BBC Report highlights how North’s Smart Technology is set to improve the health and wellbeing of Glasgow residents
A BBC Scotland report has highlighted how an innovative Smart Housing pilot, being rolled out by two Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) - West of Scotland Housing Association and Southside Housing Association, is set to improve the health and wellbeing of residents.
Delivered by North, the pilot will see homes across the central belt installed with state-of-the-art sensors that will monitor the temperature and humidity levels in properties.
The smart Tempus sensors will share real-time data through North’s IoT Scotland network, with Glasgow City Council and the RSLs who will record and analyse moisture readings every 30 minutes. This will enable the local authority and housing associations to proactively intervene and minimise issues including damp and mould, which can cause a host of health issues over time.
The innovative IoT Pilot will demonstrate how the use of sensor-driven digital solutions can improve housing services and raise awareness of the technologies available in this sector and the savings they can make.
As part of the scheme, the RSLs undertook a comprehensive review of the selected homes in partnership with North to identify any existing issues with the properties. Residents have also been provided with information packs detailing the benefits and guidance on the installation of the sensors which are now up and running.
