HOTEL DISASTER PREVENTION

Hotels can have costs that are unique to a location, issue or clientele. Hotels clientele varies, and it can go from hosting out-of-towners staying for conventions or revelers from San Diego having a night on the town.

Hotel management has explained that there’s a common problem with bathtubs and sinks overflowing. When this happens, carpeting and just about anything that’s touching the floor needs to be replaced. In addition to this direct cost, there’s the revenue lost while the room is repaired and de-humidified. As a result, water problems present a costly problem for hotels.

Locbit has installed sensors to detect the problem in real-time. Hotel management is notified of the problem before the situation gets out of control so that they can alert the guest. Data concerning the location and time of the event is captured, allowing management to react swiftly. The Locbit solution is expected to save the hotel hundreds of thousands of dollars.

BREWERY ENERGY PEAK ANALYSIS

This Brewing Co operates a 55,000 square foot brewing facility and a 60,000 square foot packing hall. Its finance and operations departments noticed large energy spikes at various times of the day and month. They were, however, unable to pinpoint the day, time or device of the spike. The lack of data and insights prevented them from having a deeper understanding of the issue.

Locbit installed their platform which collected data from multiple devices. The data was then securely stored for deeper analysis to identify the exact time, day and problem that generated the spike. With the problem identified, Locbit was able to advise this brewery on easy measures to shift their usage to off peak hours. The platform is also able to provide real-time feedback and alarms to help with the investigation.

GROCERY STORE - AUTOMATING ENERGY SAVINGS

Grocery stores operate on thin margins, so every dollar counts. These stores spend a considerable amount of that money on cooling systems – refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning. Slight changes in temperature can result in less-than-fresh food or spoilage.

Locbit installed light, temperature, motion and moisture sensors throughout the building to measure the internal “atmosphere” of the building.

The internal temperature can change throughout the day or night depending on the external sunlight and temperature. Lights within the building also have an effect as well.

The Locbit platform automatically turns on or off lighting depending on need. It was also identified that employees were having problems closing some of the older freezer doors. That small issue was resulting in higher energy bills. Sensors were installed and now alert management in real-time to investigate the situation.

Another two very important things that the Locbit Platform helped this supermarket discover is how its customers move inside the property, i.e. which aisles they visit more frequently, and how to maintain the perfect moisture level in the fresh produce department so it can prolong the life and freshness of its perishable goods.

To this day, the Locbit platform continues to collect more meaningful data that results in management learning how to take action to lower expenses and increase efficiency.

RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY - INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO LOWER ENERGY USAGE

Residential care facilities deal with rising energy and operational costs and prior to the installation of the Locbit IoT platform, this facility operated without a centrally-controlled HVAC system. This resulted in management walking through the building multiple times a day to turn off air conditioning in empty rooms. Gaining control of each individual room in real time was a high priority for the safety and comfort of the residents.

In 2016, the Locbit IoT platform was installed and is currently monitoring and controlling over 250 IoT devices including Wi-Fi thermostats, motion/temperature sensors, open/close door sensors and water leak detection sensors. Managing temperature controls and motion of residents provides the ability to customize and program automations to support operational efficiency.
