Smart Cities Guru Discusses Importance of Smart Water Systems

Net Zero Buildings magazine, a print publication aimed at helping owners and architects with the zero-energy paradigm, interviewed Smart Cities Guru Anil Ahuja about leak detection and utilizing technology for metering and monitoring.

“A smart building utilizes the Internet and communication technology to measure various metrics such as energy, water, and environment, and uses the data to optimize resource use while maximizing quality of life.”

“IoT offers benefits too key to pass up, including intelligent operations and responses, resiliency, security, measurement and verification, biosensors and wireless sensors and big data mining. Smart buildings utilize technology for more efficient water usage such as to recycle wastewater for domestic use – greywater – for irrigation, cleaning and flushing, and to harvest stormwater to reduce discharge and recycle for irrigation and cleaning.”
