Smart building consumers receive power from the distribution network and participate in the generation and dissemination of power. Buildings represent an opportunity for utilities to take advantage of energy efficiencies based on the schedules of the inhabitants of the building. In addition to the energy savings generated by adding intelligence to buildings, smart buildings also allow tighter control of building security.
Using machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, consumers are able to remotely view utility consumption and control usage, while also controlling security with features such as secure access, closed circuit television, and security alarms. M2M functionality also eliminates the Wi-Fi connectivity issues facing many building tenants.
Wind River® solutions deliver the secure and manageable connectivity that make smart buildings possible.
