With rising energy costs, changing usage patterns, and growing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, many organizations are under pressure to meet net-zero emissions targets while accommodating continued growth with improved operating costs. While smart buildings have been a reality for many years, advances in networking, artificial
intelligence, IoT, cloud computing and cybersecurity technologies, as well as innovations in the building sector, are driving dramatic change.

The Wellbased project, initiated in Valencia in September 2022, focuses on tackling energy poverty and improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable households. The project is set within the urban and residential environments of Valencia, leveraging the city's status as the European Green Capital for 2024. It utilizes advanced IoT technologies to monitor and manage indoor environmental conditions, aiming to empower citizens and facilitate a sustainable energy transition. The project encompassed 6 cities around Europe which were: Valencia (Spain), Heerlen (The Netherlands), Leeds (UK), Edirne (Turkey), Budapest (Hungary) and Jelgava (Latvia). In Valencia, Damal Redes, Milesight's partner and a contractor for Fundació València Clima i Energia (VCI), has successfully deploy IoT solutions across a variety of homes, improving energy efficiency and make cities smarter and better.

About Wellbased Project

"From Valencian vision, energy poverty is a question of social injustice caused by several causes, most of them structural causes and therefore outside the household's control … Interventions include the installation of sensors for the monitoring of energy, atmosphere, health and quality of life indicators from vulnerable households, aiming to prove the relationship between energy poverty and physical and mental health issues. Gathered data will be later analyzed and evaluated to assess the effects of the interventions in participants health and wellbeing."

Damal Redes deployed 130 AM103L 3-in-1 IAQ sensors across multiple households to monitor key environmental parameters such as CO2 levels, temperature, and humidity. The network topology designed for this project ensures that data from these sensors is relayed in real-time to a central system where it can be analyzed to provide actionable insights to both residents and energy advisors.

Milesight IoT sensors collect environmental data which is then transmitted via a secure network to a centralized data ingestion partner, aggregating data for 5 other partner cities for a total of 6 cities. This system analyzes the data to provide insights on energy usage patterns, potential savings, and areas needing attention for health improvements.


"From a technological standpoint, Milesight's sensors have not only met but exceeded our operational expectations at Damal Redes. Their devices are durable, efficient, and provide the kind of precise environmental monitoring we need to drive impactful decisions. The data collected by Milesight products has been instrumental in advancing our project goals, particularly in enhancing the health and well-being of Valencia's residents through smarter energy use" Jose Antonio Hernández, IoT Technical Lead at Damal Redes
