No. All data gathered is anonymous.
The technologies cannot detect sound, record images and/or be used to detect identity.
On a building-by-building basis, cumulative data measuring trends of motion, light, temperature, and power-usage will provide the University with the ability to adapt lighting conditions, improve space utilisation, schedule heating and cooling via a central dashboard, all whilst preserving individual anonymity.
Live data measuring and monitoring where and how energy (such as gas, electricity and renewables) is used will also be made available via a central dashboard, enabling the University to make close-to-real-time decisions on energy optimisation.
The live energy data will be captured via a range of building technologies: Enlighted IOT Technology will capture power consumption data for each light fitting, while Building Management Systems (BMS) will capture live data from a combination of energy meters. Key plant such as Air Handling Units [AHUs] will capture live data including fan speed and output temperatures.
All this data is not at an individual level, but is aggregated. It is not possible to tell what any one person is consuming and no personal data will be gathered as part of this initiative. The level of aggregation depends on the metering in each building (in some buildings we have just one meter, in other buildings we may have one on every floor).
Closely measuring and monitoring the above data sets will help incrementally drive down carbon use on the campus, contributing to a net zero carbon campus, while also keeping community members safe and comfortable.
