IoT Backbone

Digitize residental buildings
with our IoT Infrastructure!

METR’s IoT infrastructure works like a digital backbone, which interconnects building management systems of different producers throughout the building. Both new and existing devices, such as meters and sensors, can be seamlessly integrated into a centralised system. The data can then be read out remotely and effortlessly. Key component of the IoT infrastructure is METR’s innovative multifunctional gateway!

Data sovereignty

The data belongs to you and you decide how it will be used. METR is in charge of its protection and security.


Co-develop with us, bespoke building management systems benefitting both property managers and tenants alike!

“Various IoT applications will be introduced into the properties of housing companies, or are already being introduced today: monitoring of energy generation systems, measuring devices, elevator monitoring, wirelessly maintained or networked smoke media, and various types of sensors. To avoid installing a separate communication system for each application, it makes sense to use a universal communication structure such as METR. The development partnership with METR enables us to incorporate our own application requirements into the development process and make them available to other housing companies.”
