Transforming Buildings Through IoT
Transforming Buildings Through IoT
What if the building we inhabit could proactively identify inefficiencies, reduce consumption, streamline operations and deliver personalized comfort through Internet of Things (IoT)?

In the past, the building that we inhabit is just consisted of pile of bricks. Now, the IoT is advancing a new breed of buildings that are smart, efficient and better aligned with the priorities of property owners and managers. IoT enables smart buildings to deliver more accurate and useful information for improving operations and providing the best experiences for occupants.

The number of connected devices that are in use worldwide now exceeds 17 billion, with the number of IoT devices at 7 billion according to data from IoT Analytics. Gartner forecasts that 20.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide by 2020, and a new Business Insider Intelligence study predicts that the IoT market will grow to over $3 trillion annually by 2026.

By embracing the concept of smart buildings, it promises better energy efficiency, occupant satisfaction, security and facility management without compromising on reliability and comfort. The key here is to adopt intelligent solutions that would leverage sensors, connected devices and data analytics in the building.

Although the number of connected devices continue to grow, the biggest barrier in adapting IoT is that most enterprises are not ready to take the plunge in innovating through IoT and they do not know what to do with the technology. Also, the cost for IoT solutions is prohibitively expensive for many. And if they do have plans for the IoT, there is concern over who will be leading these initiatives.

GoTensei (GTI), the IoT division of Tensei Philippines has developed intelligent Building Management System (iBMS) that simplifies how building talk to the server or cloud through sensors and gateways; and analyze building data to uncover new business insights capable of driving real value and greater performance that is customizable, cost-effective and secured. The iBMS aims to empower people and buildings to closely interact and gain deeper insights into the buildings performance. To ensure around-the-clock security to protect establishments and improve its operations, GTI has also developed intelligent Video Management System (iVMS) which features video surveillance, access control, parking system, alarm system, elevator control and more.

The buildings that we inhabit can be smarter than you think. Moving forward, IoT will drive every building system to have built-in, secure, interconnected intelligence. The possibilities are endless, and we encourage you to explore opportunities to digitally transform your workplace and business – just as we are on our own journey here in Tensei Philippines.
