In what is believed to be a world first, Glasgow based SME iOpt Assets has won a £1 million contract designed to improve the quality of life of thousands of local authority tenants.
The company beat competitors from Sweden, the Netherlands and Ireland in a competitive tender from Renfrewshire Council.
To deliver the contract, iOpt Assets will install real-time monitors in the Council’s social housing stock to measure temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide and send data wirelessly to a centralised management system. The system will operate over a LoRaWAN network.
Sensors will initially be fitted in empty properties being prepared for new tenants, who will also be supported with energy efficiency advice and guidance.
