The smart building’s evolution is top of mind for real estate and facilities management leaders who continuously focus on reducing operating costs, meeting sustainability objectives, optimizing space within their real estate portfolio and improving their employees’ daily work experience.

One of the typical hallmarks of any smart building is its motion sensors. Such sensors send key information, often to the lighting system, to let it know that a particular space is occupied. While this has helped contribute to energy savings and safety of employees, it has done little to contribute to space optimization.
