Smart rooms, i.e. rooms equipped with sensors, can significantly increase comfort and productivity. It’s all about arranging and using the floor space as optimally as possible.
Occupancy and reserving workplaces
A shortage of meeting rooms, or insufficient capacity or available workplaces in rooms, can cause frustration among employees. Facility managers must always look for solutions to use rooms as efficiently as possible; for example, to prevent large rooms being booked for too few people, or identifying why some workplaces are (almost) never used.
Smart rooms, i.e. rooms equipped with sensors, can significantly increase comfort and productivity. It’s all about arranging and using the floor space as optimally as possible. This starts with measuring occupancy. IMBuildings’ Office Occupancy Counter knows and measures how rooms are used. By measuring the footfall in every passageway, the occupancy can be determined, as well as the utilisation of a building or room.
These insights help the “users” of the building to quickly find the most optimal workplace. But the insights can also help facility managers reduce no-shows. It is possible to see whether a reserved workspace has actually been used, and this can be done in real time. If the workspace is not in use, it can be released and used by someone else.
Ultimately, the sensors also help prevent energy wastage and save costs. For example, heating can be lowered when occupancy is high (in relation to utilisation). With the data provided by the Office Occupancy Counter, you can also respond to air quality and health in relation to the room. For example, the CO2 values in public areas. The Office Occupancy Counter gains insight into buildings by looking at how many people are in a room, as well as where they are moving. This useful information offers opportunities for many types of buildings, and for types of organisations. Libraries, universities and offices for example. Rooms can be used optimally, the well-being of staff improved, costs saved, and work done more efficiently.
