by Brianna Crandall — March 9, 2018 — BuildingDNA, a provider of visual intelligence for smarter, safer buildings, just announced a partnership with Buddy Platform Limited, an Internet of Things (IoT) data management, processing and control platform company, to integrate their respective technologies and jointly market their smart building solutions facilities managers (FMs) and other clients.
The BuildingDNA platform provides smart visual mapping and IoT connectivity to smart systems, sensors and cameras and predictive/prescriptive analytics to provide in-building situational awareness to FMs and first responders.
The Buddy Ohm monitoring solution provides IoT-class hardware (sensors and gateways) for commercial, industrial and multifamily residential buildings, which allows them to monitor real-time building operations including electricity, water, gas, steam, temperature, humidity and solar energy. It is said to connect systems that were never designed to work together, while turning energy savings into a strategic asset.
This partnership will offer a complete, smart building solution that includes hardware and software for FMs to better monitor systems and to help first responders do their job more efficiently and safely in an emergency.
Joe Hernandez, BuildingDNA CEO, stated:
Together, we are bringing buildings to life and enabling them to tell you when there is an issue and exactly where that issue is…from anywhere at anytime. It’s a perfect synergy for bringing IoT applications to the market that can save money, and help save lives.
This partnership showcases how two IoT solutions — when combined — can fundamentally improve the human condition and positively impact the environment, says BuildingDNA.
Tim Ritchie, VP Sales and Partnerships, Buddy, remarked:
We’re impressed with the BuildingDNA platform and its ability to help facility managers and building operators visualize their assets. This already-powerful tool combined with Buddy Ohm will now give them the opportunity to see their real-time energy use data; ultimately allowing them to better respond to their occupants’ needs and safety as well as reduce carbon emissions.
