PepperDash hit a big milestone this month: the issuance of our first patent from the US Patent and Trademark Office for our Sentegy® facility management platform. PepperDash has been developing a means of enabling buildings to “think for themselves”, i.e. make important facility management decisions without human input. Patent number 8751432, entitled “Automated facilities management system”, covers our core technology. Sentegy® identifies important patterns in human occupancy and system behavior, then accurately predicts future occupancy and behaviors, which is the most critical component in optimizing facility management.
