    A smarter office with Interact Office software

    The Edge

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands


    At the Edge, a state-of-the-art connected lighting system is managed by Interact Office software to create a more comfortable, productive, and sustainable working environment.

    Innovation is our highest priority and we want to raise the bar in terms of data analysis, delivering new insight into the use of the office space. It shows how we can reduce CO₂ emissions from buildings and create a more sustainable world.”

    - Eric Ubels, CIO Deloitte

    Customer challenge


    The Edge is an innovative, 40,000 m2, multi-tenant office building in the Zuidas business district in Amsterdam. The main design goal was to create an intuitive, comfortable, and productive environment for employees that could serve as inspiration for sustainable building designs around the world.

    Data and insight

    Working closely with OVG and Deloitte, we delivered a connected lighting system that uses cutting-edge IoT technologies to enable data collection and insight over customized Interact Office software applications to enhance the flexibility of the open-plan office.

    The system not only allows employees to personalize the lighting and temperature at their workspaces using an Interact Office smartphone app, but also provides building managers with realtime data on operations and activities over Interact Office dashboards. This data allows facility managers to maximize operational efficiency as well as reduce the building’s CO₂ footprint.

    The system uses nearly 6,500 connected LED luminaires to create a ‘digital ceiling’ in the building’s 15 stories. With integrated IoT sensors in 3,000 of these luminaires that work with Interact Office lighting management software, the system captures, stores, shares and distributes information throughout the illuminated space.

    Facility managers use the Interact Office software to visualize and analyze this data, track energy consumption and streamline maintenance operations.
