What is Energy Monitoring? That's the question that needs to be answered first. One of the biggest developments our country has made in smart networks is the widespread awareness about Energy Monitoring… Thanks to this awareness, individuals and companies can control their energy consumption and, as a result of long-term monitoring, they will be thingesting their investments. This cycle will prevent unnecessary energy costs but also allow our carbon emissions to be reduced.
What is Energy Monitoring? What Does It Host?
In the simplest sense, energy monitoring is the job of periodically or instantaneously measured and processed into the database of the consumption of resources such as electricity, water, natural gas, generators and oil, which constitute the expense items of companies or individuals, and to show and report on an interface.
This process takes place by moving the information provided by the devices that can transfer data out to the secure internet environment with a communication device and allows users to access it with their passwords.
There are several modems on the market that are used for this job.
They can be generally classified according to their structure and communication types.
The Most Common Energy Communication Modems,
1- Transparent Modem
Sends information as it is triggered by the central computer (server).
2- Smart Modem
The modem collects, stores, and ies data to the central computer (server).
IoT Communication Modems by Communication Type,
1- Ethernet Modem
This structure also applies to smart and transparent modems. As the name suggests, it connects to the customer's own local network using ethernet for data transfer. Operating costs are relatively low, causing various security vulnerabilityes as well as the hassil of creating a Server structure.
2- GSM Modem
This structure also applies to smart and transparent modems. As the name suggests, it allows data transfer using GSM/GPRS/3G for data transfer. In this structure, the customer does not need to create their own Server structure in particular. Since the quality and continuity of communication depends entirely on the GSM provider, the security and operating cost are relatively advantageous.
What to follow
When it comes to energy monitoring, I recommend monitoring all kinds of expense sources in order to make your investments and projects successful, even though electricity comes to mind first.
1- Linye Based Follow-up Should Be Done
- Air Curtains
- Revolving Doors
- Elevators and escalators
- Detailable depending on your business
3- Main Feed
Water, water, water, water,
1- Main Feed
3- Hot Water Meters if central water heating is used
4- WC, Sinks, such as our attention to escape but the most water waste places should be determined and precautions should be taken
1- Main feed
2- Calorimeters per apartment
Footnote: In the "energy efficiency law" published in the Official Gazette no. 26510 dated 02.05.2007, "Buildings with central heating system use systems that enable the sharing of central or local heat or temperature control devices and heating costs depending on the amount of heat usage. Projects prepared contrary to this will not be approved by the relevant authorities."and "Existing buildings with central heating or sanitary hot water systems of the provisions of this Regulation, the work and procedures that must be carried out in accordance with the materials applicable to buildings that have not yet been allowed to use the building and buildings requiring a change of project and mechanical installation change shall be carried out by the building owner or manager, the building board, the energy manager and the operator within five years as of 2/5/2007 in accordance with article 6 of article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Act no. 5627."
As of 02.05.2012, which has 5 years of the period in accordance with its provisions, penalties will be imposed on buildings that do not use a "heat sharing system". In order not to be subjected to these penalties, building managers should meet with authorized companies and install this system in their buildings.
Monitoring these points on the roadmap of smart networks is only a successful start and more points and components need to be included.
