IoT Solutions for Real Estate
Making buildings smarter with unprecedented visibility and real-time analytics
Smarter systems and applications now govern the way many buildings operate, as insights are delivered on rooms, equipment and assets. This technology is crucial for visibility and operations across all types of estates.
Revolutionising building maintenance.
Historically, onsite methods were employed for the reporting of maintenance issues , making the maintenance problems and the reporting process costly and time-consuming.
With the use of real-time remote monitoring from any industry standard sensor or building management system, monitor all areas of an estate or building. From CO2 or temperature to energy usage or water flow sensors, you can start to gain a full picture of the overall efficiency of your estate, one building at a time.
Prioritise work orders using remote monitoring .
Having real-time data at your fingertips gives the facilities manager a clearer idea of what maintenance should be prioritised, using metrics such as energy usage and alarms to pinpoint what assets are costing the most money when not working to full capacity.
Maintenance schedules on buildings can then be automated and with the use of the Hark Platform, managers can be alerted in real-time to emerging maintenance issues.
Testing new assets.
New assets can be tested from day one of their installation. A new HVAC system, for example, can be tested to ensure its efficiency parameters from the moment its installed to ensure correct installation. Engineers can gain instant feedback on an asset’s performance, drastically reducing the lengthy, risky process of installing and replacing equipment.
Predicting faults across your real estate portfolio.
Not only are engineering teams given the power to prioritise their maintenance schedules, machine-learning powered anomaly detection gives insight into potential problems which can be fixed before they turn into a real problem.
Case Study:Revolutionising Retail
If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it would be the appreciation of ‘the knowing’, to enable us to plan responses and solutions which now seems like a distant memory. The pandemic has caused massive disruptions and companies have had to react quickly but as a consequence, some climate policies and implementing sustainable changes has fallen on the back burner.
Retail shrinkage is the destruction of profit margins through the loss of stock. Theft accounts for over £5.5 billion per year. This is hard for national chains to endure, but even harder for small convenience stores to cope with.
