BuildingLink.com, the leading web-based property operations software for luxury residential buildings, announces the beta release of Aware-FC™, its smart-sensor solution for private fitness centers located in residential buildings. Aware-FC™ is the first offering in the company’s “Aware” line of IoT sensor-related solutions planned for BuildingLink subscribers.
The company is currently testing their “Aware” Fitness Center sensors in The Solaire, a 300-unit luxury apartment building in downtown Manhattan, built and managed by the Albanese Organization, where BuildingLink’s custom-built network of sensors is monitoring the exercise facility’s equipment usage and ambient temperature.
“Our Solaire residents have very active lifestyles, and love being able to check the real-time availability of treadmills, stair masters, and elliptical machines via a convenient dashboard on their home computers or smartphones,” says Michael Gubbins, Senior Vice President of Property Management at the Albanese Organization. “More importantly, BuildingLink’s ‘Aware’ Fitness Center solution provides our management team with their own analytics dashboard in BuildingLink, enabling us to intelligently remove underutilized machines, add others most in-demand by residents, adjust opening and closing times or staff levels, and determine which machines need repairs.”
The Fitness Center solution is the first rollout in BuildingLink’s planned “Aware” line, the goal of which is to provide BuildingLink manager subscribers with actionable data that helps improve their operations. The sensor solutions made available via BuildingLink’s “Aware” line will put sensor-based analytics at their fingertips, helping them to make better operational decisions in the future in areas such as laundry rooms, elevators, and leaks.
“We have a fantastic lineup planned for our future sensor solutions,” says Jerry Kestenbaum, BuildingLink.com CEO. “We’re focusing on problem areas where actionable information has traditionally been difficult to acquire, such as noise complaint resolutions and elevator usage anomalies. We’re dreaming big for our clients and have many ideas for the future!”
