Mid-Wales Housing Shortlisted For Top Award

Mid-Wales Housing Association are delighted to have been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Welsh Business Awards 2020 for the Best Use of Technology sponsored by Western Power Distribution.

The Welsh Business Awards celebrate success, excellence in best practice and the contribution Welsh businesses make to the wider community.

Mid-Wales Housing's application has been selected for their innovative use of advanced, intelligent technology that allows it to gain real-time information on the condition of its properties. The Association is piloting the project using Gateway technology, which provides valuable data on the temperature and humidity of its homes at 30-minute intervals via Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) direct to its offices in Newtown. The Association's Gateway is registered on The Things Network (TTN) - the first in Powys.

Mid-Wales Housing Association was also selected as a finalist for the CIH Welsh Housing Awards 2019 for this project in November last year.

Mr. Dean Marsh, ICT Officer at Mid-Wales Housing said: "Both myself and the Community Housing Team Leader have been working closely on this project. We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award which recognises our use of cutting-edge technology not only to improve the service we provide but also improves the lives of our tenants".

The winner of the category will be announced at the Welsh Business Awards Gala Dinner on Thursday 5th March 2020 at City Hall Cardiff.
