Smart buildings and the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is forever changing the way people think, react, and want at their fingertips. IoT technology dives deeper into inter-connected data, information and sensing habits of objects and humans with the ability to transmit data without human-to-computer or human-to-human interaction.
This data is collected, assessed and then reacted to by IoT technology – from vehicles that let you know you are running late for a meeting suggesting you take the meeting in the car, to activating your home security system.
IoT technology is also getting more common in residential buildings, although there is still a huge untapped potential connecting buildings to the cloud via smart IoT technology. For building management, IoT enables productivity capabilities needed to increase energy efficiency and decrease carbon footprint. Integrating it into building systems gives property owners and managers, as well as energy companies, more ability to monitor and adjust energy use and emissions seamlessly and instantly.
Buildings, Utilities and Cities are interconnected and there are opportunities for value creation within each bucket and in the integration between them. Since Egain launched in 2003, we have developed IoT solutions that lower energy usage and emissions by giving our clients real-time, data-rich analytics about the building structure, external impact, and improved indoor climate.
Integrated AI-based software automatically visualizes and optimizes energy usage in buildings. Our team of dedicated experts helps companies decipher the data and use the insights to improve the accuracy of temperature adjustments and increase energy efficiency.
