The client was experiencing concrete damage in stairwells caused by the dryer exhaust system blowing acidic moisture into them. Because of this, Cherishome decided they needed to redirect exhaust from the underground laundry rooms to the main floor. When they partnered with us here at Cence they explained this, as well as that they needed to automatically control exhaust fan speeds based on the number of dryers being used at the same time.
Cence decided that the best method to automatically detect if dryers are being overused would be to use thermistors to measure the exhaust’s air temperature, and send that information to the smart node product, as well as the Cence App (includes digital twin software). These are two of the most common products that we implement for clients because of their powerful data collection and control software.
The combination of these technologies, provides Cherishome with these benefits:
By integrating these devices with air temperature sensors, a wireless mesh network, and our digital twin software, we enabled Cherishome to monitor, control and automate their dryers and exhaust fans based on real-time usage and safety protocols. This allows Cherishome to optimize energy consumption, as well as occupant safety.
A safer environment for occupants
A safer laundry room, with dryers optimized for performance and efficiency.
Ability to collect data on systems and monitor energy consumption
Wireless sensors, wireless mesh network, and data collection and analytics software installed to enable Cherishome to monitor energy consumption and savings.
Intuitive control with digital twin software
The cloud app is optimized for use with BACnet, and is also an intuitive app with a user friendly interface. The Cence App includes digital twin software that produces a digital floorplan or layout of a physical space or system. This way, the dryers and exhaust fans, can easily be controlled in real-time.
The automations implemented with the Cence system save Cherishome on energy, and operating costs.
All in all, since the implementation of our system, Cherishome has been able to save energy costs, reduce emissions, improve occupant safety, and improve the performance of their dryers.
