The Ubiant solution is based on Artificial Intelligence dedicated to virtualizing buildings. It allows users to generate a whole host of services used for managing comfort and energy by adding connected objects to a building. The building learns and self-adjusts to its occupants and to operator constraints.
Ubiant solution is structured around an ecosystem of interoperable building blocks
Human-machine interfaces (HMI)
The Ubiant application lets the user connect to the Ubiant cloud, via their e-mail address (which serves as their personal ID), and a personal password. It provides access to the user’s 3D digital home, and to all the functions related to it.
The Ubiant platform is hosted in the cloud and accessible using the Ubiant application via smartphone, PC or tablet. Ubiant cloud services are hosted in data centers located in France. For each building, the user and/or operator benefits from a personal, secure data container. For each building, the guaranteed service level, number of zones (or rooms), number of objects (connected devices) and number of users depends on the chosen subscription plan.
The user must have Internet access and a service provider box to connect the Ubiant Gateway with objects in third-party clouds. In some cases, the Internet connection may be native to the building.
The Ubiant radio network comprises a Ubiant Gateway with the radio communication modules required by the connected objects (Quickmove and the IoT). It is used to create a secure, low-consumption communication network with a low radio frequency emission.
Third-party clouds and IoT objects
The user can add a whole host of services by adding connected objects in the Quickmove repository, or connected objects from the IoT with an open API. As soon as an object is added, its associated possible services are automatically added, without having to program or restart the Ubiant application.
Ubiant is convinced that the building universe will go down the same path as the IT universe, i.e. one leading to dematerialized services via the cloud, and service cross-functionality.
A home’s real estate value will no longer merely depend on the building’s physical envelope, but also on the quality of the dematerialized services available for the occupant or operator.
These buildings will be “augmented” in the cloud, which benefits from vastly superior storage and computing capacities. They will become the platform for value-creating services, eventually even negotiating for themselves the sale or procurement of the energy which they produce or consume. In future, buildings will be a source of revenue in their own right.
