Sunpartner collaborates with IDOSENS to create an electronic platform to manage the functions of autonomous connected smart windows
Sunpartner Technologies and IDOSENS are convinced that self-powered and remotely connected smart window can accelerate the deployment of new glass functions out in the field, through its « plug and play » approach.
Both companies develop and industrialize the sensor platform and local communication modules (Bluetooth) and remote (LoRa via a private or public operator) through a partnership agreement signed in October 2016.
This platform, associated with Wysips® Glass, allows facade builders and window manufacturers to offer a smart window connected to the BMS (Building Management System). This solution ensures the control of all functions of the autonomous smart and connected window :
– Management and storage of solar energy
– Remote communication protocols
– Smart glass management (tactile, heating, sensors, dimming windows, etc)
– Integration and management of sensors
– Operating system to receive application programs.
François Hede, IDOSENS Founder and CEO, says: « Because intelligent glazing applications aimed by Sunpartner Technologies prefigure tomorrow’s building management system, IDOSENS is enthusiastic, as a specialist of data collection and transport solutions, to co-develop this innovation. This partnership allows us to meet the needs of key players in the construction market in a targeted and relevant manner. «
