Edge Computing for IoT in Buildings

Edge IoT Hardware, Software, and Services for Commercial Buildings: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

In the commercial buildings sector, stakeholders are beginning to adopt edge computing technology to help create more intelligent and efficient facilities. The concept of edge computing is to distribute the power of data processing to the fringes of a system, giving devices, sensors, and gateways the power to act or make decisions locally and not always rely on a cloud environment. Edge computing aligns well with building efficiency goals since computing at the edge can in some cases handle data processes locally as well or better than sending the data to a cloud—and do so at lower cost.

Edge computing also fits with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology trend, which some buildings are adopting in the form of smart meters, smart thermostats, occupancy sensors, and advanced lighting systems. When IoT technologies such as these integrate with edge computing power, the combination can yield positive benefits for a building. For instance, a well-designed HVAC system that leverages an edge IoT infrastructure could produce significant savings through its ability to react quickly to subtle changes in air temperature or occupancy levels and intelligently make automated adjustments at the optimal time.
