OVG Real Estate – Smart Building
OVG develops smart, high-tech office buildings with a sustainable footprint. One of OVG’s core objectives in the development of these buildings is creating healthier working environments, with added value solutions for the building’s occupants, by using smart technology. To achieve this, they used our smart building infrastructure.
The solution is a fully wireless sensor-network, invisibly integrated. Our state-of-the-art solution consists of personal light and climate settings and a unique combination of technology and user interaction. It produces a more efficient, more sustainable, and cheaper building.
The solution combines technical functions with user interaction functions. Nodes are placed in a high-density network throughout the building. These nodes collect sensor information, act as beacons, interact with elements such as displays and actuators, control lamps and record locations of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) devices. They send their information to gateways and receive instructions from these gateways to control their operating mode.
