Retrofit IoT for Facility Management

Nornir brings the future of smart living to you and your residents. Unlike traditional methods of connecting devices or things to the Web, we help anyone connect anything, through bi-directional linking. There are no limits to what you can achieve with our expert technology.

Many things that we take for granted that make our homes more comfortable and safer are also the ones that can have disastrous consequences when ignored. Take air conditioning for example. It makes summers more comfortable and saves countless lives of sick and elderly. But there is a flipside. Europe uses more electricity for cooling purposes than entire Africa uses for everything. The average American has an annual energy bill of $2000, of which cooling contributes the largest part. And 100 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions owe to cooling.

That’s why many smart home developers have come up with solutions for monitoring the power consumption of an entire building and automatic temperature adjustment to reduce and increase cooling based on the temperature. These solutions are costly and often require expensive installation and maintenance, while requiring to be connected to web and servers. With the additional costs and additional power consumption from computer processing, it is uncertain if there are any net benefits. That’s where Nornir comes in to make the job easier.

With Nornir, you can install a power consumption monitor and temperature controls without the need for installing new computers, servers, wiring, or other middleware. Nornir’s proprietary bi-directional linking technology can connect sensors and monitors to your smartphone or PC directly end to end, taking out the costliest portion of smart home solutions.

Cooling and power consumption are not the only areas where Nornir can help managers of apartments and residential complexes. The potential goes much further.

We can help with predictive maintenance work and make the job of janitors easier. Let’s say we plant sensors to monitor the amount of light, the humidity, and battery levels. Now the moment a light bulb burns out, or walls get frost damage, or power levels are low, janitors can be warned to come in and conduct maintenance immediately without losing time. Where Nornir makes this technology much more useful is that it sends this information with zero latency to the concerned parties, so that no time is lost in acting immediately.

How else can your home automation experience be improved?

Do you want to improve security? We can install sensors to notify you if there is any unexpected entry into a room, or if the fire exit is blocked. Many devices for smart living do not come with encryptions so that outsiders can hack into your door locks and security cameras. Our technology comes with encryption that makes any security breach impossible.

Are you worried that once you install a set of smart home upgrades, you will have to replace everything all over again when it becomes obsolete? No worries, as Nornir’s technology is backwards and forwards compatible and can integrate with any smart home devices you need to replace as time goes by.

Do you manage an apartment complex and want to make it easier to find parking space or available bicycles? We can install a system connected to parking space and bike locks so that residents can park their car smoothly and ensure that rental bikes are replaced as often as possible.

If you are an owner of a smart home, a building maintenance agency, or a manager of a residential complex, we want to make your maintenance and security issues managed as smoothly as possible. That is why we encourage you to get in touch with us and ask how we can help.
