But the clue is in the name, the smart technology does it all for you and gathers the data so that all you need to do is review the report and implement any changes you need.
By connecting a network of sensors, your building can provide you with real-time information on how it’s being used, how much energy is being consumed, problems with cleanliness or the air quality or maintenance issues.
This can have a direct impact on your running costs and your employee satisfaction levels. The opportunity to capture data that you’ve never had access to before is an exciting one.
Through managed service applications you can collect data on indoor air quality (IAQ), footfall, occupancy levels, lighting quality, climate, leaks and anything else that you think is important to know about your building and your staff.
It can all be done remotely – taking time-sapping manual tasks and turning them into automated action plans.
Thanks to the pandemic, capturing levels of occupancy became essential to implement social distancing but now employers are recognising that the data can also be used to re-configure or even reduce office footprint. You’ll be able to see which parts of your space are being used the most and which are used the least, giving you invaluable data to make strategic decisions.
You’ll be continuously monitoring aspects of your building that have a direct impact on your profitability and productivity.
Not only can you monitor what’s happening but you can also control it using smart technology. You can control the temperature and lighting levels of your building remotely, using the data you’re capturing to know when you can turn temperatures and lights down – saving you money on energy bills and also reducing your carbon footprint.
Smart building technology could be the missing piece in your office jigsaw puzzle.
This is the difference that aligning technology with the user can have on your office. Daring to build a system around you, rather than the other way round, will have huge benefits for your business.
