The importance of connected data
A smart building is about being connected. The smartest buildings join up all activities and operations regardless of systems, to enable interaction and automation within a building, making them more efficient and responsive. Integrating building sensors, controls and analytical systems with energy efficiency solutions and facilities management services can have a significant impact on your buildings performance, operations and occupant wellbeing, resulting in substantial benefits and cost savings across your business. ENGIE will demonstrate our smart solutions including innovative technologies like one single view, to improve your buildings performance for a more secure and sustainable future.
