Reduce your energy costs by automating your building's heating
Reduce your energy consumption by up to 10% – along with the costs and CO2 emissions that go with it. At the same time, you can increase your tenants’ comfort and safisfaction. Telia Heating Optimization lets you monitor and automate your buildings' heating systems to optimize the energy they use. It's a win-win-win for tenants, building owners and the environment.
How Telia Heating Optimization works
( 1 ) Wireless sensors are positioned inside the building to collect temperature and humidity information. These are battery powered for ease-of-installation.
( 2 ) The Telia IoT Platform collects and analyzes the data to be displayed on easy-to-use, web-based dashboards.
( 3 ) Data is then sent to the temperature control system that automatically adjusts the building heating system. Data can be sent directly to the control system if its location allows it to be collected. Otherwise, a Telia IoT Edge gateway can be installed to enable wireless connectivity and additional security for the solution.
Note: The solution currently supports buildings connected to district heating. Additional heating systems will be supported in the future.
A platform to build on
The Telia IoT platform enables building managers to monitor and analyze the temperature and energy usage inside their buildings. This means they can identify patterns and make accurate predictions in order to minimize energy wastage.
When sensors are activated, the IoT SIMs will auto-connect to the platform to enable plug-n-play simplicity. The Telia IoT Platform is an open platform to support best-of-breed digital services of today, as well as those that will emerge in the future – without the danger of vendor lock in.
Connectivity designed for deep indoor penetration
Our wireless temperature and humidity sensors are connected by Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) connectivity. This is part of the ‘massive IoT’ component of 5G. It is designed to reach further and penetrate deeper into buildings than traditional IoT connectivity. This means sensors can work deep inside buildings as well as underground.
Because they’re wireless and plug-n-play, they’re simple to install. And because they use so little power, they can last years on a single battery. Learn more
Security is non-negotiable. It has to be built into every level of your solution by design. Otherwise, you are opening yourself up to the risks that aren't worth taking. Telia Heating Optimization provides security on every level from the ground up.
Secure digital infrastructure
Telia owns and operates the underlying digital infrastructure – the largest in the Nordics and Baltics
Proven security standards
Indoor sensors use highly secure NB-IoT connectivity, which inherits the proven security of LTE & GSM standards
Separation from public Internet
As an added security option, connectivity to your building control system can be done using a Telia IoT Edge gateway – sending data via 4G/5G with VPN separation from the public Internet
The Telia IoT Platform lets you control access and priveleges so you know exactly who is using the system
Control and automate your heating system
The interface that connects the building's installed unit with the Telia IoT Platform, is the KTC SRD5000. It enables building managers to control their heating system remotely or onsite via manual control. Data from KTC's algorithms is incorporated in the monitor, control and automate functionality of the Telia IoT Platform.
KTC have over 35 years of expertise in optimizing building energy systems. To date they have optimized more than 30 000 buildings across the Nordics.
