How IoT Works-1

IoT & Tracking Applications

  • Detection of Imminent boiler failure
  • Lighting Failure detection
  • Lift Failures
  • Key Management
  • Service Vehicle Tracking, Driver Behaviour Alerts & Fuel Monitoring
  • Presence of Fire Extinguishers
  • Fire Alarm activation pattern tracking & management
  • AOVs Manually Opened
  • Laundry room equipment monitoring to aid service schedules
  • Air quality monitoring - levels of CO2, carbon monoxide and other potentially hazardous elements
  • Water detection: Leaks or flooding in buildings may go undetected, causing damage to buildings & assets
  • Panic buttons: Vulnerable residents may fall in their home and not be able to call for help
  • Temperature monitoring: alerts when it is too high or low help maintain living standards & energy efficiency
  • People monitoring: Outside sheltered areas may be used by rough sleepers or gangs who can intimidate residents, cause fire risks or engage in illicit activities, CCTV is often compromised and isn’t proactively monitored so there is no consistent way of identifying areas that need intervention.

Origin Housing Case Study

Origin Housing

Industry Sector: Housing Associations
Origin web image-1

As a registered social landlord, Origin Housing manage over 6,800 homes in London and Hertfordshire. The Chief Technology Solutions Manager is responsible for creating sustainable monitoring and automation capabilities for their properties. The purpose of this project was to help join the dots between real business challenges facing Origin Housing and the opportunities that come with the set of technologies often referred to as ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). 

The important initial stages of this project were the investigation stages, taking the time to talk to the key stakeholders at Origin Housing and understanding their current challenges, ways of working and immediate priorities. This discovery process led to the categorisation of three key areas of objectives that then developed into the identification of 27 individual use cases that could be grouped into 5 key categories:

  • Managing Assets
  • Misuse of Spaces
  • Key/access
  • Management of Resident Services
  • Letting Turnaround

“The exploratory process of working with Foresolutions has been really fruitful. Not only have we been presented with clear, actionable solutions to problems we had already identified, there are also a wealth of additional use cases that have been uncovered through logically talking through our business processes. Just by deploying the lift sensors we’ve already saved ourselves from repeat reactive expenditure on repairs, and I’ve no doubt we’ll see more examples of not only cost savings but improvements to the living conditions and quality of shared spaces for our residents.”
