Hero Group’s Zenatix, the Internet of Things (IoT) focused enterprise, has announced its expansion into the UAE and Middle East, offering organisations a robust cloud-based energy and asset management solution.
As a great number of small and mid-sized infrastructures lack automation, and face challenges with energy inefficiency and equipment maintenance, Zenatix’s IoT powered solution offers businesses automated controls and real-time visibility into their operations.
With that, Zenatix’s solution is helping commercial buildings across sectors, such as hospitality, restaurants, retail, supermarkets, and warehouses, to reduce their energy consumption, alerting them of any anomalies, improving operational compliance and facilitating remote asset management.
“While the large buildings market is served by traditional building management systems, automation in small and mid-sized buildings is a global gap. Zenatix’ IoT powered solution is affordable, wireless, scalable and enables easy deployment by partners and system integrators. Customers get a centralised visibility into their distributed operations and are able to save 10-20 per cent energy while reducing breakdowns through Zenatix’ AI powered predictive maintenance features,” said Rahul Bhalla, CEO and co-founder of Zenatix.
The Middle East building automation system market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4 per cent during 2020-2026 and gain momentum with the surge in construction activities and growing focus on energy efficiency. This would require adoption of sustainable measures by diverse stakeholders to enable a future that is conducive to the environment supported by the Dubai government.
With that, Zenatix enters the geography at an ideal time with key initiatives announced by the Dubai government and corporations around climate conservation and sustainability; the UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) scheduled in Dubai in 2023 and Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050.
“Zenatix has made significant investments in developing OpenThread based wireless mesh technology for both sensing and actuation, which allows plug and play deployments in existing infrastructures and provides ROI in less than 18 months. We are extremely happy to launch this solution in the UAE and the Middle East where there is increased focus on energy management and sustainability, driven both by the government and corporations,” added Bhalla.
Zenatix’s solutions are currently deployed at more than 2,500 sites with 50k+ connected assets generating 200M+ data points daily. Benefits to customers include up to 20 per cent cost efficiency through energy savings and manpower savings, up to 25 per cent improvement in comfort and food safety compliance, and 30 per cent reduction in asset breakdowns.
