Buildings are typically the last place where you would look when you think about smart technology. However, smart building technology may give us the ability to improve the overall efficiency of an office building. Smart building technology can have a positive impact on the workplace environment. Currently, smart building systems are equipped with environmental sensors that keep tabs on the workplace, such as airflow, temperature, CO2, occupancy, and occupant density.
This can help to boost productivity, efficiency, and safety.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us, it’s important to maintain a safe workplace environment, and smart building technology can do just that. These smart building systems can increase the ventilation to a room, trigger disinfection procedures after occupants have left the room, or change the color of the room if the room becomes too crowded (and thus a safety concern). Smart building is a comprehensive way to use smart technology to increase the productivity and security of the workplace.
Smart building includes sensors can be connected to your HVAC systems, electricity, gas, water, and Internet network, so you can reduce your carbon footprint as well. Ultimately, this is a key way for businesses and homeowners alike to adapt their properties to the times.
