We live in an era of “going green” and reducing our energy footprint. From hybrid cars, to eliminating presevatives and everything in between, being conscious of consumption is prevalent. Yet, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, the United States wastes 30 percent of our overall energy – not so “green” or economical.

Smart Buildings are the solution.

According to the Harvard Business Review, Smart Building technology “improve[s] the quality and interactivity of urban services, while reducing costs and ensuring sustainability.”

And the analytics gathered from one smart building can generate an energy savings of 15 percent to 25 percent, without paying for costly retrofits or disrupting tenants, according to the Harvard Business Review

This is where Irisys steps in. By deploying a network of highly advanced thermal cameras and sensors throughout buildings, Irisys delivers real-time intelligence about the facility. This data can then be used to determine how and when a building is occupied, allowing you to save energy and money by spotting patterns and anticipating needs – providing an energy efficient, but also comfortable environment for tenants.

Smart buildings eliminate the guesswork of staffing, heating, lighting and cleaning and optimizing space by providing solid evidence.
