Operating system for proptech

The platform that collects data, services proptech apps, and enables the development of future apps

ProptechOS is an operating system which collects real-time data from building management systems, BIM, business and IoT devices, unifies it and makes it available for building managers and apps running on top of the OS.

New app:    1 000 integrations

New system in a building:    15 integrations

Refurbished room:    15-750 integrations

New app:    1 integration

New system in a building:    1 integration

Refurbished room:    1 integration

ProptechOS decreases the development time of smart building solutions

Why ProptechOS operating system?

More than just a middleware

ProptechOS is based on RealEstateCore, an open industry standard ontology specifically created to model smart building entities. RealEstateCore provides the smart building terminology to describe building components and their relationships and business processes.

This standardized way to describe relationships reduces time-to-market for smart building solutions. As a result, buildings become compatible with other systems and allow for easy addition of new functionality.

Why use the ProptechOS application ecosystem?

ProptechOS Apps

With ProptechOS and partner applications, you get access to best-in-class applications without needing more than one integration into your portfolio. ProptechOS partners are specialized for specific use cases, ranging from energy optimization to smart office end user experiences. You can use multiple partner applications to serve all of your proptech needs.


The ProptechOS application interface (the “integration contract” between ProptechOS and the application) follows RealEstateCore, the world leading standard. Any applications built for RealEstateCore can therefore run on ProptechOS, with no or little adjustments.


Partner applications go a step further than the general RealEstateCore application. In collaboration with the application providers, Idun has certified that the application can easily be installed, that it effectively and securely interacts with the ProptechOS data and that the end-to-end customer experience is valuable. In short, Certified Partner applications are certified to work and are ready to be used by any ProptechOS customer.

No additional integration points

Applications on ProptechOS can all use the same data and the same integration to in-building systems. That means that using a new application does not mean making a new integration. Quite the opposite one application often results in adding data to ProptechOS that can be leveraged by other applications.

The operating system for real estate

Best way to build

  • All real estate data available in a common format regardless of underlying system
  • A standard API for accessing data and interacting with edge systems
  • Rich useful digital twins of systems, buildings, people and processes
  • No vendor lock-in in either apps or edge integrations, RealEstateCore
  • ProptechOS is developed by the founders and leading developers of RealEstateCore
  • An SDK that ensures quick time-to-value for app developers
  • Maintain control and ownership of all data

Easiest way to use

  • Apps that are ready to use
  • Get value instead of starting integration
  • Choose between apps to find your best match
  • Gives true interoperability of apps – no empty promises of open api:s
  • Sensor data can be used by multiple apps. Each new app does not need new hardware investment
  • Handle user access once instead of keeping multiple directories up to date
  • Maintain control and ownership of all data
  • Pay as you go

ProptechOS connected one of Sweden’s largest property owner to an energy flexibility marketplace.

This is what they have to say:

“We have not needed to invest in a lot of new hardware, instead it has been about connecting different IT systems to the available trading system.“
