Schools benefit from collecting hard data. It provides a firm foundation for gaining practical insights and using those insights to make the right choices. That’s why Citaverde identified Interact Office as the ideal solution – the software and system architecture collects data from the connected lighting system and provides unique, actionable insights that improve businesses.They knew that Interact Office could help facilities managers at the schools to use buildings and classrooms more effectively while reducing energy usage and lowering CO2 emissions.
Almost every light point in Citaverde College’s schools is equipped with sensors that detect daylight and presence. If there’s nobody around or there is adequate natural light, the lights stay off – the lighting only switches on when necessary. By sharing data collected via smart sensors embedded in the lighting infrastructure, with the Interact Office software dashboards, the school also gains relevant hard data about its building and classroom occupancy. The intuitive dashboard shows where extra savings can be made in real time (for example, by identifying opportunities to reduce heating or cleaning costs). This enables effective management of daily processes.
