• Panasonic and Locbit

    Panasonic and Locbit, are highlighted in their Internet of Things collaboration efforts in the in the following video from Plug and Play. The video explains how Locbit created a system that nearly achieved 50% in energy savings in big building environment. This is was a test ran by Panasonic.

    The internet of things is going to create a lot of new opportunities and efficiencies for all types of businesses. Hotels, being big buildings, will benefit tremendously as they are naturally inefficient due to vacancies, guest carelessness and human error. Whats more important is that energy efficiency hits the bottom line. Hotels also have, historically, tested new technologies before they get widely adopted in the consumer space or other enterprise settings. This why Panasonic and Locbit target hotels.

    It started by Locbit connecting and automating a small hospitality mini fridge. After Locbit demonstrated the rapid integration speed of its core technology, Common Machine Language, Panasonic and Locbit aligned on targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) market with a concentration on buildings. After the hospitality test succeeded, in which the results surpassed expectations, Panasonic and Locbit launched a joint collaboration in introducing an IoT solution in the market, that does one thing primarily, make businesses efficient. Enjoy,

  • Smart thermostat-Which one is the best ?

    What is a Smart Thermostat?

    A ‘Smart’ thermostat is a networked device which allows you to manage a location’s temperature based on different variables (such as the time of day). This can be done from a remote setting: wirelessly via the Internet, using your smart phone, tablet or desktop. It being ‘smart’ implies it should save you money on power and keep your home, office or building efficiently comfortable. It achieves this by learning and adapting to your behavior through the support of data-analysis software. It then reports to you in real-time (e.g. energy consumption) and can even adjust its settings based on preset parameters and ambient conditions (e.g. humidity).
