Here Are The Energy-Saving Features of Conference Room Automation
Lower Your Office’s Energy-Consumption Rates In Time for the Summer
At Sound & Theater, we continually are working with local businesses here in Buffalo and all of Western New York to improve their office operations through technology.
One of the best ways to achieve that is through a customized automation solution.
With all of your technologies integrated into one system, you experience a variety of benefits – including added convenience as you control several devices from one easy-to-maneuver interface.
Another crucial benefit of a custom technology solution is increased energy-efficiency, especially within an integrated boardroom solution.
Below, we explore the technologies in our custom conference room automation solutions that can help your business lower its energy consumption – just in time for the summer.
You might not already realize it, but your window treatments play a significant role in regulating the temperature of your boardroom.
During the cold Buffalo winters, heat easily can escape through windows and cause you to spend more to keep your space warm.
Likewise, in the summer, too much sunlight can not only cause harsh glare on your boardroom screens but also unnecessarily heat up the space – forcing you to spend more to keep the area cool.
Motorized blinds play a crucial part in lowering your energy consumption. We recommend adding honeycomb shades, which feature cellular technology. These single-cell or double-cell shades are designed for insulation, keeping warm air in during the winter and retaining cold air in the summer.
Best of all, however, you can schedule your conference room’s motorized blinds to automatically lower during hours of direct sunlight. That way, you don’t have to remember to lower your shades for you to decrease your office energy bills.
Automated Technology Features
It’s entirely possible that you have experienced this scenario before: You leave the office, only to return the next day and discover the boardroom lights were left on overnight.
This situation is entirely preventable with automated lighting. And it can save your business from unnecessary energy spending.
Our custom technology installation will feature movement sensors that will be able to determine whenever your conference room is occupied or vacant.
While your boardroom is vacant, sensors will be able to then command your lights to turn off automatically – saving you from excessive energy consumption.
But it’s not just the lights that occupancy sensors can manage.
These motion sensors can command several of your boardroom’s devices to turn off during vacant hours – such as your projector, computer, or any device that accidentally might have been left on.
That’s what distinguishes a conference room automation solution from manual control. Your system will automatically work for you to optimize operations.
Energy Management Systems
At Sound & Theater, our conference room technology solutions feature remote monitoring and management – mainly so that you can track how your boardroom is consuming energy.
This is especially helpful in determining usage patterns and trends that might indicate an opportunity for your business to save additional money and spend less energy.
An energy management system or automation solution doesn’t have to be confined to your boardroom, either. You can add automation features to your whole office – even an entire building.
Our team has years of experience building customized automation systems for local businesses here in the Buffalo area. We can expertly create a solution tailored to your business’ needs.
