A Building Automation System (BAS) has lulled many into a false sense of security. A commercial building controlled by a BAS could lay claim to being a “Smart Building.” All problems solved, right? Not so fast.
2019 has arrived with even higher expectations from smart building technologies. Growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) industry will accelerate in 2019. Far beyond an optional extra, IoT has become central to the plans for leveraging technological innovation in Commercial Real Estate (CRE). Are you ready to embrace the IoT Smart Building trends happening now?
Commercial Real Estate (CRE) has a notorious reputation for moving slowly. The longevity of commercial buildings as hard assets allows for such a mindset. Decades may come and go, but the buildings remain. Change has arrived, however. Asset digitization has disrupted the status quo and rendered it obsolete.
The network edge represents the playground of IoT. Imagine inexpensive wireless devices directly monitoring and/or controlling critical HVAC assets. Welcome to the new world of Operational Technology (OT).
The weather constantly changes. We expect it too. Our everyday experience revolves around knowing the latest forecast. We crave real-time visibility because of the impact on our lives. What does this reveal about IoT and the path to energy efficiency?
Are AI and IoT far off concepts? No. They exist now and produce measurable energy savings. I trust you care about increasing energy efficiency in your building. If so, then you’ll want to see some of the options available today.
Our previous blog peered into the future of HVAC, which reveals AI and IoT. Don’t ignore them as far off. They’re here now, changing the competitive landscape, and unlocking the HVAC market. We’ll show you how.
In Part One of this blog series, we explored the horizontal and vertical approaches to the IoT market. AI will play a large role in the era of Big Data. We have no doubt because the future of HVAC reveals AI and IoT.
We understand the need to manage the energy consumption in buildings. We’re okay with the concept. Too often, however, we question our own ability to accomplish such a task. Many have discomfort even discussing the plan . . . should one even exist. According to the United Nations, buildings account for 40% of global energy use, 30% of energy-related GHG …
Just as a reminder, HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. It is a system used to alter the ambient conditions within commercial buildings to maximize the comfort of occupants. HVAC systems operate on a simple principle. They pretty much either provide warm air or cold air for a room as needed by the occupants. The most easily relatable …
