IoT in Buildings

Motion-sensitive lights. Floor sensors for occupancy. Beacons to gauge workspace utilization. The IoT triggers powerful automation for a wide assortment of applications. Quantifiable building insights. Each data point generated by the IoT is a quantifiable part of the tangible workplace. That means understanding more about how the workplace functions—who’s using it.

Better resource utilization. Consider the resources of the Workplace, Space, Manpower, and Technology. Smart buildings take these resources and quantify them within the context of broader facilities.

Reduced energy consumption. A product of automation and quantifiable building insights, green initiatives become simpler through smart buildings. Whether it’s motion-sensitive lighting or better HVAC management through a sensor-controlled system, lower energy costs benefit businesses and the environment.

Reduced operational costs. Why make an investment in the IoT? For most companies, it’s about ROI. The insights generated by a smart building need to add up to cost savings through better decision-making. If you can use data from X to make Y conclusion that saves $Z, there’s power in leveraging smart building technologies.
