Smart buildings use embedded AI and automation to optimize their operations, increase efficiency, and improve their occupants' comfort, safety, and well-being. To secure them from data breaches, IoE Corp has developed Eden, a system that provides embedded AI and IoT in smart buildings with security beyond cyber.

A smart building can be equipped with various systems and devices to monitor and control various aspects of the building environment, such as lighting, temperature, air quality, and security. These embedded AI and Internet of Things (IoT) systems can be interconnected and controlled through a central management platform, which can be accessed remotely and provide real-time data insights and analytics to building managers and owners.

Smart buildings can also incorporate renewable energy sources, such as solar panels or geothermal systems, to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. Additionally, they can use sensors and analytics to optimize resource usage, such as water and electricity, and identify potential maintenance issues before they become significant problems.

The overall goal of a smart building is to provide a sustainable, comfortable, efficient, and productive environment for its occupants while minimizing its impact on the environment and reducing operating costs.

How smart buildings can revolutionize the real estate industry

The new generation of buildings that use advanced technology to improve their efficiency, security, and overall functionality are equipped with a range of sensors and IoT devices that collect and analyze data about the building's environment, energy consumption, occupancy, and more. The information gathered from these sensors can be used to optimize the building's performance, reduce energy consumption, improve safety, and enhance occupant experience.

Embedded AI in smart buildings can be used for a variety of purposes. Some of the most impactful uses include energy efficiency (embedded AI can optimize energy usage by automatically adjusting lighting, heating, and cooling systems to match occupancy patterns, weather conditions, and energy demand), security (AI-powered security systems can detect and respond to potential threats in real-time, such as unauthorized access, suspicious behavior, or unusual activity), occupant comfort (embedded AI can monitor and adjust the environment to optimize comfort and productivity for occupants based on individual preferences and needs) and space optimization (AI can help optimize space usage by analyzing occupancy patterns and adjusting space allocation accordingly).

IoT provides even more benefits to smart buildings, including predictive maintenance (IoT-enabled devices can detect and diagnose equipment failures in real-time, allowing for proactive maintenance and minimizing downtime), increased productivity (IoT can help streamline building operations, enabling building managers to focus on higher-value tasks and improving overall efficiency) and better data-driven decision-making (IoT sensors can collect and analyze data on building performance, providing valuable insights for building managers to optimize operations and improve overall building performance).

Challenges for the implementation of IoT and embedded AI in a smart building

You may face several challenges when trying to implement IoT and embedded AI to get a smart building up and running. First, smart buildings generate vast amounts of data, which must be effectively managed and secured to prevent data breaches and cyberattacks. Therefore, robust data management and security protocols must be implemented to protect the sensitive information collected from the building's sensors and devices.

Another issue is that IoT devices and embedded AI systems from different vendors may not be compatible with each other, which can result in communication breakdowns and operational inefficiencies. Hence, there is a need to ensure that all devices and systems used in a smart building are interoperable and can communicate seamlessly.

Developing and implementing smart building technologies also requires technical expertise that may be lacking in some real estate companies. Further, the cost of implementing smart building technologies can be high, especially for older buildings that require significant retrofitting. You must carefully evaluate the costs and benefits of implementing smart building technologies and determine the most cost-effective approach. And at last, smart buildings can be overwhelming for users unfamiliar with automated systems, so smart building technologies must be as user-friendly and intuitive as possible.

IoE Corps Eden System

To solve many of these problems, especially with cyber security, IoE Corp has developed Eden. This system gives potential customers security beyond cyber, as it's not connected to the World Wide Web (WWW) but runs on the core internet. Since it's a closed system on another layer of the internet than WWW, nobody can hack it from North Korea or Russia. There are no possibilities for data breaches and extortion. At the same time, this makes Eden user-friendly. There is no longer any need for long, complicated passwords because Eden works like a walled garden. Only the people who should have access to the network have access.

IoE Corp's Eden presents an all-in-edge approach where truly decentralized functionalities offer real tangible solutions for households. Prompting end-user security and privacy and eliminating the forced centralized server farms (i.e., the cloud) results in human-first-tech empowerment. Thus, IoE Corp's smart buildings and apartments consistently provide service regardless of external actuators and within the UN's 17 SDGs focus.

A human-first tech approach resolves many current centralized solutions risks and fluctuating costs. It also functions inside a sustainable computing structure, which is another asset for not just millennials, but the whole of society as we live in a moment where sustainability has become paramount for the well-being of the planet's ecosystem. If you use a reliable, secure, private, scalable, decentralized software infrastructure, like IoE Corp's Eden System, igniting smart buildings becomes an easy step.

Snapshot of a bright and smooth future with Eden

Let's take a snapshot of the future. Picture your smart building in a context connected to IoE Corps Eden System.

Eden is installed at the fuse box; it connects as an IoE node to the internet's core. No device inside the gateway is directly exposed to unsecured traffic from the WWW.

Smart hubs are installed behind all outlets and receive a perfect connection over the normal fiber network. Together the hubs create a WiFi mesh. The hubs sensor everything from temperature to air quality. The control system and the hubs create a computing cluster, a private edge-walled garden. The system can be constructed with built-in redundancy for both computing and connectivity.

If your fiber goes down, a 5G connection kicks in, so you should never be without the digital services you need. All the embedded AI and services are deployed on your encrypted private ultra-edge, and except for critical data such as fire and gas, only approved data gets shared externally.

And there's more to it. The technology can easily be installed or replaced by any certified electrician. No special education or setup tools are needed, and Eden is fully autonomous. As an additional bonus, the system components can be delivered to a construction site or home and installed without any specialist.

To revolutionize something, it needs to be simple and efficient. The IoE Corp Smart Building technology is exactly that.
