Abstract: Glazing is known to be a significant contributor to a building’s heat load and has since garnered increased attention within the built environment industry over the years due to its strong implications towards the overall energy consumption and indoor comfort of the building. In recent years, Singapore has placed great emphasis on the need to achieve energy efficiency of building while providing occupant a more comfortable indoor environment. The government had since put in place regulations and roadmaps to mandate these requirements. As such, there is a pressing need for building to have a more effective window than the conventional windows as well as a monitoring system to meet these goals. The Electrochromic windows (ECW) and the use of IoT sensors has therefore been recognised to have tremendous potential in helping building drive down energy consumption while improving the indoor environment. This study would first provide a thorough understanding of the performance of ECW in Singapore’s tropical climate. Data will be collected through IoT climatic chambers to track their impact in terms of energy consumption as well as the thermal and visual comfort it can bring to the occupants. Next, since thermal imaging has grown in popularity amid the Covid-19 pandemic, another thermal imaging monitoring system was set up in a real office to study its potential in window performance monitoring. The findings from this research analysis provides extensive information on the performance of ECW as well as the application of IoT technologies for building monitoring.
