Sansiri plans to develop smart condominiums which will feature Internet of Things (IoT) in all condominium units when construction is finished in 2019.

The plan is divided into three levels, from fundamental systems control to a full-scale smart building, according to a press release issued by the company on Friday. 

Sansiri will offer residents three concepts including iConvenience, iSafe and iGreen. The Line Asoke-Ratchada, a joint-venture between Sansiri and BTS Group, is the first smart condominium, as the company looks to The Edge, the world's most intelligent building in the Netherlands, as a role model to develop more smart projects by 2020.

Dr.Tawicha Trakulyingyong, chief technology officer of Sansiri, said: "Sansiri sees the importance of Smart Building technology and it is how we want to make building management more effective by incorporating Internet of Things or IoT in the building and connecting it with software and services from common space to living space."

He said the technology will improve the comfort and safety for residents while making building management better and more effective. 

All electrical systems and equipment, including firefighting equipment, electric generator, central electric system, elevator, water pump, drain system and swimming pool, will be centralised and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) are monitored and controlled to reduce excess power use.
