Signify raises bar for health and wellbeing in offices with new IoT sensor bundles

Multi 2020 03 16Lighting company Signify has announced the launch of new sensor bundles that can monitor occupancy, the number of people, temperature (at room and at desk level), noise levels, daylight levels and relative humidity

The IoT sensor is Bluetooth enabled, to provide indoor positioning and navigation capabilities. Bundling and delivering these sensing capabilities into one unit eliminates the need for multiple sensors and is also much more cost effective for businesses. The ability to differentiate the office working experience can help to create a healthy place to work and help organisations reduce absenteeism.

These new sensors are smaller than a match box and are easily upgraded on premise with a simple click and swap via an upgradable sensor slot, a unique feature across a range of Philips professional office luminaires. There’s no need to take the luminaires out of the ceiling as the sensors can be fitted from the front of the luminaire. This future-ready solution means that luminaires can now be upgraded with different sensors at any time. This gives organisations the flexibility to benefit from increased functionality coming along in the future or for example when a new tenant wants increased functionality.

One of Signify’s customers is EDGE, an OVG Real Estate company. EDGE embraces wellbeing, sustainability, design and technology in all the buildings it develops, including their own. “EDGE has worked with Signify from the first disruptive power-over-ethernet LED in The Edge building, towards the latest innovation in Signify light infrastructure implemented in EDGE Olympic Amsterdam. Driving health and productivity of building users through technology,” said Erik Ubels, CTO of EDGE.

“The extremely accurate localisation and superior people counting capabilities allow us to optimise the user experience and facility management in our buildings. The new environmental monitoring capabilities are an additional contribution to our employees’ wellbeing,” he added.
