A GUIDE TO SMART BUILDING IOT APPLICATIONS
The traditional approach is to build the design, engineer and manage the process, consider the increasing economic pressures, and focus only on cutting costs.
IoT smart building applications, on the other hand, open new paths towards new sources of value for all the stakeholders in the real estate supply chain, from ownership to facility managers and users.
How do you move from saying to doing, to transform a simply connected building into a truly intelligent building?
Here are some tips:
• Start from your business goals
• Set up an IoT plan in steps: start light then scale
• Take care of interoperability and scalability
• Choose an IoT platform, accordingly

SMART BUILDING IOT APPLICATIONS:
FROM THE CONNECTED BUILDING TO THE INTELLIGENT BUILDING
New technologies, from IoT and BIM to artificial intelligence and augmented reality, are creating unprecedented opportunities in the real estate sector.
Among those, if well-orchestrated, we can include the possibility of new governance platforms of buildings that can autonomously make decisions that optimize the processes and the UX of the inhabitants.
For this reason, IoT in this industry is growing by 21%, overcoming the limits of traditional systems and introducing a new approach to the creation of new value from buildings.
INTELLIGENT BUILDINGS: A CASE OF SUCCESS
The office of the future is already here.
With Cefla and Schneider Electrics, we have created a smart building/smart working application that innovates traditional BMS systems with real-time IoT information. It brings benefits to the facility manager, who can have a holistic view of the buildings, and also the end users, who have a new tool for booking workstations and rooms.
Thanks to a scalable, open architecture based on the most up-to-date communication protocols, the integration between Schneider Electric and Trueverit via RestFul API has been particularly easy and rapid, to the benefit of the application time-to-market and customer satisfaction.

TRUEVERIT HELPED US TO BE MORE SMART
We partnered with Fabio Mazzotta, IT Sales Engineer of Cefla, to create more productive and efficient buildings, less environmental disruption, and greater sustainability.
This is the key challenge of applying IoT technologies to the building and real estate sector.
Interconnection of different sensors and systems, such as BMS, can lead to building diagnostics and decisions that optimize costs, performance, and customer experience.
SOME EMERGING SMART BUILDING APPLICATIONS
A building has complexity similar to that of a factory.
Once resolved, the problem of managing different protocols and integrating different types/sources of data into a single view offered enormous opportunities: from energy savings to individual customization of comfort.

SMART BUILDING: THE RECURRENT QUESTIONS
The management of large buildings, due to asset complexity, pressures on cost efficiency, and sensitivity to energy consumption, can no longer be addressed in a siloed way.
Traditional tools are too rigid. A new approach based on IoT interconnection is possible and advantageous.
Here are some key questions:
• Can equipment and systems of different nature be interconnected?
• Is it possible to add further connected devices once the building is operating?
• Can IoT be integrated inside traditional BMS software or BIM visualizations?
