How IoT Transforms Facility Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) has transformed facility management by providing a new level of data and insights that were previously unattainable. There are many benefits of utilizing IoT in facility management, including improved air quality, utility usage, and water leak detection.

EPIC iO is the leading provider of IoT solutions, with a multi-sensor approach that provides the most comprehensive data and insights available, allowing you to make informed decisions that improve your facility’s operations.

Benefits of IoT For Facility Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) has a lot of potential to revolutionize facility management in numerous industries by providing real-time, actionable data that can be used to improve efficiency, optimize resources, and reduce costs. Industries we serve include retail manufacturing, warehouses, utility providers, parks and recreation, city planners and administrators, and risk assessment managers or safety officers. 

Some of the benefits of using IoT in facility management include:

Improved Utility Efficiency

By monitoring live utility usage, facility managers can identify trends and make adjustments to improve efficiency. For example, if a sensor detects that a particular room is consistently warmer than others, the manager could adjust the temperature for that room to reduce energy consumption.

Better Air Quality, Safety, and Security  

IoT devices can be used to monitor environmental conditions such as air quality, temperature, and humidity levels. This information can then be used to identify potential or current safety issues and take the necessary steps to reduce risk before more significant issues arise. Additionally, IoT devices can be used to monitor access points in a facility and trigger an alarm if unauthorized entry is detected.

Water Leak Detection 

Detecting a water leak early is critical to avoiding costly damage. By monitoring equipment for early signs of failure, facility managers can schedule maintenance before problems occur. In the event of a leak, the water can be shut off and repairs made before there is any flooding or destruction of property.  

Our Multi-Sensor Approach

EPIC iO utilizes a multi-sensor approach to gather a wide range of data for different uses. Our sensors can be installed inside or outside buildings, and we can even integrate other brands’ sensors if they meet our quality standards. This allows our system to source data from multiple viewpoints, and our proprietary DeepInsights technology collates the information in actionable reports that allows managers to gain visibility into what’s happening in their facilities.  

DeepInsights technology can also be used to calculate what you can expect to happen next based on previous data patterns and set up alerts for rising or falling levels or in the event a metric crosses a specific threshold. Depending on the needs of the client and their project, we can install: 

Air Quality Sensors

IoT sensors can be used to monitor various aspects of air quality, such as temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide levels, airflow and circulation, and chemical pollutants. The quality of the air inside a facility can have a major impact on the health and productivity of its occupants. By alerting facility managers to potential problems, IoT can help ensure that buildings are kept safe and comfortable for those who use them. 

Power & Water Usage Sensors

IoT sensors can also be used to monitor power and water usage in a facility. This information can be used to assess areas where power is being wasted and make the necessary changes to reduce excess energy consumption. In some cases, IoT-enabled devices can even automatically adjust utility usage based on real-time data from sensors, resulting in marked costs savings. 

Water Leak Detectors

Additionally, IoT sensors can be used to help track water usage throughout a building and identify areas where leaks may be occurring. By reducing water waste, IoT can help save money and conserve this important natural resource.

Water leaks are also one of the most common problems faced by facility managers, causing damage to property and leading to costly repairs. IoT sensors can help detect leaks quickly so that they can be fixed before major damage occurs.
