BNP Paribas Real Estate is making buildings smarter

  • 08.02.2016

Drawing on its recent participation at CES 2016, BNP Paribas Real Estate is innovating in the area of property development thanks to the Internet of Things. It’s developing its own vision of the “smart building”.

The “smart building” concept is about integrating active and passive energy management solutions that are designed to both optimise consumption and enhance the comfort and safety of users, all while complying with existing regulations.

As part of the global digital revolution, BNP Paribas Real Estate is contributing, through smart buildings, to the construction of smart cities. More specifically, it’s offering a range of smart, connected services such as the ‘Open Door’ lock, the ‘Sharebox’ shared and connected letterbox, the ‘Switch’ smart light switch and the ‘Light Inn’ lighting interface.

For BNP Paribas Real Estate, it’s all about putting technology to work to enhance people’s well-being in buildings and in cities. It’s a major challenge, as by 2050 the world population is expected to reach nearly 10 billion people, 7.5 billion of whom will live in urban centres.
