SA&M Client InteliGlas Featured in LA Business Journal “InteliGlas Uses AI Program to Save Energy, Cut Costs.”
“There are a lot of companies out there that put sensors in the building and grab data … which is half the solution,” Martin said. “The rest of the solution is our artificial intelligence, which we named Ripley, and Ripley takes immediate action.”
Ripley, for example, can scan through 40 years of weather data and adjust air conditioning in buildings based on weather patterns.
If a day is expected to be extremely hot, Ripley might start cooling the building at night instead of letting it get too warm, which would force the AC to work overtime in the morning. This approach can help users save on energy costs.
InteliGlas Corporation, represented by SA&M Partner Kevin DeBré, is an American proptech company based in Pasadena, California. InteliGlas was launched in 2018 to develop a commercial real estate autopilot for office buildings. This self-learning IoT platform integrates with virtually any preexisting building management system software.
RipleyAI – InteliGlas, a hive-mind multi-building learning system – combines the knowledge gained from the entire install base applying it to the benefit of all of the InteliGlas customer properties. They have achieved up to 65% energy savings, which is a significant achievement in the quest to lower overhead, and also because, according to the US Department of Energy, office buildings consume 73% of the US electrical energy output and produce a resulting 40% of the nation’s carbon footprint.
