    Smart Buildings: Maximize Utilization. Save Money.

    Posted by Brette Bennett on Jan 25, 2013 4:59:00 PM

    Thermal technology makes buildings smarter and more efficient. An integrated people counting solution deployed throughout a building increases its intelligence by improving utilization; helping systems constantly evolve to fluctuating occupancies; and lowering overhead costs through reduced energy usage.
