According to the Korea Herald, the tech giant will unveil its smart building system – called b.IoT – on October 18 in Seoul. The system, says the newspaper, is designed to be able to automatically control the temperature and lighting of buildings by using various sensors and other information provided by closed-circuit TVs.

The system will both reduce waste and improve the workplace environment by allowing heating and air conditioning systems to be turned on before workers arrive, and detect in real time when a room is not being used so power can be turned off. According to the reports, the system can also be used in concert with security resources.

“In the past, IoT use has generally been centered on home applications, but if it can be applied to buildings it can greatly expand scale of the market,” a Samsung executive is reported to have said. “There has been overseas interest in the new solution and by using company buildings as test beds and working out any bugs Samsung can move to tap into the export market.”

According to the paper, Samsung plans to use the b.IoT solution in its Spire Building in Warsaw, Poland, as well as in two of its local R&D campuses in South Korea. The reports did not indicate if or when the company plans to roll out the new smart building management system to commercial users.
