What Is a Smart Building?
Smart buildings are facilities that leverage connected technology, devices, data analytics and automation to monitor, evaluate processes and conditions and mitigate various energy waste, trespassing and vandalism.
Through automation, sensors and remote capabilities, smart buildings provide greater convenience for facilities managers, increase the comfort and safety for building occupants, create higher energy efficiency and reduce facility operating costs. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes pervasive, smart buildings are becoming integral components in larger systems integrations like smart cities that deliver greater benefits to a broader constituent base.
Create an Efficient Smart Building Ecosystem with IoT
Building owners and managers are always looking for new ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency. By leveraging data from connected devices, you can streamline and automate building management to reduce operating costs, improve occupancy services and minimize a building’s impact on the environment.
Telit-enabled IoT solutions make it easy and affordable to monitor and optimize all systems in buildings with wireless modules, data orchestration platforms and a state-of-the-art cellular network designed for the IoT from the ground up.
IoT Applications for Smart Buildings
Security and Surveillance
Prevent loss of critical assets with real-time monitoring through secure and reliable remote surveillance that lets you know when people or assets are at risk. Live video and remote security features help facility managers safeguard people, assets and buildings more efficiently and with greater visibility from any location.
Monitor and optimize your building’s systems to match occupancy patterns without compromising comfort levels. With the transformation of the workplace in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, experts expect less available space, increasing utility costs and higher occupancy demands to put pressure on facility managers to operate building systems and processes more efficiently and effectively.
Connected IoT devices deliver around-the-clock monitoring and real-time data analytics that facility managers need to make better, more informed decisions. By enabling predictive maintenance, these connected solutions mitigate or even prevent outages and shutdowns.
Predictive maintenance allows facility managers to maximize building use for greater efficiency and the best return on investment while providing a safer and more comfortable experience for occupants, including help with local ordinance compliance related to COVID-19 and its long-lasting effects on preparedness.
Enable homeowners to optimize systems, such as lighting, utilities and HVAC, to reduce consumption and save money. As IoT becomes pervasive in buildings and upgraded residences, homeowners benefit from smart devices that create a more convenient, comfortable and less costly living space. Simultaneously, these capabilities create new revenue-generating opportunities for homeowner service providers, such as homeowners’ insurance, warranties and maintenance contracts.
