Eurotech will be attending the Facilities Show at London’s ExCel for the first time next week to demonstrate how the Internet of Things is set to revolutionise the Facilities and Asset management industry.
Our IoT and M2M solutions can utilise smart, multiservice gateways such as the ReliaGATE range utilising the Everyware Software Framework and our Everyware Cloud platform to consolidate data from your existing sensors and systems. These systems have traditionally worked in silo under one particular business area such as access, maintenance or environmental control. The use of IoT solutions means they can be connected via the Everyware Cloud allowing them to access and use each other’s data outputs for a consolidated, coherent approach to managing your assets.
This vast landscape of data can not only be captured and analysed in real time but can even prompt automated actions and responses to reduce downtime and increase efficiency across many areas of the business. For example, should temperature sensors detect that machinery is beginning to overheat, it can be automatically idled or its workload reduced to aid cooling whilst simultaneously alerting maintenance workers to a potential failure. If sensors reach a further level of urgency, access to that area can be restricted for safety until the issue can be addressed. This pre-emptive action means any emerging issue can be addressed swiftly and with minimum loss of productivity thereby ensuring business continuity and avoiding downtime of business critical processes.
Ambient temperature data can be monitored alongside people counting and desk occupancy technology to auto-adjust heating and air conditioning settings for maximum efficiency and to ensure utilities aren’t wasted on underused areas. This same data can be analysed to establish patterns of use for restroom and catering facilities and send a request for on demand cleaning and maintenance according to requirements instead of inefficient scheduled servicing.
The Internet of Things allows you to make decisions based on the best possible data and leverage this to get the most from systems and processes across all areas of the business. IoT for the Facilities and Asset Management industry can revolutionise the way we work and provide significant cost savings in the process. The removal of the need for expensive hardware integration or alignment across different business functions significantly reduces the cost and inconvenience of adopting an IoT solution for your business. The ability to capture the data produced by existing systems, then allow numerous other devices to subscribe to that data, means the implementation of an IoT solution can be quick and easy.
Bring along your IoT questions and challenges to us at stand R1450 so we can show you that you could be working smarter much sooner than you think.
