Digital and smart things are among the most hotly debated topics today. Life without any form of digital impact is unimaginable in this day and age. Since we live in a digital world, we have embraced the digital revolution in one way or another.
Similarly, we have brought the digital into our workplaces in the form of smart spaces. A smart space, broadly speaking, is any space that improves your quality of life without interfering with it.
While smart spaces take charge to meet the needs of their occupants and businesses, it brings benefits like reduced energy costs, increased productivity of the facility staff, improved space operations, greater support for sustainability efforts, and enhanced decision-making across the organization.
The smart space market is expected to grow due to an increase in greenfield projects and greater environmental concerns worldwide. In an effort to deal with environmental changes and to increase productivity, it’s essential to leverage a space with an updated smart technology solution. The change is much needed.
Smart spaces utilize cutting-edge technology to enhance occupants’ experience, sustain optimal performance levels, and reduce the costs of space operations. Various studies have found that high carbon dioxide levels and uncomfortable temperatures in a living space can greatly reduce productivity and satisfaction. It has been shown that productivity improved 60 percent in spaces with less carbon dioxide and a friendly environment in the air. This is where emerging solutions come into play, like sensors, actuators, microchips, and automated processes that can automatically control the operations of the space, including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, security, and other systems.
