What is IoT and how can it help housing providers address their business issues. Is it here today, can we make it happen, and how do we manage the huge volumes of data generated by IoT projects in a secure way?
Capita - Stewart Davison, Head of Business Development
'Show me the money! Housing, IoT and how we can achieve ROI' – Self-surveying properties, smart meters and smart homes offer so much promise, but how do they work in the real world and where do you start? IoT has sometimes been called a 'technology looking for an application'. Radical change for asset management, smart devices and the management of public spaces is starting to become a reality, so now's the time to make sure your organisation is getting ready to take advantage. In this session, Capita will discuss how it has been researching and developing IoT solutions for social housing, the lessons learnt from a pilot with a social housing provider and how sensor-based technologies may provide real return on investment.

The presentation focuses on Flagship’s IoT pilot project currently being trialled in Norfolk. It covers the technology used, and the benefits seen. The results will convince anyone that taking a risk on new, innovative technologies can lead to fantastic results for both housing providers and your tenants. The presentation will also cover the second phase of our pilot, using IoT technology to solve the age-old problems of ‘no access’ to a property, fuel poverty, fire-alarm testing, and many more issues that housing providers see every day.
