Taking buildings into the 21st century

Taking buildings into the 21st century

Taking buildings into the 21st century is  easier than ever before as a result of a new generation of IoT and Edge AI systems that bring sensors, cameras and control mechanisms together in a truly intelligent management ecosystem. This technology is not exclusive to the latest hyper-modern new builds; it’s just as applicable to any commercial, industrial or residential building because of the many advantages it affords, including reduced energy consumption, predictive maintenance alerts, increased security, greater occupant comfort and safety, and the more efficient utilization of building assets and services. All these drive costs done and less systems downtime (fewer complaints from building residents), thus an excellent ROI.

VIA at Embedded World 2019: enabling smart buildings with the VIA ARTiGO A820

enabling smart buildings

Smart buildings that are aware of and react to their environment can bring considerable benefits to both owners and users, including lower energy consumption, predictive maintenance alerts for HVAC equipment, greater security, improved occupant comfort and safety, and increased utilization of assets and services. This not only improves the immediate environment as the building actively and intelligently reacts to the ebb and flow of everyday life, but also acts to reduce energy consumption and positively contribute to the fight against climate change.

VIA offers a growing family of smart building solutions that enable hybrid processing between edge device and cloud and provide the flexibility required for addressing key issues, such as centralized management and data collection balanced against available bandwidth, time-to-action latency, connection reliability, security, and cost.
