While it is well understood that digital sensors and management systems make it easy to monitor heating, lighting and ventilation systems, data collected from sensors can also be used in much more innovative ways. And as we move out of the current crisis, the use of IoT to make buildings ‘smart’ will enable building operators and owners to better engage with occupants, keeping them informed, safe and productive in a number of interesting new ways.
Smart building technology may still be evolving, but at its core, any adoption needs to improve business performance at the organisational level. The very best smart buildings harvest vast amounts of data from as many different sources as possible – building systems and sensors are capable of providing huge volumes of operational data regarding status, usage levels, maintenance needs and more.
GS Technologies Ltd (LON:GST), through its subsidiary, EMS Wiring Systems Pte. Ltd, provides services in the “Smart Building” sector. Smart Building is a diverse term that refers to the technological capabilities of buildings and other work place facilities.
