Abstract: In view of the poor accuracy of single value of heat energy consumption and the weak real-time monitoring of energy consumption in buildings, an intelligent monitoring system for thermal energy consumption of buildings under the internet of things (IoT) technology is designed. The overall structure of the intelligent monitoring system for thermal energy consumption of buildings is constructed. The DSP integrated signal processor is used for data acquisition and real-time information processing of thermal energy of buildings. A wireless intelligent gateway for building thermal energy consumption monitoring is designed by using internet of things technology, a wireless sensor network model is constructed. The VME bus is used as information transmission channel to realise intelligent monitoring for thermal energy consumption. The test results show that the real-time monitoring accuracy of the system is better than that of the traditional method and it has a good application prospect in all aspects.

Keywords: internet of things technology; IoT technology; thermal energy of buildings; energy consumption monitoring; system design.
