Connected spaces

Smart workspaces are being built globally on the foundations of a well-designed data network.

Spaces are not just rooms, but, are becoming intuitive and intelligent business resources. Today, more than ever, businesses understand the need to connect current IoT devices, and those planned for the future, linking spaces together.

Smart building connectivity

The Internet of Things (IoT) is advancing, enabling and empowering a new type of smart building.

This is a building that is better aligned with the priorities of building owners and occupiers alike. Scenariio have the ability to simplify how building systems connect to one another, analysing building data that uncovers new business insights capable of providing greater performance.

Whilst most buildings offer a basic level of intelligence, it is now possible to get even more from a connected system. Security alerts and actions from smarter sensor triggers, automated energy saving policies, real-time occupancy to speed up finding a free work area and personalised preferences for a meeting room are all possible.

The benefits include:

 

  • On average office space is less than 50% utilised with a desk costing £10k per year.
  • European businesses could save £220 billion in reduced rental costs if office buildings were refurbished to their most efficient standards.
  • Improving the light and air quality of a building can boost employee productivity by 25%.

What is the internet of things (IoT)?

 

A network of connected sensors, devices and objects that have the ability to gather and share data from their environments with other networks and devices. Analysing and processing the data lets these “smart” devices perform their functions with little or no interaction.

Space utilisation: lights and insights

A dense sensor network provides accurate and detailed information on exactly how a building is being used.

Software can utilise live sensor data from a smart lighting system in real-time, space-by-space, generating reports on occupancy, temperature, power usage and light level. Reports can graphically display utilisation by day, time, type of space, by room, or building.

Precise business strategies can be implemented as a result of capturing the sensor data. Whether that’s part of the environmental policies or people management systems on offer. Knowing exactly how a building performs can give businesses enhanced information to make smarter commercial decisions.

 

These reports include:

  • Real-time occupancy
  • Temperature
  • Continual monitoring of actual energy usage
  • Detection of motion patterns, daylight and room temperature

 

Up to 80% lower running costs can be achieved using a dense sensor network.

Precise energy-saving strategies can then be implemented as a result of the data gathered by the dense sensor network. The system is future- proof and is ready for more intelligent infrastructure to be added when required.

 

All sensors send real-time data to the network control centre ‘the smart director’,  providing you with a real-time status report as well as view the user to identify patterns from historical data.
