Improve Occupant Interactivity and Issue Resolution

Building Interactivity

Our always-connected world is making us more hands-on. We want information at our fingertips and the ability to take immediate action. These expectations are closely aligned with technological advances in personalization and mobility technology implemented in IoT-based building solutions.

Personalization

It can be difficult to regulate office temperatures due to many factors, including the number of occupants, heat sources, windows, and the amount of sunlight reaching those windows. In the worst case, some employees may seek the warmth of a space heater while others, just a few feet away, are sweating.

Offering occupants more control, a new breed of IoT solutions accept individual requests (e.g., more heat or air conditioning) via a simple app or web page. Building temperatures are moderated and optimized based on occupant input.

Mobility

Building managers want an easy-to-use interface to visualize building data—from anywhere, at anytime. Also important are building alerts and notifications sent to mobile phones, tablets, and wearable devices, like a smartwatch. In doing so, mobile technology greatly facilitates fast and precise decision-making.
