Team update

I’m so proud of this inspiring dream team! Rado and Smitha are working together bringing up new ideas and improving earlier tested ones.
Thank you Digita for the support on LoRa. LOP Kiinteistöt – thank you also for this awesome office space!
In the background you can see our reporting portal presenting data from the monitored buildings, where the easily deployable sensor solution is helping our customers realize the possibilities.
Last but not least, here is a picture from today’s SCRUM meeting, where we are working on a digitalization project for our client.

EV charging tests continue

It feels great to be able to combine our interest for cars with our project!
This time we had the opportunity to have the Volvo XC40 twin engine to test drive and charge. We have used the newly integrated charger that will ensure that the car’s battery is charged during none peak hours.

Work and fun combined

As part of the Horizon2020 project, where we also work on the EV charging solution, we got the opportunity to test drive the new ID.3 1ST from Volkswagen. ID.3 runs smoothly through the city, and the range is an impressive 425 km (wltp), which is enough even for getting to more long distance places, before it is time to re-charge.
In order to save money we will re-charge the battery, using the charging optimization solution provided by Salusfin. Here we are testing the charger by go-e. Thanks for letting us take this opportunity to test drive the new EV from Volkswagen in the beautiful warm autumn weather!

EV charger tests

We have tested our E-vehicle smart charger pilot with a BMW electric car i3 and a BMW 3-series hybrid at the Merihaka housing area in Helsinki. The results turned out quite positive! Looking forward to more tests to come.

Service delivery to Metropolia

Salusfin is proud of another succesful achievement as a smart service provider.
Salusfin delivered a smart IoT-based ventilation machine control to the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki. The data used for ventilation control derives from electricity spot price and sensor values (temperature, humidity and CO2). The service delivery is part of Salusfin Buildings-made-Smarter concept.

Merihaka covered by YLE News

YLE News did a detailed coverage on mySMARTLife project in Merihaka, Helsinki.
Salusfin solution with smart thermostats was installed to enable dynamic heating controls, energy savings and added living comfort. Residents are able to adjust temperatures according to their daily or weekly schedules, e. g. drop temperature during night time or vacation. The installations enable the local utility company Helen, also partner of mySMARTLife project, to start the heat demand response pilot in Merihaka.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 731297.
