How IoT Enabled Smart Spaces Impact Cost, Compliance, Security, and Productivity
The exciting thing about the internet of things (IoT) is that it lifts the veil on an entirely new realm of untapped potential, that just wasn’t within our grasp before it came about. The promises of IoT are no longer the lofty fantasies of science fiction, they are practical realities that offer an exciting breadth of opportunities worth exploring.
When we talk about IoT, in the technical sense, we are referring to networks of cameras and sensors that reveal how space is really being used, and unlock new potential ways to use space more effectively. This real-time data is collected into ARCHIBUS, where it’s melded with KPI dashboards, interactive data models, and a framework that can be used to plan and execute optimized space strategies.
Different types of tech make more or less sense depending on the circumstances and needs of a space and its occupants, so each implementation depends on your organizational goals. Here below is a list of ways that IoT enabled smart spaces can impact the cost, productivity, compliance, and security of your organization.
1. Reduce Your Real Estate Footprint
Identify underutilized facilities and space, down to the seat.
2. Create a More Productive Workplace
Configure your space around purpose and support productivity with innovative space-sharing.
3. Real-Time Accountability for Space Use
Bill occupants for actual space use, and for spaces that are booked but unoccupied.
4. Forecast Occupancy for Project Planning
Track trends in space use to plan for future space needs.
5. Protect and Monitor Secure Locations
Use heat mapping to monitor activity in secure locations.
6. Comply with Space Capacity
Use accurate, real-time headcounts to ensure that spaces comply with capacity regulations.
