Fujitsu General New Zealand has strengthened and diversified its product range with its newest offering, making a significant advancement in the relationship between technology and indoor comfort. The anywAiR iO solution is an advanced control system tailored for the commercial and industrial building sectors that optimise HVAC operating periods and maintenance cycles, reducing costs and improving efficiencies.

Developed in partnership with Nube iO, anywAiR iO is a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi and Internet of Things (IoT) offering that represents the next wave of smart building technologies, merging the best of Fujitsu General’s heat pump / air conditioning prowess with Nube iO's pioneering innovations.

Kyle Rafter, head of product ANZ, Fujitsu General, said, “As we witness the increased demand for smart building technologies, we are proud to present anywAiR iO. This solution is our commitment to enhancing building automation and energy efficiency, giving building operators the tools they need to create more sustainable, comfortable environments.”

At the core of anywAiR iO is the Rubix Compute, a multilingual IoT gateway. This hub aggregates data and seamlessly connects to a diverse range of sensors, both wireless and wired. Additionally, the system integrates Rubix iO modules, Micro Edge, and Droplet Sensors, ensuring continuous data acquisition and the empowerment of smart, data-driven decisions.

Diving deeper, anywAiR iO showcases proficiency in HVAC control and optimisation, adeptly handling everything from VRF systems, rooftop package units, and split systems to exhaust fans, valves, and car park exhausts. Its state-of-the-art sensors not only detect anomalies but actively contribute to slashing energy consumption, proactively sending essential notifications to pre-empt potential inefficiencies or disruptions.

The potential of the anywAiR iO system in the realm of IoT Space Utilisation cannot be understated. Leveraging non-intrusive monitoring methods, the solution can capture occupancy trends, door state alterations, and even assess levels in bins and water reservoirs. Armed with such insights, facility managers can now streamline maintenance cycles and strategise optimal operating periods.

Additionally, the anywAiR iO dashboard provides a bird’s-eye view of the entire building management system. Without the need for any software installation or updates, users can access the dashboard from any browser, at any time, and from anywhere.

anywAiR iO features include:

  • IoT and Wi-Fi connectivity delivering advanced automation and real-time building control from any device.
  • Rubix Compute Gateway that manages, aggregates, and delivers diverse building data efficiently.
  • Rubix iO Modules offering cost-effective, wireless communication for diverse building applications.
  • Micro Edge Sensor using LoRa® technology for comprehensive data capture across building equipment.
  • Utility monitoring offering real-time insights on utilities consumption.
  • Indoor air quality monitoring connects to various sensors, ensuring optimal working conditions and which can assist with Green Star or Nabers requirements.
  • Low-cost installation with its LoRa-enabled monitors, the setup is efficient, reducing risks and disruptions.
  • Scalability to support easy expansion, empowering the integration of new sensors as the building’s needs evolve.

Kyle Rafter said, “Embracing the future means integrating intelligence into every brick and beam. With anywAiR iO, we’re not just building structures; we’re crafting intelligent ecosystems that adapt, learn, and grow with our ever-evolving world.”
