This allows facility managers to automate processes like heating and lighting, and to enhance systems efficiency throughout the property. The result is tangible cost savings to the end user.



This article will detail some Smart Building products and solutions and how they are used for optimizing building efficiency.

Room occupancy sensors

As part of Smart Building automation, sensors are critical in the building’s data collection process. They inform critical decisions about the allocation of resources and they gather data constantly, then analyze the data to make automated adjustments for HVAC, ventilation or lighting.

People counting devices

People counting devices are key in Smart Building solutions. Positioned in doorways, they track the level of people leaving or entering a space accurately. Time-of-Flight technology is able to count many people at the same time, allowing fully accurate, bidirectional traffic monitoring. This advanced technology is also able to distinguish between people in close proximity to one another.

HVAC sensors

Smart Building products are able to reduce the amount of energy consumed by air-conditioning and heating by using sensors that work as part of an integrated system to ensure comfort requirements are met. Terabee’s People Counting L-XL device is well suited to be part of HVAC systems that are informed by real-time occupancy levels.

The importance of Smart Building products and solutions

The demand for Smart Building products and solutions is quickly increasing as businesses begin to appreciate the positive impacts the optimization of space can have. Smart Building products provide data that can be visualized and used for improvements to suit business needs. 

Buildings account for about 76% of electricity use (1), and heating and lighting are a large expense for many companies. Automating this process is good for the business and good for the environment as the levels of energy efficiency increase and wastage significantly decreases.

At Terabee, we are experts in the field of Smart Building products and integration of our devices and sensors into a broader smart system in buildings. The data our Smart Building products collect has proven invaluable for our clients and is contributing to informed decision-making about office space and real-estate requirements.
