Helping to build a digital twin

cThings have been working with Integrated Environmental Solutions, a leader in using technology and analytics to optimise the design and operation of buildings.

IES have adopted the cThings Cloud IoT Platform to allow for the collection and aggregation of data from various sensors and meters. This has made it possible for them to construct a digital twin of their client’s properties, enabling them to use data to inform and enhance the operational performance of buildings.

cThings have helped to reliably collect the performance data from numerous devices, each employing different communication protocols and incorporating them into a single source of standardised data. This data is then delivered to the ISE platform in real-time using our webhook technology. In scenarios where historic data is required for more in-depth analytics, this is made possible using our simple to use API.

With the use of the cThings Cloud IoT Platform, the time required to start providing results to the customer has been shortened by months and costs reduced by thousands of pounds.

“In a world where data is part of our lives and big data become reality, being able to gather data in an easy and fast way is very important. cThings made this possible allowing us to easily connect to their system via API and retrieve data daily removing manual work so clients can always have up to date data”
