W-City launches the first Wattabit platform for smart cities management
In the last months, the team of developers of our partner WATTABIT, have been optimizing this brand new tool. W-City stands as a remote central system for lighting management at frame and point to point level. Thus, it is established as an open platform that uses the standards to connect with different Internet of Things (IoT) devices and third systems.
Smart City Expo World Congress 2019
The incorporation of W-City to our energy management service provides important benefits to our clients such as simplification of decision making. All of this, thanks to the centralization of data or the increase of savings that we obtain both in energy and in costs due to the optimization of maintenance.
On the 19th, 20th and 21st of November, our partners at WATTABIT will be hosting one of the largest events providing a unique meeting point for the entire smart city ecosystem, the Smart City Expo World Congress.
