Occupant health and well-being

We’re making buildings better, safer places to live and work.

Our Power over Ethernet cabling links together all of a building’s network-enabled technologies into a single, seamless system. Using a digital building app accessed via a mobile device or wall-mounted screen, occupants can fine-tune almost every aspect of their environment to suit their needs, improving well-being, safety and productivity.
Lighting

With networked intelligent lighting systems, occupants can make adjustments to lighting in order to improve mood and well-being, increase alertness and promote productivity. The systems closely approximate natural light by reducing glare and optimizing color quality, and can be programmed to suit individual needs or task requirements.

Temperature

Keeping air temperature at optimal levels supports occupant comfort and productivity, while also improving energy efficiency and reducing costs. In a networked smart building, sensors placed throughout a building can detect when people enter a certain space, alert the HVAC system to decrease or increase the temperature as required.

Environment

In an office, hotel or hospital, the digital building app allows occupants to personalize how their room environment works, looks and feels. Shower water temperature, window blind operation, alarm settings and audio/visual entertainment can all be controlled and adjusted, creating a more productive, pleasing environment.

Safety and security

A networked smart building allows for advanced security features for comprehensive threat intelligence and defense. Video surveillance technology can be integrated into the digital building application, providing further security and peace of mind for occupants.
