Recording and analysis of information related to immovable and movable, static and dynamic assets through monitoring systems.
The energy and environmental control has taken up a great importance in the real estate management, given the rules that are even more restrictive and the even higher costs of energy and disposal.
Static information are related to:
Dynamic information are related to the knowledge of punctual consumptions of an installation / technical asset, automatically detected by querying the object itself or any control unit / interface, which was enabled for such function.
If available, the gathered data can be registered into openMAINT in order to be analysed with the previous time series and produce corrective / ameliorative action.
This is not always possible, but the electrical installations provide increasingly modern devices (among them, AMI - Advanced metering infrastructure), which are enabled to communicate with information systems through standard protocols.
In particular, openMAINT is really interested in the open source project OGEMA (Open Gateway Energy Management Alliance). It was developed in Germany releasing the OpenMUC framework and various libraries for the communication with smart meter by using standard protocols.
