Adesto Technologies announced it is enabling smarter buildings through insights into energy management and other operational data through services running on the IBM Watson IoT platform. Adesto, through its recent acquisition of Echelon Corporation, has been selling its Open Embedded IoT Platform into the building automation and energy management industry for over two decades. Adesto’s SmartServer IoT edge server platform features built-in device and data management for sensors, meters, actuators and controllers in buildings, through various emerging and traditional protocols including BACnet, LonWorks, Modbus, and others.
The IBM Watson IoT Platform is a managed, cloud-hosted service designed to make it simple to derive value from IoT devices. It enables organizations to capture and explore data for devices, equipment, and machines, and discover insights that can drive better decision-making. IBM Tririga Building Insights is built on the Watson IoT Platform and uses AI analytics to surface building inefficiencies without the need for dedicated data scientists. The powerful capabilities of the IBM Watson IoT platform combined with the seamless connectivity of rich data from Adesto’s SmartServer IoT can provide facility managers with deep insights into energy consumption and other operational aspects of a building.
