OccupEye and Enlighted Systems
In the corporate world, bosses tend to make any methods to ensure his/her subordinates will do their jobs. OccupEye and Enlighted systems are sensor technologies that can be placed in the workplace. The purpose of this technology is to monitor how often they are in their respective work spaces. The sensors can also detect vacant work spaces and meeting room, while it saves managing levels to minimize the companies’ expenses. This technology is based on the “Internet of Things” concept where it collects data through wireless transmission. The concept helps to ensure that the company is not wasting money by using, lights, heating, or air-con on empty work spaces. Based on tests, the concept alone has the potential to cut an office’s energy bill by 25 percent. The system can collect information based on an employee’s behavior, such as how often that employee is socializing with co-workers. The information gathered can be used to redesign spaces to help the employees to communicate more efficiently. Just like any technologies invented throughout history, the greatest drawback in this device is your privacy. Want to know more about this awesome device? Follow this link!
