Internet of Things How IoT Will Transform The Real Estate Industry by vervesys September 17, 2019 it workEspecially for the real estate industry, IoT at a first glance does not seem very relevant, but if you take a closer look, IoT has the potential to radically change the way things work. With changing customer preferences and everchanging demands, businesses will see IoT playing an increasingly important role in real estate. So, what exactly does IoT mean for the real estate industry? Disruptive technologies fuel the growth of smart spaces. There has been a steady rise in devices and sensors being used for capturing data. IoT enables real estate providers to create differentiated value to customers by providing smart solutions to control various systems at home, office and other spaces. Capturing data from sensors combined with the power of analytics gives IoT the potential to offer insights that could transform the way real estate industry traditionally works. IoT makes spaces ‘smart’ On a constant quest for automation that could make life easier, IoT offers real estate industry with smart devices that not only do that but also offer operational efficiency and better economic benefits. Data from devices can be gathered, analyzed and users can be notified of any irregularities in the functions. IoT has a significant impact on energy efficiency Especially in the real estate industry, IoT could play a key role in capturing the pattern of energy consumption and initiate preventive maintenance. This will ensure smooth operations and can be directly translated to tangible benefits such as operational cost reduction and intangible benefits such as seamless operations. IoT helps faster decisions Because IoT gathers enough data and has the ability to analyze it, maintenance decisions could be more predictive rather than reactive. It speeds up the entire decision-making process. Many times, the lack of inoperability between the devices create a hindrance in the effective use of IoT. IoT, applied in the right way could add value to many processes in the real estate industry and will drive the way businesses work in the future.
