Remote occupancy monitoring can help facility managers allocate shared spaces (such as meeting rooms) more efficiently. One can also use space occupancy data to tailor one's services to tenants' needs.
Fremont, CA: The rapid digitalization of building and facility management in recent years has allowed the collection of large volumes of digital data for physical assets and processes. Because of the proliferation of internet-connected devices, it is now possible to collect, access, and analyze this data remotely, i.e. without being physically present.
The rise of IoT has resulted in an increase in the number of building deployments centered on remote monitoring. This opens up a plethora of possibilities for improving the efficiency, quality, safety, and timeliness of business processes. It also assists building and facility managers in making informed, data-driven decisions.
Reasons one should implement remote monitoring.
Managing Space Allocation
Remote occupancy monitoring can help facility managers allocate shared spaces (such as meeting rooms) more efficiently. One can also use space occupancy data to tailor one's services to tenants' needs. Insights into how frequently meeting rooms are used, for instance, can lead to downsizing. Alternatively, one can use an occupancy heatmap to visualize space occupancy data.
More Occupant Health and Well-being
Remote access to information about the conditions of rooms and spaces in their buildings is possible for facility managers. This information enables one to create ideal conditions in each rented space in order to maximize one's clients' comfort. Furthermore, real-time insights into the temperature, humidity and other conditions of rooms and spaces allow one to improve one's clients' health and well-being.
Sustainability and Energy Efficiency
Remote monitoring of spaces is critical for optimizing real estate energy consumption. Remote data collection can be utilized to fine-tune HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system operation in order to avoid BTU (British Thermal Unit) losses.
As a result, worn-out equipment and, in some cases, an unexpected need for replacement, as well as higher energy bills, result. Remote monitoring improves the building's environmental performance and enables facility managers to implement effective sustainability programs.
