One of the key components of industrial IoT (IIoT) growth, digitally connected buildings, helps facility managers have a better control of the operations. The building automation industry is set to grow with the interconnectedness IoT has to offer.
According to a report, the global smart building market is expected to reach USD 33,707.3 million by 2023. In 2017, the global smart building market accounted for USD 7,458.5 million, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29.96 percent during the forecast period of 2018-2023.
The internet of things (IoT) can help in monitoring resource consumption to meet sustainability objectives, streamline operations, increase productivity and security, and also help in centralizing data with digital documentation.
The need for IoT and remote monitoring in smart buildings
Smart building uses a huge number of sensors, be it for detecting movements, moisture, temperature or energy monitoring. And more sensors means more data will be generated. Gartner forecasts that 25 billion connected things will be in use by 2021, producing immense volume of data. It gets harder to analyze, manage, monitor and utilize such vast amount of data that has been collected by the sensors. And this is where IoT helps organizations, by allowing an integrated system to monitor and control the volume of data being generated.
Fortunately enough, with the right partnership in place, HARMAN easily paved its way through this massive amount of data collected.
TeamViewer’s best-in-class solutions enable real-time information of operational status to be displayed on HARMAN’s Smart Building Dashboard along with detailed information on TeamViewer’s extensive monitoring dashboard. It also displays critical information collected from sensors and gateways.
HARMAN laid a strong foundation in building digitally connected infrastructure by collaborating with TeamViewer, a global leader in remote connectivity solutions. The duo teamed up to deliver a joint IoT solution that can manage and monitor large number of IoT devices in a building.
Combining smart building with remote monitoring
HARMAN found its perfect match to build an IoT management solution for monitoring millions of connected devices and sensors during operations.
Prior to the collaboration, HARMAN’s smart building customers assembled information from over 500 different types of sensors through an IoT gateway. The challenge lay in efficiently monitoring the data received. The data collected needs to be effectively analyzed and reused to drive business goals.

Post implementation benefits
The remote offerings of TeamViewer simplified the process of supervision for operation managers and service technicians as they receive instant notification if a problem is detected, for instance power supply or connectivity issues.
The duo brought in a different and powerful perspective to IoT management in the software market. With HARMAN’s Smart Building management system and TeamViewer’s remote control offering, continuous and effective monitoring of the IoT gateway became a reality.
