Enhance the living quality of your residents


Breaking the isolation

Facility managers have to deal with continuous increases in energy rates, while Building owners sets reduction goals. Until now facility managers have not a solution to benchmark usage and consumption for multiple equipment and different manufacturers.

Facility managers are in general need of an affordable, easy-to-use monitoring and control service. Up until now, there was not an integrated solution capable of managing security, safety, comfort, and energy with a single application

A system capable of balancing air quality with energy consumption, detecting flooding and fire, sensing motion, and controlling temperature, humidity and luminosity, provides the tool for a facility manager to ensure the facility is managed even during closed hours. Owners and managers want to be notified of any drastic variation in these values and intrusion after business hours and also compare different facilities

Facility managers and owners have to handle regulation related to Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), all buildings should be equipped with monitoring and alarm systems. Deployment of gas sensors in common areas like elevator shafts, stairs, garages, etc., ensures the facility managers and residents can receive notifications of gas leaks instantly on their mobiles.

Public Sector

The government have ambitious plans to reduce CO2 emissions and therefore needs to improve energy efficiency in public buildings. However, city managers have little to no information about each public office energy usage. Therefore it is very difficult to identify inefficiencies and take actions for improvement.

Since air conditioning is the biggest energy user in buildings in India monitoring and controlling their power is essential. Installations of smart meters for gas and power, connected with smart thermostats allows the delivery of Key Performance Indicators allowing them to benchmark performance between the public offices. City managers receive alerts when consumption is too high and they can also set intelligent heating schedules so civil servants stay comfortable, but at the same time save money and reduce emissions.

Student safety and good air quality are fundamental for providing a suitable learning environment. Many classrooms offer sub-optimal conditions during winter months, with humidity and CO2 concentrations well above recommended levels, but there is no live monitoring to alert the caretakers or teachers.

With affordable, easy-to-install sensors and actuators together with the business logic of FacilitySense a complete safety and environmental control system can be created, including smoke, fire and flooding detectors. Using intelligent controls the system automatically adjusts the climate system before humidity levels get too high. It also sends SMS alerts when smoke is detected, or when CO2 concentrations are reaching dangerous levels, and automatically turns on the school’s ventilation system to circulate air.

Residents

What you cannot see cannot hurt you is an old saying, but very applicable to energy and environmental monitoring, unless users can see money being spent or warnings pop up. Setting up an apartment to monitor the energy will enlighten the residents, and getting them involved to use shutters etc that will not only lower the residents cost, but also affect the facility as a hole. With the increased security the residents will also feel more comfortable, and will have an improved quality of life.

FacilitySense engages residents, facility managers, and owners/ organizations; every stakeholder is able to view what is important and become a a part of the connected society.
