    Get the most out of your building

    Now more than ever, your buildings have to be smart, connected, and flexible. For one thing, your employees expect it—especially as hybrid work styles become more and more common. And to keep pace with the competition, your buildings need to be responsive, personalized, safe, and climate-friendly. At the same time, you have to keep operating costs low, and justify your expenses. A scalable Interact connected lighting system is your answer.

    Make the green switch

    LED and connected lighting offer one of the simplest and most overlooked paths to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Switching to connected LEDs in buildings can quickly reduce the built environment’s lighting-related energy consumption by up to 80%. In addition, connected lighting helps to build the digital infrastructure that is so crucial for the adaptability, optimal operation, and efficient maintenance of lighting—making your buildings safer, healthier, and better able to respond to future challenges when they arise.

    Insights for the perfect workspace design

    Capture and analyze building occupancy data to understand how your office space is being occupied and used over time, then use the insights you gain to create a workspace that meets the needs of your business. Real-time occupancy data, accessible through a kiosk or smartphone app, can advise employees where to work, avoiding overcrowding and maintaining proper social distancing. Good space management also means that you can potentially lower your real estate costs without compromising workplace efficiency or employee engagement.

    Find your way to an amazing workplace experience

    Real-time indoor location data of your floorplan lets employees find free meeting rooms or available desks, or even to book them before getting to the office. Eliminate the time wasted searching for conference rooms, quickly locate colleagues wherever they are in your building, and direct employees to resources and locations to maximize your workplace’s responsiveness and efficiency. Give employees the ability to personalize the lighting over their desks using visible light communications paired with a smartphone app.

    Create your smart building ecosystem

    Published APIs and an open systems approach let you integrate Interact connected lighting with other service systems in your building, such as window shading, HVAC, and resource booking, as well as with building automation and control systems such as BACnet. An ecosystem approach is widely recognized as the most effective way to realize the full potential of smart buildings. By sharing data, commands, and controls with other systems, connected lighting can become a key component of your smart building environment.
