    We operate several student residences, some of which have large technical installations/systems. The monitoring tools provided by the manufacturers of components such as heating, ventilation, water meters, etc. are isolated solutions that cannot communicate with other components/manufacturers. We are therefore looking for a manufacturer-independent platform to display heat, electricity, temperature and water consumption values for the technical operation of the building. Both billing and user involvement play a subordinate role. At the moment I’m trying to get an overview of the solutions available on the market.

    Do any of you have something similar in mind or are already monitoring your buildings in this way? What experiences have you already had?

    I’m particularly interested in real use cases and your good and bad experiences.

    Regards Frank

    Hi Frank,

    Depending on which technology is installed and which interfaces are on the meters, the data could be recorded centrally via LoRaWAN with system technology components. For this there are for example Pulse modules that are connected to existing pulse outputs. Another variant – often the case with electricity meters – is the conversion of Modbus to LoRaWAN. Consumption can also be transmitted wirelessly via bridges. A visualization of the consumption could be made in B.One Gallery.

    If the meters in the systems do not have a communication interface, I do not see any possibilities to get all media into one platform without a costly exchange of devices.
