Switching to LED lighting has become more than just optimizing the usage of energy, and real estate and facility management leaders are aware of this as well. The lighting systems are now with sensors, controls and networks, creating smart buildings and improving the efficiency. By connecting all lighting, companies can now improve their productivity as well as revenue because of space optimization and utilization, which helps in making more informed real estate decisions, and it leads to improving employee satisfaction.
The Smart Building EvolutionReal estate and facility management leaders are very focused on reducing the cost of operations, meeting their sustainability objectives, and optimizing space, which makes smart building’s evolution a priority for them. Over the last few years, a lot of attention has been shifted to saving energy and meeting sustainability goals. But today, there is more focus over utilizing and optimizing space and increasing employee effectiveness in their workplace. Companies want to connect all of their employees with each other and the rest of the office to increase their productivity and enable their future and their work experience. To achieve this, businesses have started implementing a totally new work environment which is digital. They are integrating all the technologies used by the employees with sensors. This way companies can now connect their entire workforce with each other, therefore increasing collaboration, productivity as well as improve and simplify usability in the physical office of the company, thereby creating a more welcoming environment.
Energy Savings and SustainabilityBy implementing LED lighting, companies end up saving 50 percent or more energy than is required when they use traditional lighting technology. There are smart sensors that help with daylight harvesting and creating a more refined quality of lighting in their existing workplace. This way they are able to save an additional twenty to thirty percent of lighting energy.
Space Planning, Utilization and OptimizationOne of the biggest notions of smart buildings are their smart motion sensors. These smart sensors usually send important information to the lighting system and inform them of their space being occupied. This helps in saving energy across the office space and is a stepping stone for space optimization as well.
