Building Energy Monitoring Systems – Using the iOT to Improve Energy Efficiency
Knowing exactly how much energy is used within a building is the first step towards improving that building’s overall energy efficiency. And the best method to achieve significant insights into energy use is the deployment of a comprehensive building energy monitoring system equipped with cutting-edge Internet-connected sensors.
The IoT (Internet of Things) might seem to be just a popular buzzword for many, but it does make it possible for richer, higher resolution data gathered by sophisticated sensors to be translated into actionable information then shared by multiple applications for addressing different use cases. This ultimately reduces costs and enhances capabilities.
Deploying an array of smart sensors across buildings and using a centralized building energy monitoring system to manage and interpret the data will lead to a significant cut in operating costs, productivity improvements and a better level of comfort for occupants. In fact, detailed information about occupants’ presence, location, count, and activity can now be used to significantly optimize facility management. Hot desking, meeting rooms booking, optimized space planning, and energy savings are some of the immediate use cases.
HeatingSave Building Energy Monitoring Systems – the perfect solutions to enhance consumer awareness on consumption patterns
The HeatingSave Building Energy Monitor is a wireless management system that collects information from sensors placed in a building. It is unobtrusive and causes minimal disruption during installation. The system collects internal and external temperature data, along with information on how the heating system works and details of energy use. It also monitors the way a building is used in terms of its occupancy and the occupants’ activities and lifestyles.
Using a password protected standard WiFi connection, sensors can quickly be set up to review and quantitatively analyse the data with user-friendly software graphics, via a laptop, PC, mobile phone or tablet-based device.
A cable connection to the building router also enables data to be uploaded to HeatingSave’s cloud storage servers, where it can be analysed by sophisticated software. This provides a clear understanding of the real impact of energy efficiency measures, for example through pre-installation analysis and post-installation monitoring.
Building owners can access their energy usage details online to help them manage energy use more efficiently. This information is presented using a dashboard system that provides consolidated and drill down views of the energy use data.
