    Keep your employees healthy and comfortable


    Interact Office Environmental monitoring software and sensor bundles can monitor temperature at both the room and desk level, relative humidity and noise levels. Alerts as a result of fluctuations allow you to act immediately to ensure the optimal environment delivery for your employees. In addition, the sensor bundles monitor daylight levels and occupancy, as well as count the number of people in any given space, and are Bluetooth enabled to allow for indoor location services. By offering differentiated working conditions, you can create a healthy place to work and reduce absenteeism.  

    Benefits

    Data at your fingertips


    Poor thermal comfort control can lead to a 6% drop in staff performance when offices are too hot, and 4% when offices are too cold*. Collect data on temperature and humidity levels via sensor bundles embedded in the connected lighting system. Using the data collected, you can take corrective action when necessary.

    Reduce environmental related ailments


    Employee discomfort, ill health and reduced performance can be linked to poor environmental conditions. According to the World Green Building Council, good quality lighting can increase employee productivity up to 23%, and with added environmental monitoring capabilities, ailments associated with poor temperature regulation can also be reduced.

    Create the ideal working environment for employees


    Employees are one of the biggest investments for any business – keeping them comfortable and healthy is critical. Using real-time data from Environmental monitoring software ensures you can provide an environment that supports their well-being.

    Create the optimal environment for employee performance


    Employee performance can decrease by as much as 66%** when there is distracting noise, and it can take an average of 25 minutes to return to a task after an interruption. Track noise levels within your offices and use the data to advise employees on quiet areas for concentration, or livelier areas for collaboration.

    How Environmental monitoring works


    Sensor slots inside LED luminaires can be equipped with temperature and humidity sensors to provide a cost-effective way of leveraging the lighting infrastructure to create a dense sensor grid.
     

    The sensors collect real-time data on the environment, which can be integrated with other building management systems such as HVAC to trigger direct environmental control. Data can be analyzed for further optimization of climate control systems.
     

    The sensors are smaller than a match box and are easily upgradable on-premise with a simple click and swap via the upgradeable sensor slot. This future-ready solution, unique to Philips professional office luminaires, means there is no need to remove the luminaire from the ceiling when it is ready for upgrade, but rather the sensors can be fitted from the front of the luminaire. This technology gives organizations the flexibility to upgrade performance as new technology becomes available, or when a new tenant would like to benefit from improved functionality.
