Building Automation

Building automation is the control of the lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical and access control of a building through a central system. The objective of building automation is to improve the comfort, efficiency, security, and cost of maintaining and managing a building.

HVAC - Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning

HVAC technology is used to control the environment inside homes, buildings, and vehicles. HVAC is designed to provide and maintain comfortable and acceptable indoor air quality with respect to temperature, humidity, bacteria, oxygen replenishment and air pressure.

Construction

IoT is used in the construction sector to track and streamline processes, reduce waste, increase site and worker safety, achieve building compliance, monitor supplies, machinery, tools and lower the cost of construction.

Tool Management

IoT is used to monitor the theft, misappropriation, and maintenance of tools on construction sites. Equipping tools with IoT sensors can help locate lost, stolen, or misplaced tools and increase the productivity of a construction site by monitoring the movements, environments and use of tools to prevent downtime.

Equipment Monitoring

IoT-enabled tracking sensors are used to monitor the location and usage of heavy construction equipment in real-time to prevent theft, improve operational efficiency and monitor their usage for predictive maintenance and billing.

More about this company

Despite being under-digitised, construction moves fast: thousands of new worksites pop up every day. Building projects grow and change constantly. The same tools used to work on an office block in the morning could be building a water feature by the afternoon.

It’s an industry that deserves the efficiency, safety, and sustainability that IoT offers. But many construction companies lack the time, resources, or expertise to get started.

We’re here to fix that.

We help businesses optimise processes, enhance decision-making, increase revenue, and more through custom-built IoT and mobile connectivity solutions, available across 185 countries and 960 networks.

Founded in 2015, we’re a team of creators and tech lovers who believe things work better connected. We’re UK-based, but hail from all over the world.

Like our namesake—the supercontinent that connected the world before separating into the continents of today—we’re connecting everything.

Site Perimeter Monitoring

IoT enabled site monitoring sensors and cameras are mainly used on construction sites to detect unauthorised entry and exit. They can also record jobsite conditions to prevent accidents and maintain compliance.

Company operating in this Application type:

Worker Safety

In construction, safety is a high priority. IoT can enhance safety efforts on construction sites by embedding sensors in protective equipment and using wearables to prevent injury by alerting workers of potential risks, marking hazards, and sending real time safety alerts site wide.

Company operating in this Application type:

Things

HVAC Equipment

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment such as heat pumps, furnaces, air conditioners, thermostats, ventilation, filtration.

Lighting

Smart lighting devices such as smart light bulbs, adaptors, occupancy sensors, motion detectors and daylight sensing.

Elevators

Smart elevator solutions such as remote management, data statistics, fault alarming, predictive maintenance, vibration sensors, advertisement placement and emergency response.

Escalators

Smart escalator solutions such as predictive maintenance, performance data, virtual receptionist, engine monitoring, vibration, and temperature sensors.

Video Cameras

Examples of video camera solutions for buildings are theft detection, object detection to maintain safety regulations, data analytics to improve security processes and systems.
