Digging Deep: Glued Solutions

Throughout this Digging Deep series we’ve taken an in-depth look at the Smarter Building Technologies Alliance, and its internal factories Direct Discount Lighting and Integrated Advanced Controls. Last up in this initial series is SBT factory Glued Solutions (GSI). How Does Serving Connected Lighting Controls Relate to Glued Solutions? Serving the advanced networked controls industry since 2006, Glued Solutions, in a nutshell, is the industry’s leading provider of wireless building control system provisioning, configuration, maintenance, and application development services. Sounds great, right? Ok…Ok…I know you’re probably asking what is system provisioning anyway? And why, in fact, should you care? That’s fair. In order to answer that we’ll jump into what Glued Solutions “does” and fully define each of these services in more depth a bit later in this post. For now, let’s nail down who GSI is.

Digging Deep: Glued Solutions

Who Is Glued Solutions? 

The best way to characterize GSI is through its unparalleled wireless networking and advanced controls expertise. Glued Solutions is the authority on how to most efficiently design, install, and program a wireless smart building system. So, when you think GSI, think wireless networking experts. Of course, there’s a lot more behind those words, but suffice to say this is GSI in a nutshell.

Glued Solutions = Wireless Networking Experts

Alright, on to what it is that Glued Solutions does and why its products and services will make the deployment of a wireless smart building system easier.

Wireless Networked Control System Provisioning and Commissioning

Going Far Beyond System Commissioning

Yes, it’s true. System provisioning and commissioning are both critical aspects of a successful wireless control system deployment, but they are not the be-all and end-all of a peak performing system. There are countless attributes of a top performing system and one of those things is ongoing system maintenance and technical support.

Ongoing Technical System Support

Once a project is finalized, QA’d, and closed out, that’s only half the story. Long-term system monitoring, tweaking, and maintenance are all part of ensuring the original design intent of the wireless networked control system is achieved. We’ll be jumping into plenty of in-depth conversations on system support, maintenance, and optimization in future posts so make sure to keep an eye out for them – there will be some solid, actionable, information in those posts.

Custom Application Development

What else does Glued Solutions “do”? Well, we could of course list off a laundry list of products and services that would fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool, but that would get pretty boring, pretty quickly. GSI’s custom application development service is one item I would like to address and share with you, though.


Well, that’s pretty straightforward; because in the world of the Internet of Things (IoT), connected devices, and billions of Internet-enabled widgets, what you do with your information is far more powerful than what it actually is.

While there are plenty of use cases for custom application development – which a handful are quite honestly still being dreamed up as I write this and you read it – some of the Glued Solutions innovative application developments include:

  • Interactive multi-facility energy consumption vs. predicted savings analysis
  • Icy condition alarm notification to alert employees of slippery sidewalks
  • Monthly space utilization report including occupancy heat mapping
  • Machinery water temperature monitoring application
  • And much more

I think the most exciting thing about Glued Solutions custom application development services is the fact that it’s virtually limitless. If it can be dreamt up, GSI technicians can likely build it.

Propelling Smarter Building Technology Solutions

As you’ve learned in our previous posts in this Digging Deep series, each Smarter Building Technologies Alliance factory plays a critical role in building upon and rounding out our innovative LED lighting and advanced controls solutions – Glued Solutions is a prime illustration of this.

Now that you’ve taken a deeper look into the who and what of Glued Solutions, you should start to see how – when combined with Smarter Building Technologies Alliance factories Direct Discount Lighting and Integrated Advanced Controls – Glued Solutions intimate technological understanding of wireless networked controls propels SBT’s innovative solutions beyond a simple widget that’s bought and sold.

Together Smarter Building Technologies Alliance factories, Direct Discount Lighting, Integrated Advanced Controls, and Glued Solutions, organize to bring you truly innovative, long-term technology solutions that bring the hundred-year-old-plus light bulb into the 21st Century.
