Here's how the technology works:
- Typical Deployment
smartengine is a building intelligence and lighting control platform designed to power lights and sensors over an IT network infrastructure backbone. Sensors are deployed throughout a space and communicated with in real time to deliver advanced insights throughout the entire built environment. The sensors detect motion, brightness, temperature, air quality, bluetooth data and per fixture power consumption. All data is automatically delivered to the smartengine in real time. The networking of rooms and buildings via sensors makes it possible to quickly obtain a detailed understanding of how spaces are being used, all the while delivering best in class lighting energy consumption, often measured between 0.1-0.3 W/ft².
The smartengine deployment is based on standard network cables that connect all components: LED lights, smartsensors and central active components, the so-called „smartengines“ and the „smartdirector“. The smartdirector manages up to 2000 smartsensors, collects all sensor data and serves as an interface (open API and BACnet/IP) to external components such as a Building Management System (BMS). The smartengines are used to power LED-lights and sensors while simultaneously gathering and distributing sensor data. This approach greatly reduces design complexity and installation cost, while at the same time providing a communication infrastructure for the entire building.
Open API & BACnet
Using smartengine and it’s out of the box interfaces is an easy way to generate more value from your smartengine solution and thereby your building. The smartengine-technology features an open API and a BACnet/IP stack with which you can access and share all sensor data from your built space. With BACnet/IP, you can establish two-way communication between smartengine and your building management system (BMS) and its subsystems (e.g. your HVAC system). The Open API is used to integrate 3rd party applications into your smartengine solution. With our open API (rAPI & uAPI) you can access all of your smartsensor data, allowing for various Use Cases, such as asset & people tracking and Hot Desking.
