Grinn’s own smart metering system, Rhino, measures utilities in large buildings to help move from site management to site optimisation. Wireless sensors feed a cloud repository with up-to-the-minute data that lets building managers calibrate buildings to the perfect output and make huge long and short term savings.
THE STORY OF OUR SUCCESS
Rhino system combines climate control with remote real-time parameters monitoring to reduce energy and other media consumption and deliver savings while ensuring product safety. While measuring every utility and the accompanying processes, data is aggregated and analysed in one place. The system is simple to use and can be rolled out as needed, to measure one single point or a whole site and a complex range of parameters.
HOW GRINN BRINGS THE BENEFIT
But the real benefit is that Rhino is not a one-size-fits-all solution. As buildings change and managers look for ever greater savings, Rhino allows for the addition of custom modules tailored to specific customers' needs—meaning there is no limit to the savings as more data gives more insight into how buildings can be optimised.
When designing our own custom system, we focused on how we could save money for the customer at every turn—from installation to ongoing usage. The wireless system means simple fitting and no cabling costs, and cloud data storage takes away the need for expensive on-premises hardware.
From homes to hospitals, street lights to ski lopes, there's a growing range of IoT solutions powered by Grinn. Here are just some of them.
