers also have the benefit of receiving 2,000 free monthly readings as well as free technical support.   





THE PROBLEM


Businesses can’t innovate and solve 21st century problems with 20th century technology and techniques


While working yards come in an array of shapes and sizes, their one commonality is that they have an abundance of moving parts. With all of these moving parts, it can be easy to lose track of Things and even personnel, which can negatively impact performance and even threaten the safety of workers. Most current working yards haven’t had the necessary technological overhauls needed to modernize their solutions. If industrial yards are to thrive in the modern era, they are going to need modern solutions.


Is the cooling system in the equipment room blowing the right temperature?  Have the medications in the deep freezer been kept at the proper temperature? Are you aware of any flooding in underground facilities? These are just a few of the near infinite questions yard managers need to keep up with if they are going to work efficiently.







THE SOLUTION


A platform that monitors all your Things



We built an Industrial IoT platform that makes it easy to use existing high-end industrial sensors and inexpensive Bluetooth sensors. Our platform immediately allows businesses to increase awareness of their business with a small, low-cost deployment and quickly scale to their entire facility.  And, while the value of business intelligence is immediate, it actually appreciates in value as more historical data is stored over time.



With Avimesa, customers can easily set up alarms for user-configurable thresholds to notify you of any potential mishaps. Freezer temperature too high? Send a message to a group of admins through our platform. Entry gate stuck open? Trigger an alert and get it fixed. In addition, Avimesa’s API allows developers to build custom IoT applications without having to build their own IoT backend.



Avimesa simplifies remote monitoring for industrial customers by providing a plug-and-play setup of sensors, hardware, and application. A customer orders a starter kit specific to their industry. Setup is as easy as an Amazon Echo, and in just a few minutes, customers are able to monitor their assets with a customizable dashboard in the Avimesa.live web app. 



We offer a monthly, subscription-based recurring revenue with base monthly charges for the number of Avimesa Gadgets (gateways) running at a customer site. Additional fees are charged for higher sampling rates (up to multiple times per minute) and professional services are available for enterprise level customers.  

OUR TRACTION


Small victories pave a road to massive success


We have achieved a stout $1.6 million in seed funding which has allowed us to develop a complete IoT solution, including complete cloud and provisioning infrastructure and a browser-based application called Avimesa.Live. 



We completed primary product development in January 2020 with a variety of test customers throughout 2021 including working farms, semiconductor manufacturing, and a four acre multi-use yacht club with a marina and private beach. The provisioning and perimeter aware and advanced BLE enhancements that make the Avimesa.Live Starter Kit possible just recently reached beta development status.







THE MARKET


One solution for a multitude of industries


The Industrial IoT market is heading to $263.4 billion by 2027, and Avimesa is well on its way to claiming a stake of this massive industry (Source). 




There are many factors that prevent the modernization of industrial facilities such as availability of power, harsh environments, accessibility, network, and personnel issues. These obstacles can make installing existing IoT solutions even more expensive and complex than they already are. Avimesa, however, was created specifically with flexibility in mind so we could scale our platform to virtually any type of industry. We offer a remote monitoring solution that can be set up in minutes, with hardware that can be powered by a small solar panel if power isn’t readily available.   


Solar is important to many industrial customers.




This flexibility allows us to measure virtually any variable in virtually any facility and working yards. We work with sensors that can monitor vibration, power, liquid flow, volumetric moisture, light, temperature, motion, force, radar, pollution, and much more. Even better, we have developed technology to tag people and equipment if they have entered or exited a geofenced area. We are committed to bringing industrial businesses into the modern age, and our innovative and cost-effective platform will accomplish that goal.


Industrial businesses come in all shapes and sizes but share the characteristic that they can be large, diversified, and have obstacles. Even if a site does not have power or internet, Avimesa can drop-in an inexpensive plug-and-play solar field unit to power its platform. Avimesa can combine low-cost BLE sensors/tags with high-end industrial loop sensors in a mixed-use solar powered environment. Plus, Avimesa’s Industrial Starter Kits provide a quick and painless way for customers to test out the actual Avimesa system that can be scaled to their needs.



WHY INVEST


We are the future of Industrial IoTs


Avimesa aims to be the gold standard in Industrial IoT, particularly for working yards. We have the scalability, the technology, and the leadership to be the number one player in our field. In the digital age, information is the currency of the realm, and our platform can provide customers with real-time information for every Thing  in their facility. By investing in Avimesa, you are investing in the backbone of tomorrow’s industry.

Integrated Climate Feeds Online -- Combine sensor and windy.com API data with rules to add context to readings

1 day ago


Adding regional climate data to the Avimesa.Live rules engine allows users to add context to sensor readings.  This is especially true when sensing temp, humidity, and greenhouse gases.

We are happy to announce that we have windy.com API data feeds integrated with Avimesa.Live and will be available to all beta users at Midnight, Sunday, December 5th.  The feeds include wind, wind gusts, temperature, dew point, precipitation (rain, snow, convective), precipitation type, CAPE index, high clouds, medium clouds, low clouds, humidity, geopotential height, pressure, waves, wind waves, swell, swell 2, CO concentration, dust mass, and SO2 mass.

As always just email support@avimesa.com with any questions on how to configure the readings.


Using Avimesa Enterprise grade development tools for a small air quality project to measure pollutants created by resins and related toxins. With a user story featuring our very own Collin Hinson, VP Technology.

3 days ago

Using Avimesa Enterprise grade development tools for a small air quality project to measure pollutants created by resins and related toxins.

-- With a user story featuring our very own Collin Hinson, VP Technology.  

Avimesa has an extensive set of developer tools and an API to enhance Avimesa.Live or even build your own custom application.  Tako, an Avimesa Master VAR, has spent millions building their enterprise-level application and its support systems are designed to meet the needs of asset managers and maintenance technicians for some of the largest companies in the world.  They used the Avimesa Client API and the Avimesa IoT cloud superstructure to build their own application that also integrates workflow, which is a key requirement for many of their corporate customers.  Additionally, Tako is an OEM for Avimesa 1000 hardware to support their use of heavy duty  4-20mA industrial grade sensors.  And, Avimesa Gadget is an essential component of several Tako integrations.

But wait -- what if you don’t have Tako level budgets and just want to build a simple prototype? What if your parts budget is only $100?  You can do that with Avimesa too.  Before going on to the story about Collin, it should be noted that Avimesa provides support for  “hobbyist” parts because there are many industrial, corporate, and agricultural developers that use these parts for prototyping.  As a matter of fact many of the suppliers have corporate divisions to sell these parts for prototypes.  Most of the components in these parts are the same that are used in their industrialized counterparts. 

So now, about Collin, our VP tech, and his air quality project.   Collin surfs often and, on a bad day, has to repair surfboard dings using toxic resins that can become airborne. Collin’s roommate also makes stuff with plastics and resins in the garage to boot.  The garage is easy enough to ventilate: just open the garage door.  Problem: they also workout in the garage.  Exercising usually requires greater than average amounts of oxygen so Collin and his roommates definitely want to make sure that the air is clear of pollutants before they start pumping iron.  Here are a couple of pictures:


Obviously, as VP Technology, Collin can make Avimesa do anything he wants.  But, Collin likes to do projects using only the tools that Avimesa makes available for free to all developers.  In this case he had two goals:  (1) Phone alerts to himself and his roommates on extremely poor air quality in the garage, and (2) a real-time air quality graph to gauge dangerous levels of aerosolized resin particulates while they are working out.  

Collin used Avimesa.Live as the front end, and focused on integrating the sensor.  He chose the CCS811 indoor air quality chip which was available pre-packaged on a board with leads that  hook to a Raspberry Pi microcontroller.  He easily did this project for less than $100 in parts.  But, unlike a typical hobbyist project, his air quality project is connected using Avimesa Gadget with  the Avimesa  IIoT cloud superstructure providing all of the industrial grade benefits, provisioning, and context awareness.

While Collin’s project is a home project, it demonstrates how simple hobbyist parts can be used by large or small customers to cheaply build prototypes that have industrial grade features and scale.  Once a system is prototyped, then the parts can be upgraded to an industrialized counterpart with, oftentimes, few other changes.  A developer who works for a hotel could easily commercialize Collin's project with sensors relevant to the location of the hotel gym.  Easy prototyping is essential to proper IIoT planning and deployment.

Integrating new sensors into an intelligent IoT network can be challenging.  Actually hooking the sensor up is usually easy but the rest of the integration can be time consuming.  Collin used Avimesa Gadget, freely downloadable by any developer, to hook the sensor to the Avimesa cloud.   Avimesa Gadget makes the authentication, digitization, transmission, and messaging pain free for both prototyping and final integration.  It also has a Command Line Interface (CLI) which is highly useful for both development and technical issue problem solving. 

To handle the CCS811 air quality chip communication and data acquisition, Collin wrote a simple Python script that does just so and also pushes the obtained data to Avimesa Gadget for relaying to the cloud. Avimesa Gadget then uses a “heartbeat” for cyclic, time interval based communication with the cloud to transmit the air quality data to Avimesa.Live along with Raspberry Pi health metrics.

The rest of the setup was done using Avimesa.Live in a browser to setup the alerts. Readings from areas and setups in new installations can take a while to calibrate which is simplified by using the built-in graphing in Avimesa.Live and the CLI in Avimesa Gadget.   Next week Avimesa will be delivering its regional climate feeds to customers.    Because Avimesa provides context awareness, Collin will be able to upgrade the rules for his air quality alerts to include wind conditions and pollutants in the climate -- all from within Avimesa.Live with point-and-click changes.

If you or your developers want to integrate a sensor of your choosing with Avimesa, just send an email to support@avimesa.com with a link to the sensor and we will provide you with technical support on your integration.  If you need help finding a sensor then email us with your requirements and we will help you with your search.  If you need full professional services for integration, we can do that too and also have several development partners that are absolutely expert in IIoT projects.

Extensive and detailed developer documentation about all of the Avimesa developer tools, API’s, and interfaces can be found here:

Notice of Funds Disbursement

4 days ago

[The following is an automated notice from the StartEngine team].

Hello!

As you might know, Avimesa has exceeded its minimum funding goal. When a company reaches its minimum on StartEngine, it's about to begin withdrawing funds. If you invested in Avimesa be on the lookout for an email that describes more about the disbursement process.


This campaign will continue to accept investments until its indicated closing date.


Thanks for funding the future.

Avimesa is adding methane sensing to its growing list of supported sensors; to be used in Climate Kits for greenhouse gases and general air quality.

10 days ago

As new rules from the EPA, certain states, and regional authorities roll out about greenhouse gas output, Avimesa will start to target industries that will be facing increased regulation.  The sensor readings can be combined with the previously announced regional climate feed.  The regional climate feeds are useful for providing context for the sensor readings with user-defined rules.  

 Only Avimesa customers and investors are eligible to apply for the beta program but supplies are limited.  Each beta tester will be able to test a unit for 10 days and then send the unit to the next tester on the schedule.  We are starting with five beta kits and plan to increase that number to approximately twenty to thirty kits over the beta program.  To get on the list, simply send an email to support@avimesa.com with “climate” as the subject and your name in the body of the text.  To keep it fair, beta shipments will be shipped in the order that email requests are received.  Climate kits will be going into an internal calibration test first and will be released to beta testers soon after the new year.  

Pictured above is a Cubic SJH-5 methane sensor next to a ruler to show size.  Avimesa just received five test units and one dev unit for inclusion in beta Avimesa Climate kits.  The kit will include sensors for measuring temperature, methane, humidity, ammonia, and CO.  It will also include regional climate readings for wind, wind gusts, temperature, dew point, precipitation (rain, snow, convective), precipitation type, CAPE index, high clouds, medium clouds, low clouds, humidity, geopotential height, pressure, waves, wind waves, swell, swell 2, CO concentration, dust mass, and SO2 mass data.  

Sensors come with a variety of hardware interfaces and many of them have their own proprietary command set.  We strategically developed Avimesa Gadget specifically for interfacing with any sensor regardless of the hardware interface.  The interface for the Cubic sensor is similar to the interface we developed for the previously announced Ebara pump integration and is a primary reason that we chose to test the Cubic sensor first.  For technical readers:  The interface to both the Ebara pump and the Cubic methane sensor is RS232 so the primary drivers are done but, as with most RS232 interfaces we have to implement their proprietary command set into Avimesa Gadget -- this will be our 3rd integration with an RS232 device.

After concluding the testing, Avimesa will be taking pre-orders from investors and customers to establish quantities for the first production run.  Our target price for the climate kits will be less than $400 and will come with at least 1,000 free readings per month with blocks of additional readings purchased online.  During the beta test phase, there is no limit on the number of readings.  There will also be a K-12 program for substantial discounts for schoolyards.

Why we are offering preferred stock vs common stock.

16 days ago

Many of the investments on the StartEngine platform issue common stock, but a lesser number of available investments use preferred stock, like us for example.  Avimesa is offering preferred stock to investors and we felt that it would be helpful to help you understand the investor benefits of Avimesa preferred stock.

Essentially, preferred stock is generally viewed as less risky than common stock.  Read on to understand why.  

TLDR; Here are some takeaways:

  1. Preferred stock is generally less risky — shareholders get their money back plus they share in the upside of sale

  2. Preferred stock is usually only accessible to VC firms and angel investors

One of the reasons why Avimesa is using preferred stock is to give investors additional rights that are not available to Avimesa common shareholders.  To create the “preferences” for the preferred shares, Avimesa was required to file documentation with the State of California that would not be needed if we offered common stock.  

Another primary reason for offering preferred stock is that Avimesa had committed to do this with the $1.6M in seed investors.  So, StartEngine Reg CF investors in Avimesa will get this same advantage. 

In the case of a liquefying event, such as the sale of the company, Avimesa common shareholders do not get any proceeds until the preferred shareholders get their original investment back. In other words, preferred shareholders get their money back plus they share in the upside of sale.  It should be noted that Avimesa has no current plans for selling the company and it is only being used as an example of how preferred would work in that case.  

Finally, if you look at most Series A deals with Venture Capitalists, they are done with preferred stock.  This is because those deals have a limited number of investors allowed into the deal.  StartEngine provides a unique opportunity for Avimesa to offer these, likely more valuable shares, to the entire StartEngine community.

You should carefully read the subscription agreement and the other investment information provided on the StartEngine platform as this update is not intended to replace the info in those documents.

Platform Update: Avimesa brings climate and weather conditions to Industrial IoT logic

19 days ago

Regional feeds of climate conditions can be used in if/then logic for all types of sensors

We are updating our shared sensor capability with free climate feeds for Avimesa.Live beta users.  Initially, wind, wind gusts, temperature, dew point, precipitation (rain, snow, convective), precipitation type, CAPE index, high clouds, medium clouds, low clouds, humidity, geopotential height, pressure, waves, wind waves, swell, swell 2, CO concentration, dust mass, and SO2 can be used to augment Industrial IoT sensor readings.  Reading availability varies depending on the region selected and other factors such as climate model.  

Simple logic such as “If it is raining near me, then check the flood sensors once per minute else check them once per hour” can be used to more intelligently manage readings so they use less bandwidth and are more relevant.  More complex logic can be constructed using other Avimesa features, such as perimeter awareness, to create highly aware alerts, notifications, and graphs.  The readings are actually delivered using the Avimesa Industrial IoT Shared Sensor network.  More information on the shared sensors can be found here:

Avimesa brings the concept of “Shared Sensors” to Industrial IoT (IIoT)  

Said Collin Hinson, Avimesa VP of Technology, “We felt that we can ‘supercharge’ the shared sensor system by using the same technology to also deliver feeds from other sources.  Doing climate as our first external feed was a no-brainer because it immediately adds value to many different types of sensors.”  

We have not yet included methane in the initial climate readings as we are still evaluating methane data feeds that could be useful for both oil and gas as well as agriculture customers.  Obviously, with the various different infrastructure and climate deals being done internationally, methane is becoming increasingly important to monitor.  Avimesa already offers methane detection using off-the-shelf sensors, such as the Cubic SJH 100, that will benefit greatly when regional feeds are available to help put the sensors closer to plumes of the greenhouse gas.

Pricing for the new climate feeds is free to Avimesa.Live beta users who will receive a notification over the next weeks as their account is enabled with the climate feed.  Users will be able to get a regional climate reading for free every five minutes.  The climate reading appears in the dashboard as just another sensor so the alerts, notifications, and graphs work in the same way.  Corporate and government users can use Avimesa Professional Services to add their own feeds to the shared sensor network.

Business Partner Update: Avimesa teams with Master VAR Tako Inc. to interface with Ebara Pumps' native sensor interface to send readings to the cloud.

23 days ago

We just completed the first level of integration testing with Tako Inc. of the native interface to the popular Ebara Dry Vacuum Pump used in a variety of industries, including the semiconductor industry.  Tako is an Avimesa Master VAR that has spent more than a million dollars developing their own application, also called Tako, that interfaces with Avimesa Messages and Avimesa Gadget, the key entry points to the Avimesa Industrial Cloud super-structure.  Tako is also an OEM partner and uses the Avimesa 1000 board as a key component of their Smart Edge Devices.  

Several Ebara pumps, including the ESR, EST, and EV Series, have built-in sensors to measure the various motors, heaters, cooling, wattage, etc. that makes pumps operate safely within their settings range.  Depending on the pump model, as many as 20 internal sensors can be monitored for both operational readings and pre-set alarms created by the pump circuits and systems.  

While the Tako app makes an ideal visualization of pump data and alerts, the only access to the internal Ebara pump sensors was via an RS232C connection that is normally associated with CRTs and modems in the computer age prior to the Internet.  Avimesa and Tako engineers teamed up to develop an interface running on a small Linux computer that translates between the pumps’ “old school” RS232C interface and the Avimesa Industrial Cloud superstructure to deliver reliable data and alerts to the Tako app on either a browser or smartphone.  This new approach to the interface on the Ebara dramatically reduces costs and installation time as the new Linux-based Tako Smart Edge Device will come with a plug-and-play cable to enable Ebara pumps within minutes of unpacking.

Avimesa invites beta test users to join our shared sensor network contest

24 days ago

$1,000, $500, $250 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes to be voted on by Avimesa investors, for the most innovative shared sensor configuration

We are pleased to announce our latest feature addition -- shared sensors, with a corresponding contest to award the most innovative use case.  The new shared sensor feature enables users and their companies to optionally make their sensors publicly readable to all or a subset of the public.  For example, a fire department could install safety sensors around a community and make the readings available, in real-time, to businesses and user groups in the community. Another example would be water quality and level readings that can be integrated into other sensor readings for water-side businesses.  There is no cost to join the Avimesa Shared Sensor network and readings from up to three shared sensors do not count against the free 2,000 messages (i.e. sensor readings) that come with all Avimesa.Live accounts.  

Avimesa intends to make shared sensors a key community-driven component of Avimesa marketing in 2022.  There are almost an unlimited number of applications for businesses, municipalities, and universities to add shared sensors ranging from methane and air quality to vibration on key pieces of infrastructure such as bridges.  Agriculture, ranging from specialty gardens to large-scale farms, are another great use case for the shared sensor network.  Our CEO is making a shared sensor config for water quality in similar locations at Mission and San Diego bays in San Diego.  While he won’t be eligible for the contest, water quality and levels is a key issue of concern.

To sign up for the contest, simply sign up for the Avimesa.Live beta.  You will automatically receive a notification when your account is ready to add shared sensors. Sign-up acceptance is throttled based on the number of pending sign-ups as Avimesa gears up its technical support for this marketing program.  After the close of the StartEngine campaign, investors will receive a link to pictures/movies of shared sensors and will get one vote per share of the most innovative shared sensor configuration.  Investors that are also Avimesa.Live beta users may not vote for their own shared sensor configuration.

Software Update: Perimeter-Aware feature commercially available.

28 days ago


We just updated Avimesa.Live to include the commercial deployment of our perimeter-aware feature.  Perimeter awareness lets you associate a changing distance with a sensor reading.  In our campaign video on the startengine.com/avimesa landing page, you will see two examples of combining sensors and perimeter awareness:  (i)  “Is the forklift unattended while the bay door is open?” and (ii) “Is the gate opening after hours while the guard is in her rounds?”  

In the forklift example, Avimesa.Live is aware of the relative position of the forklift to an Avimesa Gadget Gateway and if it senses a combination of an open bay door with an unattended forklift nearby, it can send an alert if that condition remains for more than a preset number of seconds or minutes.  In the gate example, the guard has an inexpensive BLE tag clipped to her belt so Avimesa.Live can see when she is not in the guardhouse and on her rounds.   

The new perimeter aware feature has now been enhanced to allow role management and more granular control of sensing the distance of a BLE tag from the Avimesa Gadget Gateway.  This new feature enhancement is available NOW, at no additional cost, to all Avimesa.Live users and beta testers.  Additionally, the developer documentation is being updated to allow unlimited customization of this important feature.

Software Updates - New Customizable Dashboard Launched

about 1 month ago

We recently rolled out a new addition to Avimesa.Live, our web application for visualizing data, setting alerts, managing devices. Now users are able to create a customizable dashboard with charts and reading displays that are draggable, resizable, and configurable. This feature is live right now and we can't wait for our users to try it out.
