Warwick University trials micro-control of space heating

Published:  01 November, 2013

Warwick University is retro-fitting wireless systems to provide micro-management of the heating system in its social-sciences building. The system hands over control to the building-management team and the building’s occupants, who will individually be able to use their smart phones and tablet computers to control heating on a room-by-room basis.

Home-automation specialist JSJS Design is working with Warwick Manufacturing Group and the university’s estates office to bring its technology into commercial building management. The project has won £495 000 in support from the Technology Strategy Board and will enable JSJS to test Lightwave RF technology on a large complex building.

John Shermer, managing director of JSJS said, ‘This is an ideal showcase for the automation systems we have developed in a non-domestic environment. It will highlight the potential of retrofitting smart technologies into existing buildings to increase efficiencies and improve the user experience of such technology. If this project is successful then we hope to provide the technology to a much broader section both within Warwick University and other universities nationally.’
