Poly | HP meeting room devices become an integral part of your Smart Building
What are Smart Buildings?
Smart Buildings communicate with internal systems, devices, and sensors such as HVAC, lighting, alarms, cameras, etc. to self-regulate building operations, minimize environmental impact while making it safer and more comfortable for occupants.
Powered by Internet of Things (IoT)1 and Power over Ethernet (PoE)2 et al, smart buildings are poised to play an ever-increasing role in helping businesses manage the return to office and achieve sustainability compliance goals.
Some interesting examples3 of what Smart Buildings can do:
- Use people counting sensors to automatically turn off lighting, turn off air-conditioning, and trigger an autonomous disinfection process as soon as meeting rooms are vacated.
- Turn on the building tenant’s allocated space lighting systems as soon as tenant swipes their access card at building entrance.
- Increase ventilation as occupancy increases.
The Poly | HP & Neowit Advantage
While smart buildings hold a lot of promise, without a single cohesive view of the data from the innumerable devices and sensors in a building, it is difficult for businesses to optimize space utilization, reduce carbon footprint and overall make smarter business decisions.
Further, people-counting and air quality sensors can cost anywhere from $1000 to $3000 USD. Poly | HP Studio X Series devices come with sensors built-in which directly translates to cost savings.
That’s why Poly | HP has partnered with Neowit – a leader in Smart Building technology. Neowit’s flagship product, the Neowit Platform, is a modern and scalable IoT, facility management and workplace portal that provides comprehensive visibility into your office space and assets, by aggregating data from various IoT sensors & devices into a single pane of glass.
Powered by the Poly Lens Management & Insights API
The publicly available Poly Lens Management and Insight API supports all features in the Poly Lens admin portal and enables you to easily plug data from a tenant into third-party platforms such as Neowit. You can use this feature to optimize your workflows, build custom applications or extract the data from Poly Lens in a way that works for your organization.
Smart Buildings Are the Future
With environmental impact, financial and operational considerations, Smart Buildings are clearly an area of global interest. Making the best use of real estate through insights and analytics provided by partnerships such as the one between Poly | HP and Neowit which will undoubtedly deliver a better bottom line for business. Here’s a quick intro video about Neowit.
Please stop by the Poly | HP booth #2Q250 at ISE Barcelona for a demo.
- The Internet of Things (lot) describes the network of physical objects — “things” that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet. These devices range from ordinary household objects to sophisticated industrial tools.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology for implementing wired Ethernet local area networks (LANs) that enables the electrical current necessary for operating each device to be carried by Ethernet data cables instead of standard electrical power cords and wiring.
