Improve employee wellness while reducing energy costs
What are environmental sensors?
Environmental sensors monitor temperature, humidity, light, noise, air pressure, and air quality in a workspace.
FM:Systems’ Workplace Occupancy & Environmental Sensor platform unifies occupancy and environmental data to provide organizations with the information needed to make educated and cost-effective decisions about their workplace. Our environmental sensors identify energy consumption and wellness risks revealing opportunities to reduce costs, eliminate waste, and improve the employee experience.

Creating a Productive Work Environment
With real-time environmental data, you can automate energy usage, identify areas of over-consumption, and support employee health and comfort by monitoring environmental factors to meet LEED and WELL Building standards. Visibility to environmental factors such as temperature and noise help employees choose a workspace that suits their work style and current task, improving employee productivity and satisfaction.
- Environmental sensors monitor temperature, humidity, light, noise, air pressure, and air quality
- Option to connect to Building Management (BMS) or Building Automation Systems (BAS) for automated, on demand energy delivery
- Anonymous and unobtrusive
- FCC/CE certified with options for global expansion
- Network independent, so no IT involvement required
Increase Energy Efficiency & Reduce Energy Costs
Employee Wellness, Comfort and Productivity
With access to real-time, objective data on key environmental factors, you can dramatically improve the overall comfort and wellness of your employees while simultaneously boosting their performance.
The importance of CO2 Concentrations
Healthy CO2 concentrations for an occupied indoor space falls in the range of 350-1,000 parts per million (ppm). CO2 concentrations over 1,000 ppm may cause drowsiness and headaches leading to poor concentration and loss of attention.
Humidity and Increased Sick Days
Low-humidity work environments increase employee susceptibility to colds and other respiratory illnesses. High quality indoor air should have a humidity between 30% and 60%.
Workspaces are often too bright
A study conducted by the American Society of Interior Designers showed that 68% of employees were dissatisfied about the lighting situation in their offices. An illuminance between 500 and 1000 Lux for a computer workstation is considered ideal. Replacing overhead lights with task lights closer to desks can reduce energy consumption by 67%.
