Imagine if every asset of your building — fans, doors, furniture, coffee makers, windows — contained a tiny embedded sensor that gathered simple data to determine the actual behavior of those assets.
Now imagine having systems in place that could capture this data and use it in real time to adjust behavior and signal human intervention as needed. You would then be able to analyze the accumulation of this data over time to assess structural improvements and optimize operations.
This is the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) for FM.
