Internet of Things: Making Commercial Buildings Smarter

By Construction Tech Review | Friday, August 02, 2019

IoT solutions for smart buildings enable residents to connect and automate home operations with technology and energy systems to transform the way they manage their facility

FREMONT, CA: IoT is reimagining every aspect of a building, from construction to habitation to management.  Internet of Things data is used to make informed decisions to optimize the experience of occupants. With asset optimization, better facilities management, and occupant safety, smarter buildings can streamline the resident experience, business processes, and expand profits.

• Asset Digitization

IoT facilitates asset digitization by capturing granular data from those critical assets in the building, including temperatures, fan speeds, vibration, flow rates, compressor run times, total energy consumption, etc. These measures can be gathered to enable key operational insights. Besides, IoT connects occupants to critical assets in a building. When aggregated across the entire building, IoT delivers asset digitization across the whole building. Asset digitization facilitates platform access for real-time visualizations in the cloud platform. IoT technology will also play a key role in bringing mature cloud infrastructures to existing buildings.

• Energy Efficiency

IoT will continue to produce significant results in the quest for energy efficiency. An alarmingly low percentage of buildings today have access to any form of real-time energy reporting, and majority buildings continue to rely on the manual meter reading. IoT offers access to real-time monitoring of electric, water, and gas meters and can go beyond the main meter to provide real-time wireless sub-metering that enables granular energy monitoring of individual tenant spaces and critical assets.

• Security

IoT capabilities can be incorporated into surveillance cameras, smart locks, credential readers, and other physical security devices. The same geofencing barriers target customers in specific locations can also apply to IoT-enabled locks and access track. An invisible barrier that alerts occupants of breaches lets the security staff respond quickly.

Implementing smart building technology the right way, approaching the IoT project with a focus on solving problems and using tools to achieve a goal can always help in the long run.
