Smart Building: remote maintenance and energy optimization with IoT Gateway

Smart Building: remote maintenance and energy optimization with IoT Gateway

With the IoT Gateway, DH electronics provides the perfect hardware basis for plug-and-play solutions for IoT applications from Juconn.


Who is our interview partner?
Julian Dawo is a software expert and passionate founder from Munich. He is both CTO of Minnt GmbH, which develops high-quality business apps, and CEO of its subsidiary Juconn GmbH, which specializes in software solutions for IoT applications.

Who is our customer?
uconn GmbH develops industry-independent plug-and-play solutions for IoT applications and supports companies in the implementation of digitization projects.  In doing so, Julian's team relies on the specially developed Juconn platform, which serves as the basis for a wide variety of end applications and. Solutions in the field of energy monitoring, which are already proving their worth in the district heating sector and in optimizing heating costs in the housing industry, deserve special mention.

What is the application?
Juconn is using DH electronics' IoT gateways in a smart building application. Specifically, it involves the central control and management of infrared heaters in vacation homes from a distance. The aim is to reduce energy consumption and, for example, only heat when a vacation home is actually booked.

What was the initial situation?
The contact between DH electronics and Juconn came about through a recommendation from an existing customer. Product Manager Stefan Gonzo and Juconn founder Julian Dawo had a casual exchange at the beginning before a concrete approach for a cooperation arose for the first time with the vacation home project.

What are the distinguishing features of the cooperation?
The cooperation between DH electronics and Juconn is very cooperative. Although Juconn focuses primarily on software for IoT applications, customers are always asking for a recommendation for suitable hardware. This is where the IoT Gateway from DH electronics comes into play, which was developed by DH electronics specifically for applications in the area of "Controls and Connectivity". Devices can be easily networked with each other and data from the sensor level can be processed in the cloud or on the edge. For example, several temperature sensors are installed in the vacation homes and transmit temperature values to the IoT gateway via Bluetooth. From there, the data is then sent to a cloud, evaluated and displayed on a dashboard in the Juconn web app. Temperature values can thus not only be displayed remotely, but also adjusted - for example, when guests arrive. Thanks to the smart building solution, the energy efficiency of the buildings is optimized and at the same time the comfort is increased for the vacation park operators thanks to the intelligent control.

What does Juconn particularly appreciate about DH electronics?

  • Close collaboration with the product manager for the DHCON product family Stefan
  • Flexible expandability of the IoT gateway with interfaces through extensions
  • IoT gateway with integrated mobile radio and MODBUS interface enables choice between mobile radio and existing network, which saves costs
  • Scalable performance of the IoT Gateway through exchangeable System on Module
  • Similar modular system on hardware and software side
  • "Engineered and Made in Germany" with guaranteed availability of 10+ years

We are pleased to support Juconn with our IoT Gateway to make buildings smarter in the future. Building automation can increase energy efficiency, security and comfort. All this is confirmed by the application of the gateway in the vacation homes.
