Siemens, Telefonica team on smart building systems
Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Telefónica Tech have signed a deal to provide end-to-end infrastructure from the data centre to the sensor node for smart buildings in Spain.
The agreement enables both companies to present a joint offering with physical security, monitoring and operational and energy efficiency, as well as user experience and the digitalization of services across a connected network. They will also offer an infrastructure for data collection and analysis.
Siemens and Telefónica Tech will offer comprehensive solutions which protect buildings from fires, and monitor entry points and potential intrusions with closed-circuit television (CCTV), including the possibility of video analysis using machine learning. It will also allow other joint solutions related to optimization such as smart lighting, environmental monitoring, predictive maintenance, de-escalation monitoring, smart parking, occupancy and capacity management, including audio-visual and space reservation solutions.
