November 9, 2022 – uHoo, a climate-tech company well known for developing smart and advanced indoor environmental monitoring and risk management technologies is thrilled to announce that it becomes one of the first to join WiredScore’s list of Accredited Solutions providers.
WiredScore, the leading international organization that delivers a set of global standards in digital connectivity and smart technology within the built environment, has seen the real estate industry lacking clarity on how to effectively implement technological solutions and create smart buildings. To acknowledge this, WiredScore has launched its Accredited Solutions program, which empowers tech providers in helping their clients, developers, and landlords implement, discover the value, and choose the right technological solutions for their buildings.
“We are really excited to be launching our Accredited Solutions offering to the market, to build a bridge between real estate and technology, enabling landlords and the technology solutions that serves them to connect seamlessly.”
“Since launching SmartScore – our smart building certification – in 2021, we’ve noticed that ‘smart’ continues to be an opaque subject for the real estate industry. Many continue to seek guidance on how to implement smart buildings, what solution providers to work with, and even what ‘smart’ itself means. We are confident that our Accredited Solutions offering will help to demystify how to successfully deliver a smart building.” Arie Barendrecht, the founder and CEO of WiredScore.
The accreditation is designed for businesses aiming to position their solution with SmartScore certification standards. By using WiredScore’s Accredited Solutions, such as uHoo, clients can not only choose the most suitable solution for their project, they can also achieve the two main SmartScore criteria easily:
Building functionality which focuses on how a built environment addresses issues and challenges experienced by the occupants. This includes safety, wellbeing, sustainability, and productivity. The uHoo Aura continuously tracks the presence of various factors affecting the air including carbon dioxide, temperature, humidity, particulate matter, VOCs, and formaldehyde, among others. The uHoo Aura also includes the patented uHoo Virus Index, which uses a 10-point scoring system to measure an environment’s risk of viruses surviving and becoming more transmissible.
By having accurate indoor air quality data, businesses and building owners are able to identify the sources of air pollution within their facilities, create strategies to control it, and protect the health and boost the productivity of the people that are using them.
Technological foundation evaluates the building’s technology, the processes, and procedures that are used to future-proof the built environment. Technological foundation emphasizes factors such as building systems, data sharing, and tenant digital connectivity.
uHoo addresses the above by providing all the real-time data, historical trends, analytics, insights and alerts on the uHoo dashboard which is accessible via a computer and a mobile app, anytime and anywhere. It also has a display feature where building managers can share their facility’s indoor environmental quality conditions via large screen displays installed within the building. This provides occupants, employees, and visitors with confidence knowing that the building that they are using prioritizes their health and safety.
With uHoo becoming one of WiredScore’s Accredited Solutions providers, you can make your buildings smart and be SmartScore-certified.
On top of the SmartScore certification, uHoo also helps properties obtain green and healthy building certifications such as LEED, WELL, RESET and Fitwel, among others. Having these certifications can help boost an asset’s value, desirability, credibility, and ESG performance.
