Problem addressed

The legacy building management systems are running by different providers that do not interface and operate together, this incurs a high maintenance and operation cost. Our one-stop cloud-based application platform optimizes the daily operation, the smartphone application also allows occupants to control their environment with comfort, this enhances the premise value with energy efficiency.

  • Integrate the legacy building management system, providing one-stop cloud platform for facility mangement to optimize their daily operation with cost-saving on energy.
  • Leveraging the Internet-of-Things technology, apply low-cost smart hardware and sensors, enhancing the indoor environment quality and providing the conditions of system operation.
  • Tenants can access doors and lifts in touchless manner by using their identity pre-set in smartphone application. With the smart building upgrade, tenants can also have direct control to the building facilities, including the HVAC, lightings, access control units and etc.
