Wednesday 2 November
3pm-4pm Resene Seminar Series

Offices and commercial spaces are undergoing a smart transformation connecting and linking HVAC, lighting, environmental sensors, and security and safety equipment, along with external inputs such as the smart grid and weather.

User-driven and automated business processes can now leverage real-time IoT information from people, systems and devices to maximize resource efficiency, reduce cost and risk, and increase visibility across all operations. 

Part of solving IoT challenges is to provide a new range of LoRaWAN enabled sensors for the Smart Metering, Intelligent Building and Smart City market. This new solution will allow building managers to achieve higher comfort, greater energy efficiency in monitoring energy and water consumption.
