Networking in Buildings
Heating and air conditioning are by far the largest energy consumers in a building. Collecting parameters such as temperature, humidity and CO2 with a comprehensive and continuous area-wide system helps identify unnecessary energy consumption and optimize control of the room climate.
Until now, limited monitoring of conditions often led to the fact that expensive investments in the building insulation did not achieve the anticipated savings. If instead, a building’s control system is supplied with comprehensive data about current conditions, up to 30% of the energy needed for room air conditioning can be saved.
So far, high installation costs, especially in existing buildings, prevented access to such data, with the largest part of the cost typically attributed to wiring. Wireless technologies can largely eliminate these costs.
What to look out for?
The minimum requirement for monitoring temperatures is the use of a Min/Max thermometer, which displays the respective minimum and maximum temperatures between two manual checks. However, such a Min/Max thermometer also bears its risks and inconveniences.
For one, the thermometer must be read very consistently and regularly, and in addition, the staff in charge of the recording must be reliable and trustworthy.
The principle disadvantage of a Min/Max thermometer, however, is the inability to send out a reliable alarm in the case of threshold violation (preferably before any damage occurred)!
How do I check if my the required temperature or humidity are maintained on my premises?
Nothing easier than that. The SenseAnywhere monitoring system allows you to keep on top of temperature and humidity measurements on your premises. The system is easy to install and extremely intuitive to use. Keep track of the continuously recorded data at a glance - on site, at home or even while on the road. Configure temperature thresholds and get warned on the PC, by e-mail or SMS if these thresholds are violated - this is the only way to avoid damage before it occurs. On request, the system creates fully automatic reports for documentation and possible submission to authorities.
And the best thing is... ...it doesn’t generate any extra work for you! Position the Sensor Modules where they need to monitor conditions, and after a simple and quick set-up phase, the monitoring system runs completely automatic and reliable - only drawing your attention when you need to step in.
