• Panasonic and Locbit

    Panasonic and Locbit, are highlighted in their Internet of Things collaboration efforts 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 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. What’s 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 with 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,
