IoT to create healthier homes

Improving social housing

Better management of social housing using IoT can enable the early detection of damp. Corrective actions can then be taken to maintain healthy conditions to live in and prevent damage to buildings and their contents.

Sensors distributed in rooms can assess humidity, temperature and carbon dioxide levels.  The data gathered from these sensors can also act as an indicator of fuel poverty, where a tenant cannot adequately heat their home.

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Smart towns and cities

Improving social housing is one of the Smart towns and cities subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.


Sector knowledge

Within the FutureTech programme, CENSIS met with people from different sectors to hear their ideas about the transformative potential of IoT.

IoT technology will transform business operations across Scotland and impact every sector of the economy.
