Internet of Things

“Internet of Things” can create huge savings in commercial buildings. As just one example, Comfy, an interactive temperature control system, is built on a machine-learning platform. Comfy gives individual workers a measure of control over the temperature in their space through a web portal or iPhone app, and over time learns what spaces are unoccupied when in order to reduce or turn off heating or cooling. Savings can be 20% or more. (Buildings, March 2015)
