Internet-enabled appliance (meetinghouse)
All content on this page is moving to LDS Help Center under the Meetinghouse Technology topic. This page was supposed to be deleted at the end of October 2012.
Internet-enabled appliances (IEAs) allow you to put facility components, that typically require manual control, online so you can access and manage the components remotely. For example, by adding Internet-enabled controllers to various components in the meetinghouse's heating, ventilation, and AC system (HVAC), you can enable remote monitoring and management through a web interface of these systems. This is not a distant technology, but an increasingly common implementation in meetinghouses, as it facilitates security monitoring, temperature regulation, lighting adjustment, and other facility monitoring and control without requiring the facility manager or representative to be physically present in the building. Internet-enabled appliances also extend to irrigation systems, solar panels, physical access controls, and other building equipment with electronic components.
Facilities managers receive guidance on when and where to install Internet-enabled appliances.
