Located on the CABR campus in Beijing, the four-story building contains 4,025 m2 of office space and is the first IoT-ready connected lighting project in China. In addition to increased operational efficiency, Interact Office software supports increased employee comfort and productivity by allowing people to adjust light levels to suit their task and preference as well as personalize other building services via a personal control app.
After two years of operation, the China Academy of Building Research (CABR) published the building performance results. The report showed that along with other building services responsible for energy consumption, connected LED lighting and Interact Office software delivered a significant contribution to improvements in service quality, user satisfaction and energy efficiency. The pilot project illustrated the importance of connected lighting systems in improving building efficiency and creating smart workspaces for the future.
Since the installation of Interact Office, the CABR building has been able to deliver a significant decrease in energy consumption and an improvement in operational efficiency. According to an employee user survey, user satisfaction with the lighting systems is an impressive 100%, with employees ranking the lighting in first place among all other building systems.
