IoT is transforming buildings into intelligent spaces that are better aligned with the needs of both property owners and tenants.
From equipment and personnel tracking to environmental monitoring and building controls automation – connected office solutions enable smarter decision-making, increased tenant satisfaction and lower operational costs.

Typical Applications

Desk and conference room utilization
Occupancy sensors provide real-time visibility to occupied and available spaces for individual desks and shared resources like conference rooms.

Facilities management
Monitor facility entry/exit points, kitchen and restroom equipment levels, HVAC, and more. Set alerts based on key events, such as when a door is left open, temperatures exceed comfort levels, or motion is detected.

Bluetooth beacons and sensors make it easy to provide employees and visitors with the tools needed to navigate large campuses with multiple floors and buildings.

Building access
Real-time employee badge access tracking and control provides accountability and supports a more secure facility.
