Kontrol Technologies Corp. a leader in smart buildings and cities through IoT, Cloud and SaaS technology is pleased to announce that it has been selected by a leading commercial real estate manager and developer (“Commercial Manager“) to provide real-time viral detection data and insights.
“The re-opening of the economy and getting back to normal is an important application for BioCloud,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO. “Monitoring ambient air, HVAC systems, offices and creating safer spaces is appealing both to landlords and their tenants. Commercial real estate has been negatively impacted by the pandemic, with many working from home, and ongoing viral detection may be part of a comprehensive re-opening solution.”
Data and Safer Space Insight Model
Following numerous discussions with potential customers and distribution partners the Company will begin to offer a multi-week data and insight opportunity for larger opportunities where there is scale potential across an operating portfolio. This is a strategic initiative driven by market feedback.
Kontrol has installed multiple BioCloud units for the Commercial Manager to deliver real-time data and insights over a two-week period. The Commercial Manager has placed the BioCloud units in the offices of their commercial tenants and on one main HVAC system. Following the two-week period, the Commercial Manager will have the ability to purchase or lease the BioCloud units or continue on a monthly hardware as a service plan.
“Our view is that this is a great approach to providing access to real-time data and insights and provides organizations the ability to interact and experience BioCloud in real-time,” says Gary Saunders, President of Kontrol BioCloud.
The Commercial Manager operates multi-tenanted commercial office towers and multi-residential towers in Ontario. For industry competitive purposes the Commercial Manager will not be named at this time.
