A popular saying recommends “Do not to mix water with electricity”
I do it, I mix the water and the energy when I have to manage the use of water in buildings and when I have to optimize the lighting or the energy consumptions of equipment.
Yes, I use the same smart platform to manage the water use efficiently and the lighting, supplying the adequate amount of light when and where needed!
Why? Because I can. I can do it efficiently using the same resources and the same technology to manage the potential leaks of water and avoid the excessive energy consumptions in equipment.
On the other hand, this integrated solution is autonomous and automatic working with simple and direct rules created by the users, sending information to the manager only when necessary, because all others decisions are done by the embedded intelligence.
