The connected office building
IoT applications are the way to go for more satisfied and productive building users and lower operating costs.
More and more IoT-enabled devices and systems are finding their way into buildings. Manufacturers of building technology and building automation as well as building managers and facility managers can use this new technology to harvest a great deal of information about their facilities and devices. These systems and their information may be connected in smart ways to build powerful new IoT applications. These apps enable facility managers to boost building user satisfaction and cut operating costs.
Tackling office building challenges with the IoT
Few building managers and facility managers have a sweeping overview of their entire building. One problem is the narrow field of vision of many isolated IoT applications. This still beats seeing nothing at all – because blind spots in the building are an even bigger problem.
The true value of connected buildings only comes into play when we take a holistic view of all IoT applications. This takes the guesswork out of facility management. Actions are then based on hard data from every area rather than estimates or vague impressions.
