Smart & Connective

Our solutions for tertiary buildings

Tertiary buildings, both public and private, share similar concerns in terms of energy savings, costs savings and CSR policy. These issues are all the more relevant today, now that the Décret Tertiaire is being implemented.

Main benefits

1. Based on room occupancy

Your energy saving scenarios can be activated by real time occupancy of your premises. You can decide to switch on/off lights, AC or heating when a room is occupied/empty. Knowing the state of occupancy/vacancy of different areas can also allow you to manage and organize wide open spaces for coworking purposes, meeting rooms, cafeterias…

2. Simple and cost-effective solution

Standard BMS (Building Management System) are usually made of heavy equipment that costs 30 to 60 euros per square meter. Today it is easy to find new and simpler BMS (lighter equipment, IoT oriented instead of operating on the main system) for a cost between 12 and 20 euros per square meter. Smart & Connective offers the same possibilities and will be the first IoT solution costing less than 10 euros per square meter!

3. Fast and significant energy savings

As part of a CSR policy or in order to reach the goals set by the Décret Tertiaire, tertiary buildings need an efficient solution quickly. Smart & Connective will allow you to achieve 25 to 30% energy savings.

4. Predictive maintenance

Your Smart & Connective solution allows you to spot lower performance of any device before it even impacts your building’s operations. You are able to detect at a glance any malfunctioning equipment to warn your maintenance staff. You can therefore act faster and guarantee a longer life for your installations.

Case study – Tertiary Buildings  

Mark is the headmaster in a high school with 350 students. Concerned about energy saving, he automated lighting and heating according to a precise schedule because he realized some rooms remained lit during the night while others were so heated that teachers had to open a window in the morning! Only using these simple settings (no need to invest in new heaters), he observed a 30% cut on his energy bill within the first month.

Recently, because of the Coronavirus, he decided to put an OMNIS sensor at the cafeteria’s door to comply with sanitary measures (4m2 per person).

Jane is the CEO of a communications company. She and her 50 employees work in a modern building downtown. The skylight in the open space gives all its charm to the building but in the summer it can get really hot, forcing them to use the AC at full speed, even during the night. With her Smart & Connective solution, she can decide when the blinds will automatically be closed (when the temperature reaches 23°C) and when the AC should be automatically switched on (to keep the temperature between 22 and 24°C).

Jane also decided to put a sensor under each desk because telecommuting has left enough empty desks to rent them out to freelancers. The sensors will collect data and she will instantly know which desk is available.
