Using people counting devices is crucial in public buildings
Public buildings managers are spending large amounts of money to ensure they provide high levels of safety and a wide range of services. Currently, around 60% of the world’s electricity is being used by businesses as they have ventilation systems and lighting turned on, even when rooms are empty.
Therefore, it is essential that facility managers set an example by reducing costs where possible and taking action to be more environmentally friendly and lower their energy consumption. This blog post will look at how people counting technology plays an important role to reduce energy use and save businesses money.
An ideal solution for public buildings
People counting devices are an ideal solution to help businesses reduce their energy use and expenditure and enhance user experience. They can be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and other systems to provide people counting data on room and building occupancy, empty or under-used spaces.
Networked occupancy monitoring sensors can be used to automate power-hungry heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) and lighting. The data can also provide insights to enable facility managers to reduce energy expenditure and carbon emissions. The data from people counting systems can also be used to make informed decisions regarding maintenance, planned cleaning, stock replenishments and other business inputs that use budget.
Other key benefits of introducing people counting solutions into a business include:
- Increase workplace safety and comfort
- Make informed business decisions
- Reduce energy consumption
- Reduce costs
- Utilize rooms and spaces more efficiently
- Better allocation of resources and staffing
