It’s all about intelligence
Constructing and operating successful smart buildings is about more than just getting data from connected devices. While it may be obvious that data is not the same as intelligence, converting data from the Internet of Things (IoT) into actionable insights is a serious challenge for most companies seeking to build a smart building. Building managers require a deep analysis of a huge amount of data in real-time. To be effective at finding insights to achieve operational efficiencies, building managers require customizable dashboards detailing energy usage and sensor data to monitor (and ultimately enhance) facility costs and efficiency. It requires a clear understanding and presentation of what the data means.
We fully integrate PoE communication platform, not only connects devices, fixtures, and systems into one central location for granular control, but also connects devices to a powerful AI-ready cloud analytics option. The result is a customizable dashboard that details energy usage and sensor data while providing real actionable intelligence for facility managers or owners. This enables both users and vendors to tap into the control platform to create their own custom smart building controls, settings and action sets, and retrieve powerful surveillance and monitoring data for planning at unprecedented levels of control.
The key is that Igor is a cutting-edge software company addressing the application of the IoT to smart building infrastructure. The team looked at the primary challenges in implementing Power over Ethernet into smart buildings and discovered three major issues:
1. Wrong data – not collecting the right data, enough data, or high-quality data to make accurate predictions.
2. Wrong tools – not having the right tools or computing infrastructure to analyze the volume, velocity or variety of data.
3. Wrong people – not having the people skills necessary to transform raw data into actionable insights.
To address these challenges, we utilize machine learning in its smart building platform. Machine learning is an artificial intelligence technology that provides systems with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Even Igor's industry-leading software is just beginning to tap the possibilities of artificial intelligence. However, we are committed to an AI future and has already built in the capabilities needed to support AI programming through the use of advanced machine learning capabilities.
1. Energy optimization – fine-tuning specific fixtures to maintain illumination levels based on ambient lighting conditions or specific tasks.
2. Occupant experience – recognize voice commands or gestures and have the building respond according to the occupant’s intentions.
3. Anomaly detection – detect and report unusual activities within the building.
Machine learning allows for our software to learn, on its own, patterns and opportunities to improve building efficiencies and safety. It's through machine learning that buildings can fully optimize the efficiencies promised through PoE technology.
The Light Miracle
The Solar Tree is an urban/suburban outdoor luminaire who’s innovative design combines nature and the latest generation of photovoltaic technology. This system was created to capture the beauty of nature and the power of the sun’s energy, providing superb LED outdoor lighting, safety and security. The Solar Tree consisting of “structural steel branches that create a nest for the solar panels at the top of the tree and petals" that assist in the light‘s direction. This versatile lighting structure can be installed with or without the seating pedestal and used in a variety of ways to include park areas, bike/walking pathways, street lighting, outdoor seating areas to include residential patio and pool areas, lawns and landscaping projects. The Solar Tree can be custom painted to match your desired color scheme.
