IoT is performing perfectly as a remote monitoring solution for all industries such as tracking assets via GPS or environmental meter reading remotely. Businesses are using this technology to optimize their operations and thus are reducing operational cost. IoT is the best monitoring solution and IoT data give better insights to optimize the business operations effectively and it helps to find more ways to enhance businesses, expanding into new horizons and creating new sources of revenue growth.
Why Smart Buildings are using the Internet of Things:
Smart building management systems allow building management and tenants to monitor, maintain and manage the electrical, electromechanical and mechanical functions like Lighting, Security, and HVAC within a building structure. The total process involves sensors, software, a network installation and a cloud-based data solution. The building management system functions include monitoring and controlling of heating, air conditioning, ventilation, lighting, security and other safety operations. But the biggest requirement of a building management system is energy, if all the functions have the ability to use low energy and use low-powered networks and inexpensive sensors, these can help to keep smart building costs down, therefore they can save money.
Typically a large buildings management faces issues with HVAC systems because it is very expensive and requires customized installation and programming. Finally, the operational cost remains low and owners will get returns on investment.
However, traditionally such high-cost solutions are difficult to adapt small to medium-sized buildings. This is the main reason the world’s leading technologies are changing to the “Internet of Things” and they are being used to drive down the cost of Building Automation System. The IoT mainly describes a cost-effective solution, that saves energy and improves productivity in almost all types of commercial buildings, such as retail stores, manufacturing factories, and office spaces.
IoT solution gives building managers full customizable, flexibility and keeps smart building structure alterations to a minimum, while providing the ability to monitor and control multiple building systems at once, and optimizing building performance within minimal operational cost, which is not possible with human monitoring. Enabling the building managers to monitor the building remotely speed-up the precious decision making and they will have the ability to receive the alerts and notifications on their smartphones or any other wearable devices like smart watches.
IoT has been enabling billions of devices monitored and controlled remotely, and an open architecture, which invites developer participation to provide more innovative solutions. It creates a rich ecosystem and reduced costs through economies of scale. BlueApp.io also bringing the power of IoT solutions to many industries, which reduces the operational cost for clients businesses.
