SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Enlighted Inc., a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial buildings, has announced the launch of two web applications: Enlighted Aire, a tool that provides demand-driven HVAC control, and Enlighted Space, a tool that provides visualization and reporting of building utilization. These web applications are designed to provide building managers with easy-to-use tools to glean insights, like energy usage, space utilization, and worker productivity, from their commercial spaces.

“We’re excited to create a clearer line of communication between building managers and inhabitants and the spaces that they use every day,” said Tanuj Mohan, chief technology officer at Enlighted. “These applications are the next step in making IoT achievable — and more importantly, meaningful — for companies looking to extract further efficiencies from their buildings.”

Enlighted’s IoT platform allows companies to gather insights via its smart sensor technology that offers real-time analysis of what happens inside buildings. Through light, heat, and motion detection, customers can now access these smart insights from web applications to drive efficiencies and cost saving initiatives in their organizations. A recent McKinsey report estimates that the IoT could have an economic impact of upwards of $11 trillion a year by 2025. Out of the nine settings where value may accrue, more than half involve commercial buildings, leaving the market largely untapped.

“There are three critical elements needed to encourage adoption of commercial IoT and for it to deliver tangible results,” said Bob O’Donnell, chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research. “First, a comprehensive platform made up of a dense array of sensor endpoints connected to a network delivering real-time building data. Second, a financing program lowering financial risks to adoption. Finally, apps allowing building managers to respond to the information gathered by the platform.”

The Enlighted Aire web application is designed to provide access to building managers to control HVAC in commercial spaces. It provides a dynamic view of energy savings by displaying customizable time schedules and reporting real-time updates on setback status, utilization, and temperature by zone.

The Enlighted Space application is designed to provide deeper insight into how individual spaces in buildings are being used in order to best inform energy efficiencies and space planning. Customers are able to safely and anonymously measure usage of their work spaces to identify under-utilized spaces and develop optimization strategies.
