System designers, installers, integrators, and to some extent owner-operators, should be aware of the practical applications of IoT in buildings, as well as the range of available sensor types and technology options, as building systems continue the transition from on-site BMS to cloud-based software-as-a-service alternatives. This paper is not comprehensive. It is intended as an abbreviated topic summary of the intelligence that clients have available through our consultancy service.
Digitally enhanced infrastructure layers technologies that, together, allow a building to be monitored, managed, and controlled more efficiently. Buildings can be optimised with improvements to energy efficiency, safety, occupant satisfaction and wellness. Importantly, buildings will require technology solutions in order to bring themselves into compliance with net zero legislation, and with concomitant alterations to the tax regime.
