Glide Group announces launch of the Glide Labs product suite, through its bespoke range of Energy Management IoT Technologies.

Glide Group’s Glide Labs is now available to customers in the UK and will provide them with the ability to gain access to real-time data and seamlessly manage properties.

There are currently seven billion IoT-connected devices worldwide.

However, with digital demand only expected to grow, this number is expected to increase over the next few years.

Forecasts suggest that by 2030, the number of IoT-connected devices will reach over 25 billion. 

For property managers, this continued innovation into IoT technology allows for a more streamlined operation, with automated and highly accurate processes significantly reducing the amount of time spent manually completing tasks.

“Glide Labs enables us to support clients’ focus on the environment and building efficiency. Our solution offers full transparency for usage and waste to empower our clients and their residents with efficient building management. As we rollout this solution into the Build to Rent and Flexible workspace vertices, we can now support our clients with growing demands for data-driven action to better developments and their goals for Net Zero or ESG ratings.”

Nazif Jahanzeb, IoT Product Manager, Glide Group

Providing this level of operational efficiency to its customers, Glide Labs integrates the organisation’s expanding fibre infrastructure and growing fibre cities campaigns with its current IoT portfolio of five technologies.

The five technologies are: sub-metering & energy analytics which identifies and reduces energy waste in real-time and automates energy-saving interventions; footfall and people counting analytics which monitors occupancy levels to identify trends and leverage insights for future planning; environmental condition monitoring which tracks temperature, humidity, CO2 levels, TVOC, noise and motion to make smarter environmental decisions; water leak management which monitors leaks to prevent damage and perform necessary maintenance; and legionella risk assessment which removes the need for manual temperature recording and ensures water systems remain legionella-free.

Glide Group’s end-to-end solution provides clarity to Build to Rent building owners and operators that empowers residents or users to make actionable changes for the betterment of the developments.
