Smart thinking

We aim to get to the heart of the challenge of providing smart student accommodation. Pervasive Wireless that connects multiple devices with different languages solves many of the problems of IoT, notably, the need for potentially hundreds of extra boxes, hubs and cables.

A single communication system that marshals and organises devices can be delivered on a much lower cost basis than a traditional Building Management System (BMS). The Glide Smart Block is greater than the sum of its parts and within reach for student accommodation.

Smart Block brings together established but previously disparate technologies that combine to meet operator ambitions and student demands. In short, these are all the things that you need to build one.

  • Pervasive Wireless (Wi-Fi, IoT and Bluetooth)
  • Future-proof Smart Fibre Infrastructure™
  • Smart technology as a managed service
  • Big-Data ready infrastructure
  • Total systems integration
