Improved occupant experience leads to happier, healthier and more productive building occupants. Workspace conditions such as air quality, lighting color and brightness, room temperature, noise levels and glare have been shown to have a measurable impact on the productivity of employees and students. For landlords and real estate owners, comfortable tenants are more likely to renew leases.
People spend up to 90% of their day indoors. Poor ventilation can lead to drowsiness, headaches and trouble concentrating, as well as an increased risk of infection. Chemical pollution from both external and internal sources can cause a range of conditions.
Monitor particles and VOCs in the air to ensure workspaces stay within health and safety regulations and to promote employee health. Automatically modulate air filters based on occupancy or particulate count to ensure conditions remain optimal.
Keep lighting levels at comfortable levels automatically throughout the day. Tailor the type and temperature of lighting to the time of day and the type of work in each room. Save energy by switching lights off when rooms are empty.
Prevent the discomfort and distraction caused by glare from direct sunlight. Automate raising and lowering of shades in windows that are otherwise out of reach. Maximize daylight during darker hours and reduce air conditioning costs by blocking sunlight at hot times of day.
Temperature and Humidity
Automated HVAC reduces energy costs, lessens the workload on facilities staff, and creates ideal conditions for staff.
Regulate air temperature and humidity in individual zones to adjust to different levels of occupancy and room dimensions. Proactively adjust when occupancy is above or below expected levels.
Room and Desk Scheduling
Make it easy for employees to find a meeting room or a desk to use. Occupancy data can be used to mark whether a desk is occupied or not or release a meeting room when the attendees do not show. Tie in facilities management systems to ensure desks and meeting rooms are cleaned when they need to be.
