What smart technology should you prioritise in your facility?
Every year smart technology integrates itself more into homes, buildings and facilities. As people come to rely on these new technologies more and more, the time will come when smart tech becomes a ‘need to have’ and not a ‘nice to have’ in facility management. If you’re a manager and haven’t considered integrating smart tech into a facility, you may soon need to. Keeping this in mind, we’ve put together a few pieces of intro tech that will help your facility progress into this new age.
Smart lighting is the perfect introductory piece of smart technology and one that works perfectly in a commercial building, school, aged-care facility and more. Smart lighting allows your occupants to have complete control of the lighting’s brightness, warmth, colour and even the ability to schedule off and on times. Since its introduction in 2012, it’s quickly become a consumer favourite due to its easy setup and ease of use. All it takes is a hub connected to wifi, an app, and the right lights.
Smart lighting is just the beginning when it comes to touchless technology – particularly in the workplace. The last couple of years have reshaped the way people regularly interact with surfaces, switches and screens. So offering the ability to interact without having to use touch has become a big incentive in attracting people to your facility. These include everything from touchless hand sanitisers all the way up to the classic automatic doors.
Facility management software
If you’re in charge of a residential facility, then integrating the use of facility management software is a great way to streamline processes and interact with your community more effectively. Utilising software like MYBOS can help your facility manage influxes of tenant requests, amenity bookings and also allow you to communicate with them en masse.
