Use an automation system to improve the efficiency of everyday running of your business and at the same time save your company money on energy bills.
Apart from being a technology that is set to be ever present in a modernising world, it can also help in creating a greener more sustainable environment by using technology. There is a significant amount of electrical waste resulting from lighting, AV and IT equipment being left on whilst not in use.
By implementing an automation system into a building or single room, not only does it provide the reporting and monitoring tools to dramatically limit this waste. Which results in proactively reduce the cost of operations.
An automated system enables you to check what’s going on in and around your business even when your not there. You can incorporate lights, locks and cameras into the system so that you can have complete control over who comes and goes.
Use dimmers, timers and occupancy monitors to make sure that lights don’t get left on when the rooms not in use reducing the amount of energy wasted.
Have a button that can turn the whole building or a single room on or off with a single touch. Even if a room is forgotten and left on, the ability to remotely control a room means it can be switched off from nearly anywhere in the world.
Reduce the need for wires and leads everywhere to connect laptops to projectors to conference calls.
Schedule rooms using MS Outlook® directly from a touch panel integrated with Microsoft® Exchange Server. When a room is scheduled, thermostats can adjust and lights and AV equipment automatically turn on prior to the start of a meeting. If the meeting is re-scheduled, or after the participants leave the room, all settings and equipment can return to ‘vacancy’ levels.
Distribute advertising to multiple screens and select content from multiple sources, have timers set so that the content changes through out the day with the time or with changes in target market.
