The Smart Buildings Solutions using the Internet of Things framework agreement will provide authorities
with the means to enable intelligent commercial buildings. Solutions primarily involve the installation of
a sensory network that is connected via wireless internet to cloud based data analytics, which enables
monitoring and control of energy usage, building occupancy and visibility of assets. The solution can be
composed of several modular components which all work simultaneously to create a platform for the
management of buildings, and in turn driving efficiencies across estates.
Note: This framework agreement is not concerned with domestic properties.
