The Syncromesh Smart Canopy

Our powerful smart canopy enables building owners to quickly and simply add a range of building management solutions that improve the comfort of its occupancy, lowering a building’s carbon footprint and reducing energy costs.

Cognian’s Syncromesh is a wireless canopy that makes any building a smart building. Using the canopy, building owners can quickly and simply add a range of building management solutions to lower a building’s carbon footprint and reduce energy costs, regardless of the building’s size, location or age.

The Smart Canopy brings lighting control, location-based services, HVAC control and asset tracking together wirelessly, with open standard interfaces and advanced services to enable the smart building retrofit market.

The Smart Canopy delivers an energy-efficient upgrade at a fraction of the cost of wired smart building alternatives. It works with a range of hardware vendors and other technologies to improve the wellness and comfort of building occupants, lower a building’s carbon footprint, reduce energy consumption and contribute to a more productive environment for tenants.

With its open platform, Syncromesh works with a number of manufacturers then connects all of the various control systems together. This means that lighting controls from one manufacturer can talk to HVAC controls of a different manufacturer. 

Syncromesh 'Smart Canopy as a Service'

The Syncromesh Smart Canopy as a Service (SCaaS) does away with the old approach of siloed systems and fixed costs. It creates one standard and open experience, allowing sensors, beacons, lighting, temperature control and a myriad of other features across a huge range of vendors to be plugged into the Syncromesh wireless canopy and smart building management platform.  This is delivered on a ‘pay per use’ model.

With the Syncromesh SCaaS, an ever-growing smorgasbord of smart building features can be plugged in over time and all managed from one cloud-based subscription dashboard. 

The canopy is frictionless and the opportunities it presents grow as the needs of building owners, tenants and occupants grow. Think of it as smart building blocks cleverly connected by service-based software management.

Syncromesh Smart Canopy as a Service makes today’s buildings ready for tomorrow’s unexpected needs – where you pay for what you use and it is continually kept up to date to reduce cost and complexity of support.
