Monitoring of indoor environment
Facility management is currently a hot topic. A number of organizations, be they in the private sector (banks, office buildings, shopping centers,…), or the public sector (schools, kindergartens, governmental authorities…), have discovered, that an efficient use of room occupancy can bring forth savings on building operation costs. The majority of indoor areas is currently equipped with comfort-enhancing technologies, such as heat sources, ventilation, air conditioning or humidifiers. They are mostly controlled according to a weekly time table or manually, via remote or other controller. In the age of the internet of things and with the use of available high-quality, affordable sensors, we can make the technologies control themselves efficiently and cost-effectively. All based on the information about the current climate in the given rooms and their occupancy.
What can be monitored
- Breathing air quality (CO2 amounts)
- Noise level
- Online overview of energy consumption
- Occupancy of offices, conference rooms
- Storage space quality
Measurements done by IoT technologies provide information basis for efficient control of ventilation, air-conditioning, service technologies. A sensor or sensors installed in a room provide us with an overview of current temperature, humidity, CO2 level, number of people in the room, noise, occupation of the seating capacity, open or closed doors and windows. All of this data can be displayed in a graph used for control and optimization of the indoor environment.
- Simple installation without the need for mains electricity supply
- Interior navigation
- Efficient use of space
- Minimization of energy consumption
- Collecting information for efficient control
- Information basis for optimization of energy expenses
- Significant cost savings
