Sensors for ‘smart buildings’


A large proportion of energy expenditure in the pre-big data world relied on very rough estimates of requirements – heating and cooling, ventilation, lighting, and so on. But as sensors monitor precise usage, BDA can be used to make much more accurate recommendations based on the


data gathered, substantially cutting waste. Industry estimates suggest that the number of data endpoints generated by commercial buildings is in the billions, and public buildings are not far behind. As such, the knowledge that can be derived from these enormous data sets can drive dramatic facility performance

installation of sensors to create ‘smart buildings’ equip managers with


tools to assess many variables that determine efficiency: space demand and utilisation, energy usage and cost,


air quality, temperature variations, and numerous others. One of the primary use- cases of these technologies is automating processes. For example, they can help absorb the repetitive – but important – tasks that facility managers currently spend much time of their time on to ensure compliance with health and regulatory standards. New systems can automate fault
