What is Smart Building?
A Smart Building uses Internet of Things technologies to collect data and make decisions on the usage, maintenance, and operation of key building assets. Smart building concepts can be realized in residential homes, offices, commercial buildings, workplaces, factories, and warehouses. The main benefits of Smart Buildings, in turn, include:
- environmental control automation
- data-driven decisions
- optimized building management
- increased occupants' comfort.
How Do TEKTELIC Smart Building Solutions Work?
TEKTELIC Smart Building sensors gather data about the environment:
- CO2 level
- occupancy etc.
After that, the data is transmitted to the LoRaWAN® gateway and it forwards packets to the network server, which sends it to the application or E-Ink display, where users can visualize, analyze, and interpret data.
With our applications for indoor environment monitoring or room occupancy monitoring, hotel managers can get real-time updates on conference room availability or air quality and take suitable action:
- BREEZE CO2 Monitoring application
- LeapX application
- TEMPO Room Booking application
- LOCUS Real Time Location application
For example, if CO2 or temperature is too high, a building manager can regulate the HVAC system accordingly to ensure the best comfort level for guests. The same applies to the room booking application, hotel management can examine the most popular rooms, and peak times of usage and, based on this, add more guest rooms or conversely repurpose seldom used ones.
Additionally, room occupancy status, as well as environmental conditions, can be shown on the E-ink display for better comfort of the guests. They can be mounted on the wall near the meeting room entrances, so hotel visitors can check what the available time slots are and book the space right away. As for environmental conditions and air quality, such displays can be deployed inside the rooms, so guests can check it and adjust the HVAC system. Check out TEKTELIC devices:
