A joint mission
WinWire and Candi began working for a client looking to put together a solution around smart buildings. The customer wanted to manage their facility’s costs and energy utilization with the goal of achieving a net zero energy footprint. Both WinWire and Candi knew that using an IoT solution would help them successfully meet their client’s needs.
WinWire knew they could show the client a great dashboard that would reveal new insights and help make actionable decisions about facility costs. But first they had to get the data from the facility onto their platform. “From an IoT perspective, the first thing we need is data. The way we get that data is through sensors and small devices,” says Goel.
Candi and WinWire’s specialties complement each other and form the two halves necessary to create complete, end-to-end IoT solutions. Candi works to gather data from different sensors and devices, both legacy and new, through multi-language protocol conversion. WinWire takes all of the data from these devices, harnessed by Candi, and creates dashboards that visualize the information in an actionable way to enable companies to make informed decisions.
“We enable end-to-end solutions, by connecting data and devices at the edge to best-in-class analytics and service providers in the cloud. Integrating, normalizing and securing data traffic between countless multi-protocol edge devices and cloud services requires deep expertise not found in most all-in-one solutions. Deploying a device and data platform allows WinWire to focus on their domain of building compelling apps and services,” says Doug Harp, Vice President of Operation, Candi Control.
One of the most disruptive promises of the Internet of Things is that data can quickly be gathered and acted upon to create new efficiencies, at a fraction of the cost of traditional equipment and software. Together, WinWire and Candi Controls are delivering on the promise of IoT by significantly reducing the cost of getting and presenting edge data in cloud-based analytics.
