Finmeccanica - Selex ES and Rudin Management Integrate Intel® Gateway Technology Delivering Comprehensive Digital Building Solution for Real Estate of All Sizes Through DiBOSS-MF
BREWSTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Finmeccanica - Selex ES has teamed with Rudin Management Company, a New
York based property owner and manager, in creating DiBOSS-MF, digital
building operating system solutions for multifamily properties. Using
Intel (News - Alert)® Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), the new
offering extends the original DiBOSS platform applicability to
multifamily and small commercial space markets.
Originally developed to be a "brain" for large commercial buildings,
DiBOSS™ uses machine learning algorithms to forecast how the building
should be operated under specific conditions. DiBOSS provides real-time
continuous feedback from all subsystems in a building - power, HVAC,
ventilation, lighting, security, etc. - while tracking building
occupancy. This information gives building managers reliable data to
make better decisions, improve operating efficiency and keep the people
in the building safer and more comfortable. DiBOSS-MF capitalizes on
this functionality for deployment in smaller buildings.
"Integrating Intel® Gateway (News - Alert) Solutions for IoT gives operators of
multifamily residences and smaller commercial buildings the ability to
implement DiBOSS-MF," remarked John Gilbert, EVP and COO at Rudin
Management, and DiBOSS-MF development collaborator. "Rudin's innovation,
insight and drive in this technology development project to manage
multifamily and small commercial buildings have resuted in virtually
any building in our portfolio realizing measurable energy and cost
savings, and these buildings were already very well run."
In multifamily and small commercial buildings, Intel® Gateway Solutions
for IoT provides effective sensor coverage by connecting new devices or
electrical equipment to DiBOSS-MF. Building managers who often rely on
isolated, reactive systems can now use a more intelligent system for
holistic ramp up/down and maintaining daily comfort within their
buildings. "More than 85 percent of today's existing legacy systems are
isolated islands of automation. The Intel® Gateway Solutions for IoT
eliminates the need for building managers to rip and replace existing
infrastructure to gain the benefits of holistic building management.
This technology enables effective integration of previously isolated
sub-systems into the DiBOSS-MF system," says Rick Lisa, Intel's Group
Sales Director, WW IoT Business Development.
"In addition to using machine learning algorithms, DiBOSS-MF provides a
'cockpit' style user interface that presents not only raw data, but
highlights deviations from optimal energy usage and produces fault
detection alarms to guide operators to take action," explained Bill
Nieuwkerk, Chief Operating Officer of Selex ES Inc., a subsidiary of
Finmeccanica - Selex ES in the US. "When integrating Intel® Gateway
Solutions for IoT, all data is collected from the building subsystems
and handed off to DiBOSS for presentation in our cockpit."
"Because of the high levels of Intel® Gateway integration, we can now
put a sensor under a kitchen sink or near the heating radiator in
individual residences that will allow DiBOSS to monitor and predict
leaks," John Gilbert explained. "The ability to predict and take action
at the onset of such conditions will prevent water damage and mold
growth - saving us substantially more in repairs than if they went
