Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben once said “with great power comes great responsibility”. With better technology, there is a responsibility to ensure that a smart building is running efficiently – saving the environment, and at the same time creating a space that is both productive and safe.
One example of a smart solution is MHT Lighting’s inspeXtor® system, which provides a building owner with full control andunderstanding of their building’s energy consumption.
Through the use of Smart Sensor technology, appliances such as lights, HVACs, etc. can detect occupancy, turning on and off depending on the vacancy of an area or room. This helps to reduce any excessive usage of electricity while at the same time creates a productive area for people to work in as soon as they walk in.
This same technology has also been taken one step further to even include Daylight Harvesting. Daylight harvesting essentially means that building owners can set a lumen level that their occupants prefer, and if the natural lighting meets the lumen value, the lights will remain off. Only once it dips below that lumen value, will the Smart Sensor determine that it is too dark, and the lights will switch on.
Buildings with PoE solutions like MHT Lighting’s inspeXtor® system installed can achieve up to 90% of the LEED certification requirements simply because of how efficient this technology is at helping to save electricity and the environment. IN fact, having PoE solutions can help to reduce carbon footprint emissions from a building by up to 80%.
This show just one example of how PoE-enabled technology can automate and provide convenience to the lives of occupants within a building, while maintaining or even improving the productivity of the space and further benefiting the environment that we all live in.
