CytexOne has announced its smart building practice targeted to commercial buildings, university campuses and related facilities, providing energy efficiency, security and automation for reduced operational expense and heightened intelligence and reporting.

Due to emerging technologies and the need for greater operational efficiency in commercial facilities, smart building research firm Memoori has projected the IoT market for commercial buildings to grow 25 percent annually to more than $85B in 2020. Buildings, from large skyscrapers to residential multi-dwelling units (MDUs), present an important opportunity for the emerging collection of technologies and automation known as the Building Internet of Things (BIoT).

To meet this demand, the CytextodOne commercial building offering is available nationwide and provides services, product integration and customized applications.

Benefits of CytexOne Commercial Building Solutions

● Increased energy efficiency through holistic control of all building systems

● Monitoring of valuable assets that may be sensitive to the environment

● Automation of key building maintenance activities to reduce costs of staff

● Tech retrofit options leveraging systems already in place while upgrading to BIoT

CytexOne combines technology integration with key business objectives for smarter energy management, system automation and the optimization and protection of assets in the commercial building space. Proven solutions are deployed to address physical security and surveillance, energy monitoring via smartly connected HVAC, intelligent lighting, smart entries and door locks.

“The BIoT has evolved rapidly from being an interesting concept to a ‘must-have’ business resource in commercial buildings,” said Dan Levine, CEO of CytexOne. “Carefully planned integration is the key, enabling automation, data gathering and environmental monitoring that positively impacts key operational aspects of commercial buildings. The benefits are substantial and the time is now to future proof buildings.”

Specific building systems addressed include:

  • Heating and cooling (HVAC systems)
  • Security and surveillance
  • Monitoring of utilities
  • Digital signage in lobbies
  • Water/plumbing and sprinkler systems

Environmental Data Drives Building Performance

CytexOne helps building managers capture and gather key business information and data at a low cost, refining the actions of people and machines, and formulating proactive steps based on if/then scenarios to make buildings smart. This is enabled by a set of automation technologies and the application of machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Examples of connected objects include wall-mounted cameras, C02 and smoke detectors, sunlight sensors, smart electrical outlets and televisions.

Retrofit without Ripping Out

Preserving investments is a key to IoT value. With CytexOne, newer IoT products are integrated to work with existing building systems to get systems running quickly while reaping the rewards of automation.

Costly assets need to be protected. Temperature and humidity controlled environments are essential in commercial buildings that may store expensive goods and products. These assets, such as artwork, antiques, or wood stock, may be sensitive to light or humidity. CytexOne smart building solutions monitor and alert to any changes that could cause damage and can automatically shut off a water valve or close window shades.

Atlas Monitoring

CytexOne integrates and orchestrates new and existing devices, systems, software, and sensors with CytexOne SmartRacks and NOC-based IoT monitoring and management platform, Atlas, to provide fully managed, self-healing commercial building solutions that are remotely monitored 24/7/365 for the health of industrial environments.
