The old adage “you can’t control what you don’t measure” has never been more true than it is today in the built environment. Stakeholders are challenged with balancing a plethora of constraints: occupant health and safety requirements, thermal comfort guidelines, energy management, equipment maintenance and facilities management. Without continuous data and feedback, it is near impossible to monitor impacts of operational changes, much less establish benchmark performance metrics for these areas.


In this session, we will explore the types of IoT sensors that can be installed within a building to provide the data allowing building operators and managers to effectively monitor a healthy building. We will talk about the different types of data points that can be generated and how the data can be integrated into an existing building control system. Then we will discuss case studies showing how sensor deployments at several buildings in the Washington DC region have led to continuous improvement and positive outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify various types of IoT sensors and the data they generate.

  2. Understand relationships between requirements and constraints for Indoor Air Quality, energy efficiency and facilities management.

  3. Understand how to use IoT and IAQ sensor data to benefit occupant health and comfort, energy use and equipment maintenance.

  4. Recognize how IoT sensor deployment and data analytics can be a revenue generator.
