BaseN enables VolkerWessels to enter new era of energy efficiency through HOMIJ

BaseN Platform

Extreme scalability, continuous optimization and full transparency - for the entire lifecycle of houses

Thousands of new zero energy bill houses powered by BaseN Platform to be built by VolkerWessels

Through recording the entire lifecycle of the houses, BaseN Platform allows tracking the changes in energy consumption and environmental patterns over time. This enables optimization of various settings, ensures preventive maintenance in case of suboptimal performance of equipment, and gives full transparency to both the tenants and the service company.

BaseN manages the collection, storage, analysis, control and visual presentation of real-time data from device-specific smart meters (e.g. washing machine, laundry dryer, stove, oven) and sensor-equipped building components (e.g. heat pumps, ventilation units).

VolkerWessels chose BaseN Platform because of its extreme scalability, capable of managing millions of data elements per minute in real-time. Scalability is crucial for keeping up with the increasing amount of zero energy bill houses built around the Netherlands.

"On top of being able to process enormous amounts of data, BaseN displays the information in an understandable way and ensures that all parties only see the information that is relevant for them," says Hans Fabri, Director at Homij.

Each house is a system

In domestic applications, a small controller is installed in each house, and each installation component is connected to the controller. From the installation components all logging is gathered: settings, internal variables, alarms etc.


BaseN is the inherently scalable computing Platform for hosting billions of spimes, the core objects of the Internet of Things. Spime is the permanent logical brain and memory of any physical Thing. BaseN currently handles close to one million Spime transactions per second, and enables the transformation from physical products to intelligent services in any industry. BaseN offers new ways to capture, store, process, analyze, visualize, and control extreme volumes of things and data real-time, which enables next-generation digital businesses to greatly improve what they do and how they do it.
