Basildon Council has become the first local authority to implement Morgan Sindall Property Services’ Goldeni energy-saving software.
The Goldeni technology uses interconnected sensors to provide housing providers and tenants with real-time, actionable insights to help them ensure their properties are healthy, legally compliant and more energy efficient.
The platform collects data on internal environmental conditions, including temperature, air pressure, light levels, humidity and carbon dioxide. Goldeni also detects for water leaks and monitors electricity and gas consumption, and by using intelligent boiler technology, it provides tenants with more efficient boiler operations.
Sensors from multiple properties communicate with external LoRaWAN gateways providing a smart-city-ready network of battery-operated devices. These gateways provide a wireless communications network and due to their unlicenced spectrum usage, they are more cost effective than traditional SIM-operated solutions.
