Listed Internet of Things solutions provider Quantify Technology (ASX:QFY) has entered a heads of agreement to partner with Western Australia’s Curtin University of Technology to install Quantify products in a living lab in Fremantle.

Quantify says it has developed adaptable products which can transform traditionally wired houses into smart homes using a flexible wall switch connected to the Wi-Fi network. The addition of Quantify’s technology to the living lab trial is designed to enable building automation and energy consumption monitoring within the building.

The space will be an interactive research, prototyping and test facility and will be used for people to collaborate and engage directly with the building, to explore performance and data, while serving as a case study for a PhD fellowship with Quantify Technology.

Quantify Technology chief executive Brett Savill said that the “venture will explore how Quantify’s Internet of Things technology can add value by reducing the energy used by the home, saving emissions and energy".

Known as the Legacy Living Lab (L3), the building will have the ability to undergo transformations throughout its lifetime without the need for demolition, catering for further research. Quantify will work alongside other WA organisations who employ sustainable construction techniques to increase building efficiency and reduce material consumption and waste.

Savill said the partnerships would only add potential to the future of Quantify. "Aside from Curtin, we are looking forward to collaborating with Fleetwood Australia and LandCorp in the construction of the living lab, who both compliment what Quantify is working towards," he added.

The PhD project will be completed through the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute, which acknowledges increasing sustainability is a complex matter involving policy, theory and practice, which requires understanding about how we can work collaboratively for a better world.

CUSP director, professor Greg Morrison, said the PhD project would address the need for home automation technology.

“There is a gap in understanding the benefits that can be gained by the integration of home automation and the energy and subsequent cost saving that can be attributed to the adoption of automation,” Morrison said  "It would also realise the benefits Quantify Technology has to offer to the market.”

The living lab is set to be commissioned on 18 April.
