Smart Building Stimulus Thoughts (#2)

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 goal of [of the Smart Building Stimulus] is to upgrade and improve many buildings so they are healthier and less costly to operate..."  What about making buildings safer? Adding a SalamanderReservoir is a pretty easy way to do both! #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 ...

forensics is not the future!

great article (and accompanying video) about the state of property management. Forensics is not the future! We couldn't agree more - don't wait until your sprinkler systems fail from freezing - get notified immediately when they start getting into the 'danger zone' with a Salamander Reservoir! full article here: propmodo.com/for-building-security-to-get-to-the-next-level-it-needs-to-be-proactive-not-forensic/ Put a Salamander in your system today! #buildings #salamanderreservoir #energysavings #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT #IOTtuesday #IOTuesday #proptech #putasalamanderinthesystem #salamanderreservoir #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart ...

Our 4-Pronged Approach: #4 Risk Reduction

We Reduce Risk! Owning real estate can be very high-risk. Wouldn't it be nice to be taking precautionary measures to know of issues before they become problems? Direct communication from the Salamander Control System can solve that piece of the puzzle for you: we let you see into the unknown of your pipes. You think they're safe, but are you sure...?

Our 4-Pronged Approach: #3 Energy Savings

We Can Save Energy Dollars! Owners have an obligation (by NFPA) to keep heat in sprinkler rooms above 44°. When property managers are cranking up heat in unoccupied spaces to 65°, 68° or 71°, that's an unnecessary expenditure of energy. Let the Salamander Control System only initialize heat when it's needed; not when people think it's going to be cold! Use our smart technology to save energy and money!

Our 4-Pronged Approach: #2 Asset Protection

We Protect Buildings. Sprinkler discharges can cause more damage than fires. By ensuring that your life safety systems are working as designed, we add value by protecting your real estate assets: commercial, residential, multifamily and hospitality. By notifying ownership & management of potential pipe freezing conditions, we help to protect your asset(s) 😉 That's what Protection by Connection is all about.

Things we take for granted…

we take for granted that clean, pure water will come out of our taps. we take for granted that our sprinkler systems will work in the event of a fire. with a Salamander Reservoir, we can only help building owners see problems within their sprinkler systems before they become the stuff of nightmares! rely on data; not on gut feeling (or ignorance)! #buildings #salamanderreservoir #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT #IOTtuesday #IOTuesday #pipefreeze #preventpipefreeze #proptech #putasalamanderinthesystem #salamanderreservoir #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart ...

A Building Manager’s Worst Nightmare..?

Headline from Propmodo, "Vacancy is a Building Manager's Worst Nightmare" There are worse things out there, and i'm thinking of compromised sprinkler systems. could you imagine dealing with knowing a sprinkler pipe is frozen a day before an event instead of a day after an event?! With the Salamander Reservoir, you can be alerted to problems before they become the stuff of nightmares! original article link here #buildings #covid19 #salamanderreservoir #energysavings #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT #IOTuesday #pipefreeze #preventpipefreeze #proptech #putasalamanderinthesystem #salamanderreservoir #sprinklerssavelives #thefutureissmart ...

Installation: as easy as 1-2-3!

Salamander Reservoir: Installation on a Wet Sprinkler System Step 1: Preparation for Installation Recommended installation begins after a sprinkler technician has installed a nipple, ball valve and plug to receive the Salamander Reservoir. Step 2: Attach the Salamander Reservoir Leave the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir in the closed position and attach the Salamander Reservoir. Be sure to leave the Salamander Reservoir’s ball valve slightly ajar before beginning Step 3. Step 3: Bleed the Air from the Reservoir Slowly open the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir about a quarter of a turn. This will allow the reservoir to fully fill with water, and bled out any air from the system. Once water has bled out of the bleed valve for a few seconds, close the ball valve on the Salamander Reservoir, and screw in the ball valve plug. The Reservoir is now full of water, and at equal pressure to the rest of the sprinkler system. Step 4: Final Positioning Fully open the ball valve between the system and the Salamander Reservoir and ensure connectivity between the sensor and the gateway. #buildings #salamanderreservoir #facilitymanagers #fireprotection #IoT #IOTtuesday #salamanderreservoir #sprinklerssavelives #proptech #putasalamanderinthesystem ...
