Data-driven smart technology has tremendous benefits for the people who own, manage, maintain, and occupy commercial buildings. But OEMs and PropTech also have much to gain from data infrastructure monitoring and alerting. And it begins with secure integration.

Why Data Infrastructure Monitoring and Alerting Matters to OEMs

Smart buildings require robust data infrastructure. Monitoring and alerting according to real-time data is essential to streamlining building operations, improving the user experience, and defending against cyberattacks. It is no wonder that building owners and facility managers are increasingly seeking out products that allow them to harness the full potential of smart technology

Successful OEMs are responding to that demand by offering equipment purpose-built for smart buildings. An advanced integration platform makes integration of that equipment easier, less expensive, and faster than relying on custom integration code. As a result, upgrades and retrofits become more appealing—and more achievable—for building owners.

An integration platform also allows OEMs to securely digitize products and improve services. It can even create opportunities to add new service-based offerings and unlock revenue streams. 

For example, an HVAC manufacturer can pair the sale of equipment with a value-added intelligent monitoring and maintenance service. That service goes beyond traditional maintenance; when data drives the schedule, maintenance is streamlined, the equipment life cycle is expanded, and customer satisfaction improves dramatically. Such services are an innovative way for OEMs to evolve, meet the changing needs of customers, and attract new business. 

Integration is the Future of PropTech 

From property management to building design, sales to refurbishment, the PropTech industry offers innovative tools for virtually every aspect of creating, marketing, monitoring, and improving building equipment. But in a rapidly growing and increasingly competitive market, customers are looking for sophisticated products and services that go beyond the basics—and they have no shortage of options. Well-integrated PropTech that draws on the power of building data to provide meaningful solutions stands out in the field. 

Whether your focus is optimizing and improving services, boosting productivity, or strengthening security—or all of the above—a state-of-the-art integration engine is critical. For example, a scheduling app for hybrid workplaces is significantly more useful if users can see whether work areas are currently occupied or predicted to be shortly. An app that’s integrated with an intelligent building management platform and occupancy sensors makes this possible, transforming the app into a powerful tool for employers and employees alike. 

When PropTech has the advantage of data infrastructure monitoring and alerting, the possibilities are virtually endless.

The Value of Security

For OEMs and the PropTech industry, cybersecurity must be a top priority. A cutting-edge integration platform, like IOT Jetstream, ensures seamless communication between users, equipment, and third-party apps while offering access to real-time equipment utilization and high-level security at each data handoff point. With secure integration, OEMs and PropTech products and services are part of a protected ecosystem that makes building data infrastructure monitoring and alerting more valuable than ever before.
