Fitbit for buildings
Monitor and manage your buildings energy vitals with a single, seamless IoT solution
Is your building working for you?
Regardless of industry, running a building is a challenge. And when it comes to energy usage, many businesses aren’t as efficient as they need to be.

The energy efficiency challenge
Managing occupant behaviour
Lights left on in empty rooms, computers kept on overnight, windows open with the heating set to high… A shocking amount of energy is wasted through human behaviour—which can be a real challenge to keep an eye on, let alone manage.
Rising operational costs
Running a building is already expensive enough, but with rising energy costs, building operators need more control over common energy issues such as under-utilisation, inefficient scheduling, over-performing equipment, and fluctuating supply and demand.
Meeting government green policy
Heating and powering buildings accounts for 40% of total energy usage in the UK—and businesses are under more pressure than ever to meet energy reduction targets. The 2018 Government policy paper “The Grand Challenges” outlines the aim of halving energy usage in new buildings by 2030.
Simplifying building energy management with Buddy
Preventing resource wastage, reducing energy bills, and meeting complex government policies like ESOS might sound daunting—but it doesn’t need to be. That’s why we’ve partnered with Buddy to make building energy management smarter and greener.
Consisting of IoT sensors, SIM-enabled connectivity, and a real-time dashboard, our scalable and customisable smart building solution is designed to turn sensor data into actionable insights.
Keep track of:
- Electricity, gas, and water consumption per building, floor, desk, or device
- Temperature and relative humidity
- Power generated by renewable energy equipment
See all your buildings and their energy vitals in real-time, in one dashboard
- Get a global real-time view into the operation of your building or portfolio of buildings
- Monitor, compare, and analyse consumption metrics with actionable feedback and alerts
- Create custom-built dashboards for more advanced data analytics
- Deploy public facing dashboards with data-rich, glance-and-go visuals
- Access your data 24/7, from anywhere, on any device, with the confidence that it’s safe and secure
Smart building energy management in 4 steps
Smart building energy management is the fastest, cheapest way to reduce energy bills and cut greenhouse gas emissions—and will transform the way businesses operate.
With data-rich, glance-and-go visuals, public facing dashboards provide the perfect way to engage and empower occupants. Whether the dashboard is displayed in a public area or incorporated into a company intranet site, occupants will always know how their building is performing and where they can make improvements.
Make immediate cost savings
A streamlined data retrieval and analysis process completely removes the need for manual research via clipboard trips up and down the stairs. Prevent downtime and identify problems with real-time alerts, or use more granular data to develop business cases for new energy efficiency investments and strategies. Streamline and optimise resources so less people can make a bigger impact.
For a mid-sized operations or larger, the solution often pays for itself within the first year.
Meet energy efficiency targets
An IoT-equipped smart building will have a far easier time going green. Whether it’s an open fridge or a tap left running, pinpointing the causes of excess utility usage allows for the implementation of floor, room, or even desk-specific plans to meet energy targets and green standards, rather than resorting to guesswork or blanket solutions. Set goals, arrange competitions, and send out reports to engage occupants in your energy efficiency journey.
