Developing IoT-infrastructure for OVG Real Estate

OVG Real Estate created a smart building-concept for their building Spark. We developed and implemented the concept.

OVG Real Estate wants Spark to become a smart building. They developed a concept to create one of the most advanced office buildings in the Netherlands. In SPARK it is all about the user: the building is the personal assistant.

Developing smart infrastructure

We provide the IoT-infrastructure to realise this concept. The IoT-infrastructure consists of a wireless network of sensors and beacons, fully integrated and invisible. A network that detects people and devices and reacts to them. It has a secured API to develop apps.

The result is bGrid: a state-of-the-art IoT application

bGrid consists of a unique combination of features in an intelligent sensor network. Sensors that interact with existing devices and collect real time data through applications.

Invisible

Although the network has numerous sensors, users cannot see them. Everything is invisibly integrated in the lighting system of the building.

Interaction with users

The interaction of bGrid with users enables applications such as:

  • Setting personal light and climate settings via an app
  • Automatic ventilation adjustments in rooms, based upon the number of people present
  • Swift way finding with the internal routing
  • Quickly finding an empty workstation
  • Quickly finding colleagues
  • Easy room booking

bGrid also has clear benefits for companies:

  • Lower costs for facility management
  • Less energy costs
  • Greater employee satisfaction through ease of use
