Smart buildings represent an opportunity for utilities to generate energy savings by taking advantage of efficiencies based on the schedules of the building’s inhabitants, as consumers receive power from the distribution network and participate in the generation and dissemination of power. Adding intelligence to buildings also allows tighter control of building security.
Machine-to-machine (M2M) technology makes smart buildings possible by enabling consumers to remotely view utility consumption and control usage, and also to remotely control security, including secure access, closed circuit television, and security alarms. M2M functionality also eliminates common Wi-Fi connectivity issues.
Wind River® solutions deliver the secure and manageable connectivity that makes smart buildings possible.
