Overkiz for connected buildings

In this era of collecting, harvesting, transmitting, analyzing, and sharing data, gone are the days of inanimate, “empty shell” buildings.

Smart and functional, connected buildings meet the needs of their occupants through value-added services, all while optimizing energy efficiency and building operations for property managers.

Overkiz is committed to improving environmental performance, quality of life, and convenience in homes, non-residential buildings, and the data economy, as demonstrated by its signing of the “Solidarity-Based and Human-Centric Connected Buildings” charter* in late 2017.

How? By developing solutions around its three core values: innovation, security, and interoperability

A building as a scalable, configurable, value-added platform

When it comes to smart buildings, the building sector, energy suppliers, maintenance providers, manufacturers, and real estate companies are calling for sustainable, highly functional buildings that are wholly consistent with the area, factor in economical and sociologically changes, and suit all stages of the life of their occupants.
To meet this need, Overkiz offers a full range of white-label products, services, and smart tools to help professionals roll out a dedicated IoT solution.
It starts with the Hattara® DIN Rail home automation box, which is installed directly onto the electrical panel. This smart controller, designed primarily for new construction projects, makes it possible to connect and control all types of equipment remotely, including roller shutters, lights, heating systems, access devices, and more.

Equipped with multiple radio modules (and capable of supporting up to four), the controller comes with an application for installers, created specifically to optimize their work during a building’s construction and to make it easier to pair devices within minutes, even without an internet connection.

With its user application, a dedicated cloud infrastructure, an e-maintenance tool, and APIs, Hattara® DIN Rail is compatible with more than 5,000 products and can be customized to the customer’s colors and logo.

Overkiz supports buildings in their digital transition. From offices to schools, hospitals, and homes, we create the opportunity for our customers to achieve their smart home and smart building goals, by offering highly secure, tailor-made solutions through a vast, well-managed, and scalable ecosystem.

Maintenance in the era of IoT

Predictive maintenance initiatives saved $17 billion for companies around the world in 2018**, even with a growing number of suppliers. What’s more, 75% of the total cost of a building comes from its operation and maintenance, compared to 5% for its design and 20% for its constructions. Not surprisingly, building maintenance is a key issue for operators.

Overkiz understands the complexity and importance of monitoring and maintenance operations for IoT devices.
That’s why we offer a powerful real-time remote monitoring and predictive maintenance solution.
Our highly intuitive online enterprise software allows you to perform maintenance and monitoring for all installed equipment, from anywhere and at any time, through the following features:

  •  Mapping of all installations 
  •  Remote monitoring of all   products 
  •  Real-time alerts in case of an equipment failure 
  •  Real-time dashboard (technical and usage data)

The benefits of connected buildings are clear from the outset, including more efficiency for technicians, who work under better conditions and make better use of their on-site service time, lower operating costs, proactive communication, lower after-sales costs, and more.
So many advantages that help companies rise above the competition and leverage their potential.

By anticipating service needs and having a better understanding of how solutions are used and misused, thanks to user behavior analyses, we boost satisfaction among our customers and building occupants, who now value service over the product.

Building intelligence: moving toward greater services

By offering solutions that everyone can grasp and understand, Overkiz wants to make IoT more accessible and reassure the most uncertain:

Competing protocols are still an obstacle for solutions entering the mass market. Overkiz breaks down these technological barriers to entry and is positioned above the fray, supporting interoperability, easy integration, and technical expertise.

That’s why Overkiz solutions are creating so much buzz, especially in real estate.
In France alone, three big names in real estate are integrating Overkiz into their connected homes.
Nexity, Bouygues Immobilier, and the Pichet Group now offer flexible buildings in their portfolio, designed around what users expect and offering high added value through services, such as options to control home automation equipment from home or remotely, link with the neighborhood, interact directly with the property manager, and find information about the local area.
To top it all off, these services are often included in the price of the home, at no extra cost to the occupant.

 

And the available possibilities go beyond the residential sector, with technology exponentially increasing the number of use cases, both in the home and in business.

By partnering with a wide range of partners, including real estate companies, service providers, equipment manufacturers, smart web-based platforms (Amazon Alexa, Google Home), by making its interoperable platform the backbone of this ecosystem, and by providing access to its APIs, Overkiz is promoting cloud-to-cloud communication and expanding what is possible in terms of services, like space management (one-click meeting room reservations, office and classroom occupancy rate calculations, etc.), energy management (energy control, consumption management, etc.), and information management within buildings, assets, and facility management (system lifecycle management).

The building sector now has the keys to adopt technology or stay the course, while also taking care of marketing and customer service.
