The LLOYD Alam Sutera project is a collaboration between Sindcon (Singapore) IOT Technology Pte Ltd, a provider of low power wide area network (LPWAN) Internet of Things (IoT) metering solutions, and IOT Kreasi Indonesia, an end-to-end IoT solution provider based in Indonesia.
LLOYD Alam Sutera represents a typical dense urban environment with over 20,000 inhabitants per square kilometer. It offers an elevated living concept through 5-storey multi-residential buildings that combine the benefits of landed style living with the convenience of apartment facilities. The focus is on maintaining a strong connection to the ground while challenging the traditional high-rise approach.
About the Project
Sindcon has successfully installed 1,042 smart water meters and smart energy meters in the Lloyd Alam Sutera Apartment. The energy consumption of each unit is monitored online through a web-based monitoring system that integrates with "E-town" for billing purposes.
The installation of smart energy meters and water meters has significantly improved tenant satisfaction, exceeding a 50% increase. Tenants now have the power to monitor their utility usage on a daily basis, eliminating any surprises when it comes to their bills. The introduction of LoRaWAN smart energy meters has also reduced labour costs and human error associated with manual metering.
The solutions implemented in the Lloyd Alam Sutera Apartment:
•Installation of Prepaid Smart Meter: The project involved installing smart water meters
and smart energy meters in each unit of the apartment complex.
•Accurate and real-time energy consumption data: Smart meters provide accurate and real-time
data on energy usage, allowing consumers to monitor and understand their energy consumption
patterns. This information helps users identify areas of high energy usage, enabling them to make
more informed decisions about energy efficiency and conservation.
•Stability of devices:The implemented solutions prioritize the stability of the devices used, ensuring that
the smart meters and monitoring systems operate consistently and reliably.
•LoRaWAN server for database handling: A LoRaWAN server is utilized to handle the database,
ensuring secure storage and management of the collected data.
• Remote control functionality: The system incorporates remote control functionality, which allows authorized
personnel to remotely access and manage the IoT devices and systems. This feature is implemented
with appropriate security measures, such as secure authentication and encrypted communication
channels, to prevent unauthorized access and ensure the integrity of remote-control operations.
• Low power and low peak current requirements: The system is designed to operate with low power
consumption and low peak current requirements. This design approach not only ensures energy
efficiency but also minimizes the risk of power surges or overloads that could compromise the
system's stability and security.
The LoRaWAN system provides support for high density environments, allowing for future expansion and addition of other applications. The robustness of LoRaWAN technology has resulted in over 90% data success rate, ensuring reliable and efficient data transmission.
We employed IoT technology to enhance the environmental sustainability of Llyod Alam Sutera Apartments. Our primary objective was to improve the overall environmental impact of the apartments, with a focus on promoting sustainability, resource efficiency, and providing a better living experience for all tenants.
