Cem Alptekin, SVP Operations at iotaComm™, was featured as a subject matter expert contributor for AutomatedBuildings.com. For over 20 years, AutomatedBuildings.com has been a leading online magazine and resource for news and connection to the community of change agents creating their present definition of smart, intelligent, integrated, connected, green, and converged large buildings. Cem shared that facilities managers for commercial buildings constantly struggle with annual budgets and look for ways to make money go further. Although traditional building automation systems can save money, Cem points to three savings opportunities to make buildings more intelligent by integrating Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. These easy to implement IoT solutions use sensors to collect building data that is analyzed to give valuable insights into building operations. Decisions are then made to reduce energy consumption driving additional savings to the facility manager’s bottom line.
