Manage and optimize your building’s energy usage and operational costs with V-Count’s smart building management system.
Connecting People & Technology
Smart buildings are not only areas for living, but they could also be office facilities or commerce facilities. They are considered investments whose value can be maintained by being cost-effective. They are designed with information technology that connects the subsystems that operate independently to be more efficient both for occupants and operators. Smart building technology interacts with occupants and empowers them to make use of the energy-saving concept and make actionable decisions on how to be more environmentally friendly.
This is where smart building footfall counters and occupancy analysis come into the picture. Building occupancy solutions can track the occupants’ entering and exiting times and analyze how the building space is occupied, and thus, make effective business decisions to save energy, minimize costs, and optimize the value of your building.
Smart Building Benefits
Optimize Air Conditioning and Lighting
Air conditioning, heating and lighting costs make up a big percentage of the total costs that are necessary to operate a smart building. By determining the occupancy levels within the building and the times when people arrive and leave, you will be able to optimize your air conditioning and lighting usage. Once, you have all the analytical data, you can decide to whether combine office space or schedule your staff operations accordingly to save on energy usage.
Keeping costs at a bare minimum is a vital part of every industry just as the smart building industry. Smart buildings offer useful building services such as thermal comfort, air quality, security, sanitation and heating that make occupants more productive, at the lowest cost and environmental impact as possible. They make use of information technology to connect subsystems, which usually operate independently, so these systems can share information to optimize total building performance. Once all the systems start operating in sync, the building will be utilized the energy more efficiently, hence decrease all the costs. You can also minimize your costs by measuring traffic and the occupancy throughout your building to see where either the most crowded areas are at or where all the unused areas stand.
At last, you can schedule your staff’s operations according to the occupancy levels on each floor and avoid paying overtime wage for the sanitation of under utilized areas.
People Counting Benefits for Smart Buildings:
Measure Real Time Density of People
Count the number of people entering and exiting your smart buildings. You can measure and analyze the total number of people in your whole building or floor by floor. There can either be as little as 20 people or over a 1000 people. With accurate people counting data, you can manage your air quality, heating and lighting costs according to the number of people at the optimal level.
Heat Map Benefits for Smart Buildings:
Track and record the paths and actions of the people entering and exiting your smart buildings and direct them to locations in a way that is beneficial for you in terms of energy and cost savings.
Improve Your Smart Building’s Layout
Discover the most used and most crowded areas within your smart buildings. This way, you can change the design according to where people go the most and improve the space utilization.
Optimize the Most Used Areas
Discover the number of your occupants that use different areas inside your buildings and see how you can improve the layout to be more occupant-friendly in terms of lighting, space and air quality.
