Shelt.in was founded in 2018 and is using cutting-edge technology to ensure the safety of firefighters. Thibaut is the Lead Tech of Shelt.in leading the development team and establishing the technical vision.
Shelt.In offers portable connected equipment (IoT) that aims to reduce the risk of firefighters' accidents by monitoring their activities in operations. The device monitors health and environmental data such as vital health indicators and geographical position. Through a remote dashboard, the Fire Chief uses the data gathered to make decisions in full knowledge of hazardousness for their team.
The key feature of Shelt.in is quickly detecting high-risk situations (like a fallen firefighter’s) through the use of Artificial Intelligence.
Shelt.in and their partner, SDIS 06, are currently conducting R&D in an experimentation phase. During this phase, their data models and architecture need to be quickly built and change quickly in even shorter time frames.
Shelt.in is delivering vital key data. The team quickly assessed their need to find a CMS capable of delivering content with consistent processing speed: as firefighters lives are potentially on the line, the shortest processing delay and software hyperreactivity are compulsory.
Before discovering Strapi, Thibaut and his team had only a simple API to check for tests but quickly felt limited. Because the API was entirely developed in NodeJS, they looked for a CMS using the same technology. Strapi’s intuitiveness and customizability allowed to precisely meet the needs of the fire brigade.
Since they started to use the solution, the team has been able to set up a high-performance deployment environment, therefore increasing the productivity and velocity of the project. The Shelt.in platform is now ready to meet the requirements of firefighters.
As advice to Strapi new users, Thibaut says : ”Don't be afraid if everything works the first time...! More seriously, the integration is very easy so you should give it a try without hesitation.”
Strapi convinced us, not only because of its intuitiveness but also because of its ability to be customized to precisely meet the needs of our customers: the fire brigade.
