IoT Builds FM (Facility Management) Heroes

Propmodo published an interesting article from Lauren Long about how IoT Builds Facility Management Heroes, citing specifically: "Collecting and Monitoring Data from IoT makes buildings more efficient and conserves energy" "IoT allows a building to evolve and self-upgrade by enabling the building to become dynamic based on real-time requirements" "IoT eliminates the need for expensive wiring and installation so that the price of the smart hardware is often no longer a variable when implementing an IoT network into existing system" Can simply implemented without disrupting the current infrastructure and enhancing operations, resulting in increased equipment lifetime and decreased maintenance" By integrating IoT fully into HVAC systems, energy usage can be more accurately detected and can the US can meet its (Paris Climate Accord) goals. ...for all of those reasons, and more, please #putasalamanderonthesystem! Don't let the sprinkler room be an overlooked area for maintenance, efficiency and energy conservation! Our device works on new or existing wet and dry sprinkler systems. full Propmodo article here: https://www.propmodo.com/iot-for-hvac-builds-fm-heroes/ ...

SenseWare Insights… (part 2)

Excerpts from their 10 IoT Smart Building Trends to Watch Out for in 2019 article (full article here) on Energy Efficiency Mere access to real-time submetering data will highlight clear inefficiencies in your buildings. You don’t necessarily need advanced analytics and algorithms. Mere access to a structured data-gathering platform for collection of granular energy usage in your building will provide valuable insights to all stakeholders. Most organizations have barely even begun to address energy efficiency. Energy efficiency will remain at the forefront of IoT Smart Building trends in 2019. Don't forget to about the small (and not-so-small!), incremental energy and financial savings from using heating wisely. Heat when the pipes call for heat; not based upon the air temperature. Realize those savings with the Salamander Temperature Control System! ...

SenseWare Insights… (part 1)

Excerpts from their 10 IoT Smart Building Trends to Watch Out for in 2019 article (full article here) on connectivity within building systems: "Many believe that Smart Buildings will provide greater connectivity in building systems. Certainly, buildings contain complex mechanical Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as control systems that can improve the comfort and productivity of building occupants. Smart Building technology can therefore provide the means for greater levels of integration between existing building systems. We expect that to increase as open standards continually pave the way. Smart Building technology will go far beyond those concepts, however. Smart Buildings feature an amazing capacity to connect people with technology. Not only will Smart Building technology assist in facility management efforts, but Smart Building technology will also provide valuable insights to the use and enjoyment of the building spaces. Energy efficiency, building sustainability, and workforce management efforts will all benefit." I couldn't have said it better, and it's within reach. Let the patented Salamander Reservoir and Control System technology connect you with your buildings. Your tenants will thank you for it! ...
