The Lev Ba’ir BTC project in Bnei Brak, Israel, is an office and workspace complex for rent that provides its customers with a complete package of services at a fixed monthly cost.
BTC management identified that electricity bills are high because the customers of the complex, at the end of their working day, often leave without turning off the lights, air conditioning or both, causing waste of energy and inflated electricity bills. BTC management approached Homismart and asked them to examine and improve the energy use in the offices and building.
Homismart specialises in building management solutions. These solutions are activated from an application that also operates the smart electrical system that controls all electrical and electronic devices in homes and businesses.
In order to offer an optimal solution for electricity efficiency in the BTC project, Homismart chose to integrate the building’s electrical system with PIMA’s FORCE144 alarm system. Homismart chose the FORCE144 system because of its reliability and integration with their system. In addition, Yair Mizrahi, CEO of Homismart, noted, “the availability, flexibility and quick response of PIMA R&D; team have greatly aided integration. We are planning to use this solution for future projects. “
FORCE144 is an advanced hybrid alarm system that communicates with passive infrared motion detectors (PIR). The PIR detector, installed in each workspace, detects the presence of a person in the space. When no presence has been detected by the system using the PIR detector, the lights and air conditioner will turn off. The result has been a 30% savings in electricity costs.
