Occupancy and Counting

Net4 solutions keep track of how many people are in which parts of the building at any given time and can use zonal management to monitor unauthorised use of predefined areas.

Space Utilisation

Net4 uses intelligent analysis on input from your cameras to monitor use of specific desks, meeting rooms, break out areas and other facilities. As hybrid working means that more spaces are shared, it is essential to give staff confidence before they get on a train that there will be a desk waiting for them, or that they will have a suitable space available to entertain clients and visitors. Our apps and dashboards can even direct them straight to available spaces and connect to your room booking software to provide a complete picture.

Net4 solutions can recognise when desks have a laptop or belongings placed on them but are not actually in use for a significant part of the day. This tells you whether a lack of desk space is due to genuine overuse or non-compliance with hotdesking policy, saving you from costly property expansion unless it is genuinely necessary.

Non-compliance with building management and flexible working policies can make a well-designed office inefficient and unfit for purpose. By providing robust and comprehensive data across the whole of your estate, Net4 takes responsibility for compliance out of the hands of individual managers and team leaders to ensure that policies are applied consistently across the organisation so your office runs the way it was designed to.

REsponsive Space Management

Net4 technology can record the use of meeting rooms, breakout spaces and other dedicated spaces and compare size of meetings to total capacity and seating. By analysing this data over time, it can identify areas that are usually over-subscribed or utilised (or used in an unintended way) so you can repurpose or resize your spaces accordingly, resolve environmental factors that discourage occupancy and monitor the impact of restructuring or workforce changes to be sure that every part of your building is fully utilised.

Optimised Utilities and Services

Net4’s solutions can use thermostats and other sensors linked to video analytics to adapt environmental controls to room usage, saving energy to make buildings greener and more economical – or highlight times of low occupancy when those using the building could be concentrated into a smaller area to conserve energy.

As well as automatically adjusting lighting, heating, blinds and other fittings in real time to optimise energy use, Net4 technology can monitor a host of other elements to streamline building services and ensure health and safety compliance: like alerting the relevant services when bins need emptying; after a certain volume of toilet or kitchen visits; if there are spills, trip hazards or litter; if pass-activated or fire doors are left open; or any other element of interest that you request.
