At Network Products Inc (NPI), we offer intelligent building solutions that can make your building more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of smart buildings.

Save Money on Energy

The cost of heating and cooling an entire building can get very high. Before you know it, you are spending hundreds of dollars every month to keep the inside of your building at a comfortable temperature. The great thing about smart building designs is that they are highly efficient. This means they use up less energy than traditional buildings. If you invest in smart technology for your building, you can expect to save on energy costs.

Good for the Environment

The less energy a building uses, the better it is for an environment. If you install smart technology in your building, you can make a difference in helping the environment stay clean and safe.

Retain Employees

These days, comfort is essential for employees in all industries. If workers do not feel comfortable while they are doing their job, they may not be as effective as they could be. With smart technology, you can create the most comfortable environment possible for your employees. The system will keep the building at a comfortable temperature at all times, so workers will not feel too cold or too hot.

Increase Property Value

If you ever plan to sell your building in the future, having smart technology can only benefit you. Buyers these days want to buy buildings that already have smart connected systems. If your building has smart technology, it can greatly increase its property value.

Keep Everyone Safe

Another important benefit of an intelligent building is that it ensures everyone’s safety. For instance, a smart building has several security cameras so that you are alway aware of who comes in the building. If you see someone suspicious come in, you can always alert the proper authorities. Smart buildings also can detect smoke right away and tell everyone to get out of the building in the event of a fire.

Optimized Site Cleaning

Some intelligent building technology can detect which area of the building have been used frequently and require cleaning. The technology can alert facility managers so that they assign cleaning staff to clean the appropriate areas.

Monitor Office Equipment

Smart technology may also monitor office equipment, like desks and copy machines, and alert managers when it is time to get it repaired. If the equipment has reached the end of its life and would be too costly to get repaired, it may need to get completely replaced.
