Conectric uses a mix of patented technologies and tools, the data of the Internet of Things sensors, and business intelligence to reliably deliver reduced building energy consumption to property owners, operators, developers and energy companies.
The App Solutions provides the whole software ecosystem that includes backend and integration of two mobile applications.
The App Solutions team has proven to be highly professional, flexible, scalable and very competent technically. They often deliver results faster than even we are able to keep up with.
Their professional approach is ideal for companies that need a mix between offshore cost structure and while meeting local expectations of professionalism and billing.— Phillip Kopp
The main challenge was to create a system that connects all the hardware and soft.
The whole system consists of hardware, high-loaded back-end, sensors and control boxes.
Our team had to create a thoughtful system that integrates all these elements, provide high performance and excellent security level.
Also we were challenged to create a user-friendly front-end.
The system consists of two main parts: web app and mobile app. The web app includes FrontEnd Web Site, Self-Service Web App, Audit Tool, Installation Tool, Conectric Control Panel and Client Admin Panel. In its turn, the mobile app consists of Audit and Installation tools and the Thermostat Control Tool both for Android and iOS.
The App Solutions provides the whole software ecosystem that includes back-end and integration of two mobile applications. The back-end gathers the data from sensors like weather conditions, local energy providers rates, static analysis, etc. We have also created a highly responsive and adaptive front-end and two mobile apps that allow optimizing engineers work at the site.
Using technology stack
The Audit and Installation tools are built for Android using the technologies like Kotlin, Android SDK, Retrofit, Realm, Picaso, Dagger2, Flow, Gson, RxJava, PHP, Laravel, Google Go, PosgreSQL, Google Big Query and Composer.
All web services are developed with the help of HTML, CSS, JS, BootStrap, Require.js, Jquery, Sass, Gulp.js, Bower, PHP, Laravel, Google Go, PosgreSQL, Google Big Query, and Composer.
Also, it is important to mention the hardware part of the solution that includes sensors and controllers (Embedded C, Go Lang, Texas Instruments) and the infrastructure (Google Cloud Services, MQTT).
This tool helps engineers to conduct an in-depth and thorough review of the building. By using this implement Conectric’s managers initialize and control the whole process.
To make the audit process agile, we have created the Android app with QUIZ. Auditor makes photos and fills out a form with all necessary data in WEB Audit Tool right from his smartphone.
Engineers install guestroom energy management sensors (EMS) and connect them to the Conectric servers. The entire scope of data is collected and transmitted to the mobile app. This functionality associates certain gateways and sensors with a particular device interface on the wall.
All web apps are built separated, but they will be connected as a part of one system. This solution helps to avoid functionality duplicates and gives a possibility to develop and release each part of the system separately.
There is also a public website for sales and marketing needs that display developments, products, features, and media.
The resource overconsumption has become an acute problem of the modern society. More and more companies consider the reduction of energy consumption as a step forward to the global social responsibility.
Energy saving provides not only environmental benefits but also helps to improve output and optimize expenses. That is why Savings as a Service is becoming so popular nowadays.
Conectric has already delivered its energy efficiency to more than 100 of the leading hotels and resorts all over the world. The business model of Savings as a Service allows setting up the system with zero investments while energy reduction can reach over 10% per year.
