Dubai, UAE, August 2 2018: Honeywell introduced Honeywell Vector Sense, an Internet of Things (IoT) enabled software solution which will show when, where and how building spaces are used at any given point in time, the company said in a press communiqué.
According to Honeywell, the software helps address space constraints by collating and analysing data from multiple sources throughout the building. As a result, it delivers actionable insights, which helps to optimise and make the best use of vacant spaces. Sharing his thoughts on the new technology, Cunyet Comez, Digital Services Director, High Growth Regions, said: “Honeywell’s Vector Space Sense is primarily beneficial to real estate and facility management firms. The technology uses IoT to identify how a building space is, or should be, used at any given time. As a result, key stakeholders are able to make informed decisions related to the usage of space in a building.”
Highlighting the benefits of the software, Vimal Kapur, President and Chief Executive officer, Honeywell Building Technologies, said: “Honeywell Vector Sense will primarily help increase employee productivity, while creating a healthy environment, which is also efficient monetarily.”
Elaborating on the design of Vector Sense, Comez said: “The technology is built with a sensor-agnostic design and is a part of Honeywell’s broader Connected Services portfolio. The software’s fully automated system and algorithms will analyse how densely populated a building is, followed by providing detailed information using heat maps.” According to Honeywell, the software is designed to assist the regulation of various systems, such as the level of power consumption based on occupancy levels. Comez said, “The software’s heat map uses real-time analytics and also identifies dead spots – spaces in the building which can be repurposed and put to good use.”
Elaborating on the usefulness of the software with reference to HVAC control systems, Comez said, “In terms of HVAC and energy efficiency, the software also helps facility managers regulate and set the temperature and fan speed inside the building, resulting in reduced energy consumption.”
