Siemens Smart Infrastructure has launched Connect Box, which the company says is “an open and easy-to-use” IoT solution designed to manage small to medium-sized buildings.
“The latest addition to the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, Connect Box is a user-friendly approach for monitoring building performance, with the potential to optimise energy efficiency by up to 30 per cent and to substantially improve indoor air quality in small-to-medium-sized buildings such as schools, retail shops, apartments or small offices.
“Siemens Xcelerator is an open digital business platform that enables customers to accelerate their digital transformation easier, faster and at scale.
Siemens says Connect Box allows users to accomplish essential daily building management tasks from one place via a cloud-based interface, with no additional gateway or software.
Alarm notifications for potential issues as well as graphics that visualise historical trends provide meaningful insights into the building performance at any time, supporting the optimisation of building operations.
