Smart offices: savings, safety and employee convenience in the 21st century

27. 05. 2024 | Natalie Bezděková

Employees in office occupations spend a large part of their lives in offices, which increases the importance of a good working environment for their health and efficiency. The modern trend is smart offices, which, in addition to having a positive impact on employees, offer companies systems for energy saving, security and asset protection.

A smart office uses advanced technology and automated systems to increase work efficiency and employee comfort and safety. The goal is to create a productive and collaborative environment that also reduces operating costs and promotes sustainability.

Comfortable Working Environment

According to Pavel Liskovec, manager at LOXONE, a smart office automates technologies such as lighting, air conditioning and shading to create a comfortable working environment. Automation eliminates the need for manual setup, which contributes to better employee productivity.

Jan Včelák of SENZOMATIC stresses the importance of monitoring temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide concentration in offices. A high CO2 concentration reduces attention and promotes fatigue, while the right humidity level between 35-65% ensures a healthy environment and protects the building structure.

Energy savings

Smart offices are also designed to reduce operating costs. Automated systems control lighting, heating, air conditioning and shading to optimise energy consumption. For example, automatic blinds can passively cool a room and reduce the need for air conditioning.

Security and Asset Protection

Smart offices also include advanced security systems. Automated locks, camera systems, smart alarms and motion sensors ensure the security of the premises. The sensors monitor intrusions such as broken windows and immediately notify authorised personnel.

Intelligent smoke and fire alarms, water leak sensors and remote-controlled windows with rain sensors also protect the property from the elements. Jakub Mrázek of VELUX says their windows automatically close in the event of rain, eliminating the risk of flooding.
