Smart Building Solutions
Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are devices that are deployed to collect data on various environmental parameters and activities.
These sensors are an important part of the smart building ecosystem, where they connect to a network and transmit data for monitoring, analysis, and control. Here are some common types of building IoT sensors that Parallel technologies deploys that help our clients achieve a smarter, safer, and more cost-effective building:
Vape detection devices are designed to detect and monitor the presence of vaping, THC, or smoking within a building. These devices utilize sensors and algorithms to identify and alert building management about any potential vaping activities. By integrating vape detection into your smart building solution, it helps create a healthier and safer environment for building occupants, particularly in areas where smoking is prohibited. Our K-12 and healthcare clients have found significant success installing these sensors.
Light sensors, also known as ambient light sensors, measure the intensity of light in a particular area. They are commonly used in smart low voltage lighting systems to automatically adjust lighting levels based on natural light conditions or occupancy, driving cost savings.
Motion sensors detect movement within a defined area. They are widely used for security purposes, such as triggering alarms, activating surveillance cameras, or controlling access to restricted areas.
Occupancy sensors detect the presence or absence of people in specific areas of a building. They are used for various purposes, such as optimizing lighting, enhancing security, and improving space utilization.
Noise sensors measure sound levels within a building. They help monitor noise pollution, ensure compliance with noise regulations, and enable the implementation of sound control measures.
IP (Internet Protocol) speakers are network-connected audio devices that allow for distributed audio solutions within a smart building. They can broadcast live or pre-recorded announcements, background music, and emergency notifications. By integrating IP speakers into smart building solutions, it becomes easier to manage and distribute audio content throughout the building, enhancing communication, public safety, and overall user experience.
IP clocks are synchronized clocks that receive time updates from a central time server, ensuring accurate timekeeping throughout the building. These clocks often connect to the network using Internet Protocol. Integration of IP clocks into smart building solutions ensures consistent and synchronized time display across various devices and systems within the building, promoting efficiency and coordination.
By deploying these building IoT sensors, Parallel Technologies enables effective monitoring, control, and management of various aspects within smart buildings, improving occupant experience, safety, and operational efficiency.
