As technology advances, our homes and workplaces have become increasingly intelligent, occupied by “smart” internet-connected devices capable of monitoring occupancy, temperature, air quality and other aspects of the internal environment. The number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices worldwide is expected to total 14.5 billion by the end of 2022, according to IoT Analytics.
Businesses focused on workplace health and safety as well as sustainability initiatives have increasingly implemented IoT devices such as connected lights and sensors to create smart spaces with optimal energy efficiency and cleanliness. Subsequently, the enterprise IoT market increased by 22.4 percent to $157.9 billion in 2021 and is expected to keep expanding at a CAGR of 22.0 percent from 2022 to 2027, IoT Analytics forecasts.
If you’re considering ways to rein in spending while promoting efficiency, smart workspace technology can significantly impact your operations. For example, a global advertising agency lowered their annual energy costs at one location from $183,600 to $134,000 with a free cooling economizer and Meraki MT sensors.
