On 7 July, Kristiine Centre will be the first in Estonia to replace automatic stations with novel smart stations with remote monitoring and management capability which will ensure uninterrupted serviceability of the stations and significantly reduce the maintenance costs.
‘Kristiine Centre is taking the welfare and safety of the visitors very seriously, which is why we have decided to install ten new generation hygiene stations in the centre. This will ensure that they are always functional for the visitors to use,’ said Helina Leif, Marketing and Communication Manager of Kristiine Centre.
‘This development from the category of the Internet of things or IoT will enable the station to communicate with the central administration interface, sending the information and commands necessary for the functioning of the device,’ said Kristjan Arunurm, Marketing Manager of CleanHand OÜ. ‘For example, in the near future, we will be testing an additional application of this development which will also automate ordering of disinfection liquid so that the client will not need to worry about that. In addition to the above-mentioned, the ZÄP stations remain contactless, environment-friendly, and independent from mains electricity.’
CleanHand OÜ, the creator of the ZÄP trademark, is a start-up established in 2018 which is included in the Tehnopol Startup Incubator growth programme. SmartStuff and Elisa have provided technological support to ZÄP.
Roughly 125 stores operate on the 43,700 square metres of commercial premises of Kristiine Centre. The centre is visited by 20,000 people per day.
