Background

There is a growing focus on energy efficiency among all stakeholders that goes beyond mere legislative compliance. Building owners have recognized the rising market demand for green buildings and the appeal of reducing energy consumption in every aspect including HVAC, lighting and solar energy utilization. Consumers and users are highly motivated to actively participate in the fight against increased energy bills and carbon emissions. As the IoT devices and solutions have developed the, IoT-based energy management system (EMS) has been launched and gradually implemented globally.

Milesight's partner, Resource Data Management has helped their client who is an international conglomerate with its headquarters situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The client's influx of employees working in the building has raised several issues which creates an opportunity for creating a smart building utilizing IoT solutions.

Challenges

Poor Indoor
Air Quality

  • Complaints of stuffiness, odors, or discomfort among occupants.
  • Concerns about the presence of pollutants, allergens, or contaminants in the indoor air.
  • Inadequate ventilation leading to stagnant air or high levels of CO2.

Temperature and
Humidity Imbalance

  • Occupant discomfort due to areas with excessive heat or cold.
  • Problems with humidity levels leading to condensation, mold growth, or discomfort.
  • Inefficient HVAC system operation resulting in energy waste or uneven temperature distribution.

High Energy
Consumption

  • Rising utility bills due to inefficient use of heating, cooling, and lighting systems.
  • Lack of visibility into energy usage patterns and opportunities for optimization.
  • Inefficient utilization of resources leading to environmental concerns.

Occupancy and
Space Utilization

  • Difficulty in managing lighting and HVAC systems based on occupancy patterns.
  • Concerns about underutilized or overcrowded areas within the building.
  • Security vulnerabilities due to inadequate monitoring of occupancy in certain spaces.

Compliance and
Safety Regulations

  • Need to comply with indoor air quality standards and regulations.
  • Requirements for safety measures such as motion-activated lighting or CO2 monitoring in enclosed spaces.
  • Concerns about liability related to occupant health, safety, and comfort.

DMTouch

Resource Data Management Asia has deployed a wireless solution utilizing sensors and gateway to address the challenges faced by the client. The solution works in tandem with the energy management system (EMS) implemented by Resource Data Management Asia to optimize energy consumption and maximize occupant comfort. Moreover, RDM has also developed a Unity-based 3D Digital Twin to highlight energy consumption, room occupancy, and internal air quality in the building.

The RDM EMS provides a comprehensive platform for monitoring, controlling, and optimizing energy usage in various facilities. It integrates advanced technology to collect and analyze data from multiple sources, such as HVAC systems, lighting, and equipment. For this project, digital power meters collect critical energy data and wired through RDM's PLC controller. The data is sent to RDM's control and monitoring system front-end, DMTouch, where algorithms and data analytics are used to identify patterns, anomalies, and areas for improvement. It provides users with insights into energy usage patterns, equipment performance, and potential efficiency gains.

As for room occupancy and internal air quality metrics, Milesight LoRaWAN® solutions are utilized. With Milesight Semi-industrial LoRaWAN® Gateway UG65, all environmental data collected by sensors can be transformed and presented on the EMS dashboard for facility managers to better understand and improve management. Building managers have access to real-time data on motion, humidity, TVOC, temperature, CO2, and more, which collected by AM107 7-in-1 IAQ Sensor, WS202 LoRaWAN® PIR & Light Sensor, EM300-TH Temperature and Humidity Sensor and EM500-CO2 Outdoor CO2 Sensor.

With the help of this information, HVAC systems and lighting systems can be intelligently controlled. For example, when the indoor air quality reaches a threshold (shown as red on the dashboard), the HVAC system can be adjusted in time to improve ventilation with the help of IoT controller UC100. In addition, lights can be turned off if no motion is detected in the meeting room.
