Smart building readiness and infrastructure firm Andorix has leveraged Behrtech’s Mythings LPWAN platform to enable IoT services in commercial buildings in Canada managed by real estate company QuadReal Property Group.
The smart buildings will be enabled with occupancy detection, indoor environmental monitoring and leak detection applications.
Purpose-built for complex industrial and commercial IoT sensor networks, Mythings provides scalable wireless connectivity for critical IoT applications.
“Mythings has been fundamental to scaling IoT technologies across our portfolio that enable valuable and strategic use-cases,” said Thano Lambrinos, vice president at QuadReal. “The data generated from the various IoT devices empower us to better understand how our buildings are being interacted with and operated.”
Behrtech’s smart building initiatives include the deployment of Mythings-enabled presence detection sensors that monitor the traffic flow of people through each door and traffic density of common areas in multiple high-rise commercial buildings.
“As our IoT ecosystem continues to expand, the requirement for a robust connectivity infrastructure is critical,” said John Chung, vice president at QuadReal. “Mythings ensures the secure and reliable delivery of intelligent data across all asset classes.”
Environmental sensors will also be deployed to collect temperature, lighting and air quality. These real-time insights will help pinpoint underused spaces, optimise HVAC systems, and improve tenant comfort and productivity. Leak-detection sensors will be placed throughout each floor and alert management of leaks within minutes to reduce potential damage, enable predictive maintenance and improve sustainability.
“With IoT bringing new levels of visibility and efficiency to property management, we expect to see a significant increase in the adoption of smart building applications in 2020,” said Albert Behr, CEO at Behrtech. “However, with structurally complex and geographically dispersed buildings, finding the right network infrastructure can be a challenge. Mythings provides the best balance between interference immunity, scalability and range to enable these critical IoT applications in large commercial buildings.”
Andorix provides a suite of managed IT services to enterprises, including point-to-point private fibre connectivity, in-building networks, cloud platforms and digital services.
“Full visibility and control over building management systems is critical for property owners to reduce overall costs,” said Wayne Kim, CEO at Andorix. “Mythings provides the last mile connectivity needed to build a digital hub that is capable of reducing energy consumption, optimising control systems and providing a 360-degree view of building performance and tenant behaviour.”
