When two technology agnostic partners got together magic happened: Tele2 IoT and SWYCS created a future-proof IoT-solution for the Real Estate Market. This is the story of how technology revolutionized the way we think about energy distribution and preventive maintenance with a case study of Dutch installation Company Van Dijk Made.
Imagine a time when instead of paying endless energy bills people are actually generating more energy than they need. A time when home appliances, such as washing machines or electric car charging posts, automatically choose the right time to use green energy. A time when gas and oil are no longer primary energy resources and instead homes are zero energy.
This might sound like something out of the future but the future is already here.
Based in the Netherlands, SWYCS is a company specializing in IoT infrastructure and IoT solutions, with the SWYCS gateway providing solutions not just for energy management, but also for building maintenance, and health and welfare.
The Dutch government supports a number of innovative initiatives aimed household energy efficiency. One scheme, implemented since 2015, requires newly-built or renovated homes are no longer allowed to incorporate gas energy. In order to properly support this initiative, grants that support alternative energy sources which optimize energy usage, such as solar panels, have been made available, which helps move the country towards its stated aim of neutral energy housing.
A technology agnostic solution is the key
SWYCS stands out from other players on the market by being technologically agnostic: their gateway works with any access technology and is compatible with solutions from any vendor. In order to lift their offering even further, SWYCS has partnered with Tele2 IoT, which provides reliable mobile connectivity, as well as the enabling services 2ROUTE and 2SECURE.
In short, SWYCS is part of creating a smarter world, making the Internet of Things concepts accessible by providing advanced accessible IoT infrastructure and solutions. SWYCS’ advanced IoT gateway and IoT platform allows housing associations to remotely monitor and control technical installations and sensors in homes and buildings. Energy usage data can be securely accesses and managed both in a user-friendly web interface or a smartphone app.
Through talks customers in this area, SWYCS understands that the smart energy management market is relatively scattered today, due to different companies using different access technologies ,and different devices supporting different protocols.
