Integral room automation and an intelligent lighting concept provide a personal sense of well-being

Room digitalization and intelligent lighting Much more than just switching a light on or off

Light, temperature, and humidity have a significant influence on our personal well-being, and our sensitivity to these factors differs depending on our age, habits, and health. For example, a gray rainy day can affect a person’s mood, bright light can cause headaches, and if the air is too cold or too warm it can cause real discomfort.

In buildings, where we all spend a good portion of our private and professional lives, our personal sensitivity determines whether light and room climate factors such as temperature or humidity will create feelings of comfort or discomfort and will affect productivity and performance.

Intelligent lighting and shading provide an excellent working environment

Our Emalytics solution supports you in identifying and meeting the requirements in the building based on room use and user behavior. User behavior should be factored into room automation to ensure long-term productivity and to reduce service costs. With our IoT-based Emalytics building management system, we provide you with the technological foundations to customize your room digitalization.

Lighting, heating/cooling, ventilation, humidification, blinds, as well as all of the external influencing factors, such as the outdoor temperature, sunshine, use, and user activity, are all combined by means of integral room automation to create an open room automation concept. This results in more energy-efficient operation of rooms and maximum user comfort.

With Emalytics, there is no limit to the functions your building can perform. You can always adapt it to any changes in use. The building can be updated and upgraded during operation, which means that it can be adapted at any time.
