S03E25 – Are smart buildings smart enough?
Please rate this podcast
I have seen a lot of attempts to bring technology into new buildings. Some of them make sense, but a whole lot more are just giant money sucks. That’s not the case with today’s guest. Adam Bartman is one of the most impressive young entrepreneurs I’ve met in a very long time. He started working as a plumber with his Dad when he was still a teenager. Now in his early 30’s Adam is the co-founder of Reed Water.
Reed promises to do something property managers have been dreaming about for decades. Their technology allows for total control and monitoring of every valve and fixture in your building. Trying to track down missing water inside older buildings can be a costly nightmare. Adam explains how the technology works. And he and Tim debate the merits of incorporating more “smart” technology in new buildings.
