Smart Office

In a large office environment, facilities management is complex. Both property and facility managers are tasked with tracking the usage, maintenance, and upgrade of every cabinet, recycling bin, bathroom, printer, vending machine, and so on. The reality is that facility managers simply cannot check every piece of office furniture and equipment each day. The solution? Automate the entire office space.

The Smart Office Opportunity

Smart office solution design and implementation is complex and often cost prohibitive, due to the need to integrate a wide range of sensors and securely send gathered data to the cloud. Additionally, sensors use a wide range of communication protocols (M-Bus*, ModBus*, and BACnet*). In most cases, this requires data to be converted to Internet Protocol (IP) before it can be sent to the cloud for analytics and device management.

To overcome these challenges, an end-to-end solution is needed that delivers secure, low-cost, high-performance, and reliable sensors that can be installed and communicate with the cloud in a matter of minutes.
