Creating Smart Buildings of the future with HyperNet

Buildings are among the most complicated environments because they must support hundreds, if not thousands, of people and assets, all of whom rely on a variety of subsystems to keep them happy, safe, and productive. What happens, however, when these structures fail to fulfill the basic purpose for which they were built: to provide sustenance?

Building management in the past was haphazard, with little visibility and essentially no horizontal or vertical integration. All of the subsystems worked in isolation, with only a few device integrations. Traditional building management systems face significant hurdles that hinder them from becoming effective such as:

  • Lack of integrated system: The conventional system contains disparate subsystems installed with their individual IT infrastructure, and could only be accessed and viewed by limited management/facility staff. All the disparate subsystems in a building, such as HVAC and lighting remain disconnected and were managed separately by manual intervention.
  • Uninformed decisions bad management: The lack of data and device integrations results in poor visibility of environmental conditions prompting uninformed decisions. It also results in making a lot of guesswork to manage different systems. This results in switching systems that do not require activation.

  • High operation costs & inefficiency: Bad management leads to an increase in operational expenses. Since decisions are made not on data rather on speculation and estimations, expenses to operate subsystems, lighting, HVAC, utilities, rise.

Smart building solutions bring the power and convenience of IoT technology to homes and workplaces. Their applications vary from plug-n-play smart home kits to complex solutions integrating thousands of devices in offices, hotels, hospitals, warehouses, etc. Smart buildings pave the way to a more sustainable future where energy efficiency, safety, productivity, and comfort are at a very high standard for everyone’s quality of living.

HyperNet IoT platformhas proven to improve efficiencies in many environments, from manufacturing to oil & gas. The ability to harvest data and securely send it back to a central point for better decision-making makes it ideal for automating management in complex environments.

Why HyperNet stands out:

  • Provides Automation opportunities: The more device integrations there are between the physical environment and digital management systems, the broader the opportunities for automation. Improved device connections yield better communications and data acquisition, which helps in decision making. The IoT triggers powerful automation for a wide assortment of applications. Integration of various temperature sensors across the building will help trigger an automated response from the HVAC unit, helping the system save supplied electricity.
  • Better resource utilization: Consider the resources of the workplace: Space, Manpower, Technology. The Smart building solution takes these resources and quantifies them within the context of broader facilities. The result is a better understanding of how people use those resources and information about how to make them more accessible or available.
  • Quantifiable building insights: Each data point generated by the IoT is a quantifiable part of the tangible workplace. That means understanding more about how the workplace functions — who’s using it, how they’re using it, and when they’re using it. Data points add up to trends, which add up to actionable insights.
  • Agile opportunities: In the new age of evolving work styles, changes in the workplace and home space are unavoidable. As agile workspaces become the new norm, there’s a demand for systems to help manage them. This oversight is made easier by the HyperNet Smart building system that generates data to support the new changes.

Our Dynamic 3 Tier Smart Building Solution:

Our tier 3 solution consists of smart surveillance, energy management, and parking management. Working in harmony together to produce the highest productivity for your building.

1. Smart surveillance | Keep an eye on everything
The surveillance industry is changing, and solutions have moved far past basic CCTV monitoring. Live video surveillance along with other remote features have increased visibility for organizations that want to safeguard their people, assets, and buildings.

The HyperNet Smart Surveillance System makes surveillance simple and dynamic. Make smarter decisions about the best course of action to take based on real-time security conditions. Determine when there is a false alarm without having to physically inspect the location or unnecessarily dispatch law enforcement.

By harnessing the data acquired from different cameras, HyperNet enables building owners, organization managers, and security professionals to manage and control surveillance devices remotely to monitor all aspects of a facility.

Facial recognition is one of the major features of the Smart Surveillance system. It opens the door to a wide range of applications that are built around it such as attendance systems, control access to sensitive areas, preventing retail theft, and many more.

The video recording capability for capturing short video clips allows the users to remotely view the feed in real-time. Moreover, users can also review the appearance of a particular person upon request. It also allows access to a wide range of reports such as viewer details and time stamps, daily logs, device batteries, alerts, and event trigger reports.

2. Smart Energy Management
Energy management is a system that takes into great consideration the energy conservation of the building. It gathers data to monitor energy uses and to automatically optimize the electric consumption using integrated devices and sensors.

Optimizing the lighting and HVAC in your building can dramatically decrease your electricity bill. HVAC and lighting make up 59% of commercial energy use. By using sensors to heat or cool specific rooms at specific times, the costs of thermal comfort will decrease. An increase in thermal comfort also increases human productivity.

HyperNet’s smart sockets empower you to control every device and appliance at your wish. Smart sockets let you control your appliances from your phone anywhere. It even lets you set schedules for your devices so you can turn appliances on and off at set times and on specific days.

Our smart sockets also go one step further and collect information about how much energy the appliance is consuming. This is an incredibly useful feature for the energy-conscious consumer. Moreover, it even gives limited access to selected users to control their usage.

HyperNet also offers energy and water digital meters that track the electricity and water supply. Much smarter and more powerful than conventional meters, HyperNet digital meters provide full visibility about the consumed utilities and offer more deep insights such as real-time unit consumption, total units consumed, peak consumption timings, etc. This allows for more informed decisions about utilities’ conservation.

3. Smart Parking Management
Smart parking management consists of an intelligent IoT-based system that sends data about free and occupied parking spaces via web/mobile applications. The sensors and microcontrollers are located in each parking place. The user receives a live update about the availability of all parking places and chooses the best one. Upon occupying a parking space, the sensors convey relevant data to the central system that marks the space as occupied.

With HyperNet Smart Parking, users can save precious time locating available parking spaces. Available parking space is directly shown on their mobile application so that the user can directly go towards the space without roaming the parking lot.

The system also helps save traffic congestion as drivers will loiter less in the parking lot and move straight towards their desired space. With less congestion, a significantly less chance of accidents can occur. The convenience of smart parking management is more pronounced in big parking lots in shopping malls, stadiums, cinemas, amusement parks, etc.
