Dubai, UAE, 3 October 2018: IoT has been at the forefront of many discussions related to emerging building technologies, yet the technology must be combined with technical know-how, in order to optimise its integration, said Carsten Østergård Pedersen, Senior Manager, District Energy, Grundfos (Group), who stressed that IoT offers good perspective within a project, but it has to make sense to the customer. “You should combine it with a lot of sensor technology to add value to the data, and offer the data for the optimisation of the customer,” he said. “If we don’t interpret the data, we are not necessarily adding enough value.”

Pedersen said that IoT offers very good opportunities and should be utilised where it makes sense and that, as with all changes, training is vital in this regard. “When we come with these new and different IoT solutions,” he said, “we should ensure education of our people to provide the right benefits to the customers in the end.”
