What are smart buildings?

Smart Buildings use technology to assimilate all of your core services, such as HVAC, lighting, alarms, and security into a single IT-managed service.

Technology makes managing a building easier than ever. Whether your building is an office, a leisure outlet, or a multi-dwelling development, smart building technology can significantly improve customer experience.

Let’s explore what makes smart buildings so useful.

entrust IT Group Smart Buildings

The entrust IT Group’s Smart Buildings technology

The entrust smart buildings solution comprises three main areas: Cloud Utilities Management, Cloud Access Management, and Cloud CCTV. Each of these technologies uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help make smarter decisions.

Individually, they provide great benefits. However, pair them together and you’ll benefit from huge efficiency gains and your customers will love their experience. Similarly, your staff will be grateful for the seamless way you protect their security.

Cloud Utilities Management

The entrust IT Group has partnered with Rhino Energy to provide an AI-powered utility platform. Smart meters collect data on the following metrics:

  • Gas usage
  • Energy usage
  • Water usage
  • Heating
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Air Quality

This data collates in an online portal, giving live reporting and AI alerts. This data therefore allows you to report on your climate targets. Furthermore, AI uses data to make cost-saving recommendations. Rhino is an important tool to make your business greener. Rhino’s components are easy to install and hence accessible to all.

Cloud Access Management

The entrust IT Group has partnered with Brivo, to provide an AI-powered access control solution. Brivo is the world’s leading cloud access control platform. Brivo uses “smart” locks to control who can enter a building. Data is logged in a secure online platform. AI within the system offers notifications of strange behaviour. In addition, if paired with Cloud CCTV, the system prevents ‘tailgating’.

Users access their building using their phone, a physical keycard, or PIN code. Brivo can even grant access using only your face. Every access logs against user credentials. Identity connector synchronises with identity and access management (IAM) platforms such as Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure AD).

Grant or revoke access with one click. Unlock doors with just your phone. Track footfall at all your locations. This is the most straightforward way to manage access.

Cloud CCTV

The entrust IT Group has partnered with Eagle Eye Networks to provide AI-powered Cloud CCTV. Eagle Eye works with any camera manufacturer. Therefore, there’s no need to replace your cameras. Footage is captured by a secure online portal. Artificial Intelligence gives you valuable insights. Similarly, footage is stored in the cloud and can be easily shared with authorities.

Legacy CCTV is inflexible. It requires significant investment and is often not well managed. By contrast, Cloud CCTV is modern and constantly evolving. Subscribers get instant access to new features as they arrive. Legacy CCTV feels ancient by comparison.

Manage all your camera footage in one secure location. Search through all your recordings using natural language with AI smart search. Use AI to highlight unusual activity. Eagle Eye’s platform is a breeze for your security team. Consequently, AI saves you time and money. Many businesses already trust Cloud CCTV.
