The most prominent applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) are driverless cars and home appliances. In the world of fire safety, however, its most exciting application may be sensors in buildings. The collection and application of atmospheric data could dramatically alter our approach to fire prevention and firefighting and ultimately help to save lives.
IoT sensors form a major part of what are known as ‘smart buildings’. Smart buildings are properties controlled in part by autonomous computer software, known as Building Management Systems (BMS). These sensors can maintain a specific temperature in different rooms; turn lights on and off, and other tasks, which benefit from external data.
GS Technologies Ltd (LON:GST), through its subsidiary, EMS Wiring Systems Pte. Ltd, provides services in the “Smart Building” sector. Smart Building is a diverse term that refers to the technological capabilities of buildings and other work place facilities.
