Over the past few years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a hot topic. It refers to interconnected devices that can communicate with each other over the Internet without any human intervention. IoT has the ability to transform any traditional environment into a smart one. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the IoT technologies are currently being used throughout houses, cars, public services, and even offices.
Transforming your office into a smart one will bring a number of benefits to your business, including a reduced business cost while increasing business security and employee productivity. These benefits are perhaps the reason why the global smart office market will reach $49,7 billion by 2024 (Zion Market Research, 2019).
Here are three reasons why you should adopt a smart office today:
1. Save Energy Usage to Reduce Cost
Maximizing one’s business resources are one of the goals of every business. A smart office can improve your energy management efficiency by utilizing IoT and smart devices. Through a single dashboard, you can monitor the energy consumption that your office use and the system can set a plan to optimize your energy usage, such as adjust the room temperature and light automatically. These capabilities will allow businesses to maximize resources, save energy, and reduce cost.
2. Increased Business Security and Seamless Working Environment
There might be tens or hundreds of people walking to your office every day. It could be your employees, customers, or maybe some intruder with ill intent. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure the security of your business while also maintaining a seamless experience for visitors. This can be done by having a visitor management system, consisting of security solutions such as CCTV and access control. By having it, you will not only be able to monitor all visitors but also set access perimeter for them, meaning that they can only visit designated places such as meeting rooms and public places. When an access card is being misused, or an intruder breaches your office without access, there will be a warning notification. All these features will enhance the security and working environment of your business.
3. Increased Employee Productivity
With smart technologies being continuously developed, there is a new way for employees to approach their work. Businesses are expected to implement smart office solutions so that they can increase employees’ productivity and ensure more efficient collaboration among employees. This is achieved through the use of solutions such as smart conferencing and smart meeting rooms. All of these solutions are integrated so that you can use them with ease.
