Smart Bin Sensor

Our Cloud-Based Optical Fill Level Sensor

The WasteHero Smart Bin Sensor is engineered and designed to ensure the most accurate measurements possible. Our unique smart bin sensor is the only one on the market, which offers both optical sensing technologies for fill level measurements. The fill-level data is then visualized and utilized in WasteHero’s platform ensuring efficient route planning.

Our waste sensor is engineered and designed to ensure the most accurate measurement possible. The cloud-based IoT fill-level sensor can be mounted in any type of waste container. It is rugged, water-resistant and offers a long battery life. With our solution, you can avoid the collection of overfilled or half-empty trash bins. WasteHero smart bin sensor enables cities and waste management companies to increase their collection efficiency by up to 50%.

Benefits of optical flow sensor

Easy Integration

Small size and ABS material of the devices make them easily attachable to all types of bins. Thanks to the quick mounting procedure, it is also easy to replace sensors, if that is at any time required.

High durability

Long battery life, withstanding extreme environments and no requirement of special maintenance. These features of WasteHero smart bin sensors make them suitable for all use cases, regardless of your location and weather condition.

Suitable and sustainable

Optical sensing technology gives many referring measurement points in the container, which allows much better evaluation of the fill-level for all type of waste. You can use it for solids (mixed, paper, metal, glass, etc.) as well as for liquids.

By using the smart bin sensor you can eliminate the waste overflows, reduce numbers of collection vehicles needed, and hence, decrease the CO₂ footprint.

Frequently asked questions

Our smart bin sensors can be mounted in both, new and existing bins. We provide mounting options for various types of waste containers to ensure that more waste is being handled in a more efficient way.
The mounting of the smart bin sensors can be done in less than 5 minutes, in various types of waste containers. Thanks to the quick mounting procedure, it is also easy to replace sensors, if that is at any time required.
Yes, our smart bin sensors are designed and engineered so that they can measure any type of waste, whether it may be mixed waste, paper, plastics, glass, liquid, clothing, electronics or metal.
No need to worry. WasteHero optical flow sensors use wireless IoT networks (Sigfox, LoRaWAN), which makes data transfer possible under very limited networks.
The batteries in our device were engineered to last over 10 years. However, battery life is dependent on the frequency of measurements.
It is very easy and takes less than 3 minutes. To attach the sensor to the container you need to drill 4 bolts using electric tools. We include the manual to guide you through the process of installation.
WasteHero solution doesn’t have any limits about the location. Smart bin sensors can be used in every country.
No, it does not. Our device uses optical sensing as it is much more precise and reliable in measurement than the ultrasonic technology.
