Smart Building Stimulus Thoughts (#6)

Propmodo makes a case for a "Smart Building Stimulus Package" to reduce costs and improve health & wellness. It's worth considering, and some of the thoughts this article includes:   "Investing in smart technologies in buildings appears to be a winner to catalyze economic growth, respond to the pandemic, and set America up to remain a leader in building and facility technology for the future!

Smart Building Stimulus Thoughts (#5)

Propmodo makes a case for a "Smart Building Stimulus Package" to reduce costs and improve health & wellness. It's worth considering, and some of the thoughts this article includes the Sustainability Case:   "Just like investment in renewable energy, s smart building stimulus has a strong sustainability story. Buildings consume about 40% of all energy in the U.S. and generate about 1/3 of all carbon emissions. [...]   "Research from the U.S. Department of Energy labs notes that technology for energy management can save 10-20% of total consumption ... While it is difficult to quantity this benefit at scale, a stimulus investment in smart buildings would create a flywheel effect in which more data on productivity becomes available, pushing more building owners and operators to make subsequent investments."   Like our co-founder, Jim Seip is fond of saying, "in cars, fuel efficiency didn't happen in one fell swoop. It took years of refining and slight improvements over time added up to increase overall efficiency. Installing a Salamander are ways to implement one thing to save a little more energy! #buildings #covid19 #salamanderreservoir #drysprinklers #energysavings #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT #IOTtuesday #IOTuesday #pipefreeze #preventpipefreeze #propmodo #PropTech #putasalamanderinthesystem #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart full article at propmodo.com/the-case-for-a-smart-building-stimulus/ ...

Using IoT systems provides value…

From IoT For All: Value through Greater Efficiency and through Differentiation. Interesting observation: problems detected can be scheduled for off-hours, which reduces inconvenience for the tenant/occupant. A hidden savings, as problems are otherwise coupled with disruption, shutdown and other inconveniences.  Put a Salamander in your system today! article here: https://www.iotforall.com/powerful-and-new-iot-applications-in-real-estate-for-2020/ #buildings #salamanderreservoir #drysprinklers #energysavings #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT  #IOTtuesday #IoTForAll #pipefreeze #preventpipefreeze #putasalamanderinthesystem #salamanderreservoir #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart #protectionbyconnection ...

IIoT: Industrial Internet of Things (a primer)

The Industrial Internet of Things: Creating intelligent solutions to solve real-world problems by IEEE This article is a good introduction to the mechanics and benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT), and highlights include: reduce costs; improve efficiency; avoid downtime; getting connected; collecting data; the cloud; gateways; triggers.. With all of your data collected, transferred, and stored in the cloud, you can now use software to manipulate, analyze, and act on it. Triggers can be as simple as sending alerts when thresholds are met or as complex as modifying main or sub-system instructions, tasks, or processes based on several points of data. The actions can be manual or automated processes that help improve efficiency and productivity or aid in avoiding downtime or equipment breakdowns. full article here: https://spectrum.ieee.org/telecom/internet/the-industrial-internet-of-things #buildings #salamanderreservoir #drysprinklers #energysavings #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IEEE #IoT #IOTtuesday #IOTuesday #pipefreeze #preventpipefreeze #putasalamanderinthesystem #salamanderreservoir #security #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart ...
