Connecting buildings and occupants

Our digital solutions help enterprises get connected through artificial intelligence and IoT (Internet of Things) by putting their data to work, helping facilities managers discover insights, find building efficiencies, and create other sources of value. Our next-generation smart buildings unlock infinite possibilities for occupants to digitally interact with their environment in real time, creating more sustainable operations and an occupant-driven building experience.

Smart building of the future

The Smart Building of the Future

It’s more vital than ever to cut emissions and buildings are a perfect place to start. Today they account for nearly 40% of global carbon emissions, but the smart building of the future will be more efficient, healthier and safer. It won’t happen overnight, but it’s a journey that starts today. Download our white paper and take your next step.

Energy Efficiency & Sustainability

Organizations can quantify sustainability and discover opportunities to conserve by analyzing data collected by the smart building’s energy management system. Data such as energy used, duration and timing of usage, and the mix of electricity sources — balancing traditional, self-generated, and renewable energy sources — will help organizations track their sustainability progress, reveal efficiency opportunities, and help them transition to decarbonized fuel sources.

Space, Wellbeing & Productivity

The smart building of the future is comfortable, safe, and centered on the needs of people. It empowers people to thrive and do their best to support the mission of the organization. By using technology to adapt to the changing needs of occupants and their environment, buildings can unlock the full potential of people as well as resources and investments.

Operational Efficiency & Equipment Performance

As smart capabilities evolve, buildings will be able to interact with people and conditions to self-adjust, self-heal, and self-notify. Organizations can amplify automation across multiple buildings and locations. Operations personnel will get comprehensive, real-time visibility into system operations through a single pane of glass, which cuts complexity, boosts productivity, and supports consistency, efficiency, and harmonization of operations.

Security, Safety & Compliance

Manual security processes of today can’t keep up with ever-changing threats and, as a result, can add friction to the occupant’s experience. The smart building of the future will automate physical security for improved protection and less friction for occupants, giving them peace of mind and more freedom of movement throughout a building or campus.

Smart buildings and digital solutions

While current smart buildings generally focus on balancing cost, efficiency, and emissions, the smart buildings of the future will also prioritize improved outcomes and experiences for occupants. Technology can help buildings adapt to new usage patterns to transform static floor plans into flexible, dynamic spaces that optimize utilization and enhance productivity, environmental sustainability, and human wellbeing.
