Building Efficiency and Occupant Well-Being Enhanced by Conectric and SenSING Collaboration
Cleantech San Diego member Conectric Networks is a San Diego-based wireless IoT start-up and recent awardee in the Southern California Energy Innovation Network, World Trade San Diego MetroConnect, OCTANe LaunchPad SBDC, and Telecom Industry Council Innovation Showcase accelerator programs and is actively pursuing global market expansions. Conectric and SenSING Private Limited have entered into a strategic agreement to collaborate on enhancing efficiency, comfort, well-being, and health of occupants by creating smart indoor environments. SenSING provides a total workplace management platform including IoT devices to monitor and improve occupant health and efficiency. SenSING currently has customers in ASEAN markets including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and India.
The SenSING offering “Creates More Efficient Indoor Spaces.” The platform is personalized to the customer and analyzes data collected from sensors to understand how indoor environments affect occupants. Metrics around environmental conditions including workstation occupancy, air quality, temperature, humidity, noise, light, and energy consumption are used to assess the health of the building.
“Although we started from a deep technical background in IoT devices, SenSING realized early on that the focus should be the fact that people spend 90 percent of their time inside buildings, and so there is a critical need to consider their health and well-being in relation to the environment,” said Anu Kondepudi, Chief Everything Officer for SenSING. “We have made extensive efforts to identify key metrics related to indoor health and overall operational efficiencies that can be measured and have developed an easily scalable and manageable platform.”
SenSING’s market demand has been strong in offices, campuses, hotels, agriculture, and industrial environments. Conectric’s ultra-scalable wireless sensor private networking and sensor pack devices provide the ideal solution for SenSING’s entry into these highly scaled, sensor dense, and security conscious environments.
“Conectric’s technology and partnership model was really designed to enable leaders like SenSING in the fast growing, global building analytics space,” said Conectric CEO Phillip Kopp. “We are enabling seamless customer experiences by delivering highly granular, scalable, and real-time building data directly on the network edge in the globally unlicensed ISM band. This is ideal for large buildings like hotels, factories, and warehouses, whose ownership can span hundreds of locations in multiple countries. We are very excited about the potential of this collaboration and helping SenSING achieve their global expansion goals.”
After performing the systems integration and field testing, Conectric and SenSING will launch the combined solution, making it commercially available to global customers in December 2019. SenSING seamlessly displays data and analytics captured from Conectric’s environmental, occupancy, and energy related sensors and can be aggregated in the cloud or run on the edge.
