Spot On Networks, LLC (“SON”) today announced an agreement with Rudin Management Company, Inc. (“Rudin”) in the redevelopment of 130 West 12th Street, New York, New York.
SON will provide the property’s amenity areas and the 42 residential apartment homes with high speed wireless internet access and energy management and building automation functionality.
Monitoring and control of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting is accomplished using Wi-Fi enabled devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops in conjunction with wireless internet enabled energy control and monitoring devices. Home scenarios including preset climate and lighting parameters can be modified by the resident regardless of where they are at any time.
This energy management and building automation capability provides the resident with the ability to reduce energy costs by recognizing excessive usage, and promoting the economical use of energy through control features and information that enables intelligent decision making.
“Providing energy monitoring and control functions in our buildings helps to engage the condominium owner, reduce carbon footprint, honor our corporate responsibility to the city in which we live, and do well by doing good,” according to John J. Gilbert, III, Rudin’s Chief Operating Officer. He went on to add: “These advanced technology systems and services that benefit condominium owners, including energy management and wireless services, will eventually be like the elevators required in a high rise building.”

He went on to say, “We look forward to a successful partnership and the future 'Smart Building' redevelopment of other Rudin properties.
