Sensors In Scalable Solutions: 4 Reasons Why We Use Them

 

Sensors are some of the greatest things ever to exist on our planet. This statement shouldn’t come as a surprise from a tech company, but there are many reasons why we stand by it. Sensors are very versatile solutions for many, every-day problems we all encounter, and we want more people to know about all the great aspects of having them in your offices, facilities, and buildings.

See our short list below to learn a bit about how sensors can make your life at least a little bit easier:


1. Easy installation

Most sensors are designed to be easily installed and be able to integrate into IT infrastructures in the most convenient way possible. There is no better way to equip your environment than tech that doesn’t take a lot of effort to install but still provide an all-around platform that delivers on its promises.

The usual procedure of installing sensors doesn’t take more than a couple of hours and your system is usually fully functional within a day. However, we recommend that you ask the help of professionals when installing the sensors, especially with setting up the connection to your IT infrastructure.

Installing sensors should be quick and straightforward

2. Wide variety of factors to detect

Now, to take a more focused look at the function of sensors: what can they actually do for you? There are countless types of sensors out there, each suitable for a certain market. If we focus on the real estate sector, the types of sensors that can have a significant impact are generally traffic tracking and occupancy related, but environmental factors are also not overlooked. It is extremely convenient for companies to track how their office spaces are being used, and to see the most popular areas. Data gathered can lead to serious cuts in expenses when executives oversee how space is used in the office. There might be areas or loose square meters that don’t ever get used, while still being paid for.

Besides cuts, employee/customer safety is also a key aspect managers want to have more control over. With sensors being able to detect temperature, humidity, noise, dust, and so on, it is easier than ever to gain complete oversight of the different factors that influence comfort and your employees’/visitors’ experience.

of factors that can be measured with sensors

3. Being able to see issues that you wouldn’t normally notice

Many times, sensors prove to be handy when they point us towards solutions we’ve never even thought of before. Due to the amount of data gathered and processed by sensors, often times we find ourselves being loaded with information about many aspects of our environment. But this is far from being a bad thing! Often times, the high amounts of data of different factors help to put them into perspective and see correlations that might not be obvious at first. For example, having an overview of how long windows and doors are opened might explain the inconsistent temperatures in your offices.

The wonder of sensors is that they provide perspectives to new solutions that are specific to certain environments, making them a great fit for experiments and constant improvement in buildings. Give them a try when you get the chance, you might find a solution to that annoying problem in your office you always wanted to solve.

4. Adopting sensors today prepares you for the trends of tomorrow

It’s safe to say that now is a great time to start investing in smart offices. The market is growing globally, with its value expected to go over $57 Billion dollars by 2025 (valued around $21 Billion in 2017). This fact serves as a great signal to start looking into the world of smart offices, and with new developments coming out every day, this market is a good one to keep an eye on for lovers of innovation.

Being an early adopter doesn’t only put you ahead of competitors: it also prepares you for the change future technology is about to bring to the market.

Looking into the future of smart offices definitely leaves a positive mark
