ZiggyTec is a property technology start-upfounded in 2018 by Peter Murphy and Kieran Murphy. PropTech is a new, tech-savvy way to manage buildings through Internet of Things (IoT) technology. ZiggyTec hook up their sensors to the Cloud to provide live data feeds on air quality, water and energy usage. It’s an exciting time for the company and they’ve had a great response from world-leading companies such as Hines. You’d be mistaken in thinking that Peter and Kieran are related, however sharing a surname is not the only thing the pair have in common. They are both engineers and problem solvers by nature. They met over a decade ago while working at ESB and grew impatient around the lack of innovation in utility monitoring.
The pair launched ZiggyTec when they saw that Dublin’s retail estate sector was struggling with utilities monitoring. 2020 saw a huge boost to their business as Covid had the public concerned
about indoor air quality (IAQ). Today, their ZiggyAir monitoring service is their biggest line. When asked about their experience with the Local Enterprise Office, Peter said, “The Local Enterprise
Office has been a fantastic resource for us since day one, and we were delighted to represent the office at this year’s National Enterprise Awards. We’d recommend anyone starting up in business to reach out to their Local Enterprise Office – especially tech companies.” The future for ZiggyTec looks very promising; their aim is to get the ZiggyAir monitoring service into
every workplace to keep the air clean for safer indoor environments.
