About Smart Technology


What are smart spaces?

A smart space is defined as any environment, from vehicles, homes or office spaces to entire buildings, enabled with smart technology. Essentially, it is a ‘connected’ space where networked sensors communicate with one another in an intelligent ecosystem.

The smart ecosystem provides the user with information about how the space is operating so that the environment can be improved to function at optimal conditions. Discover more in our insight article on what is a smart space.


What is a smart workplace?

A smart workplace is one that embraces digital transformation and automation of processes. By implementing smart technology to create an engaging and enhanced office experience, a smart workplace promotes better work-life balance and improves productivity.

Access control via a dedicated smart workplace app, flexible meeting room and desk booking system, lifestyle management options, a self-serving Visitor Management System are only a few of the possibilities to make the workspace truly yours. Enabling the workplace means giving the power back to the tenant and providing a seamless experience throughout the building, not just the office space.

A smart workplace is also able to create an active and engaged community that doesn’t stop at the office space but is made of the whole building.

What is a smart building?

In a smart building, legacy systems are connected to IoT devices and sensors through a Building Operating System (BOS), effectively transforming the building into a digital service platform.

This evolution elevates building intelligence and provides a better, more efficient environment. From lighting to climate control, role-based access, space management and optimisation and more, the building becomes an eco-system of interoperating networks. The cloud-connected sensors in the building’s electrical devices feed data to a central operating system (discover more here), which can be operated through a dedicated smart app to create the ultimate user experience.

Smart building technology brings in many benefits. Some of these are sustainability-related, thanks to energy consumption management paired with predictive analytics, and wellbeing-focused, as it promotes a healthier building environment thanks to indoor air quality technology.

What is the Internet of Things?

IoT refers to the ‘internet of things’. This is a term used to describe physical devices complete with sensors or software that enables them to connect to other devices or systems over the internet e.g. a wearable exercise tracker that connects to your smartphone.

In Smart Spaces®, nearly all aspects of the built environment can be enabled with IoT technology, from lighting sensors to desk occupancy monitoring.

What is a Digital Twin?

A digital twin is a 3D replica of the building, which provides you real-time analysis, testing and actioning of the smart building systems. The platform harbours data such as CO2/VOC, noise decibels, indoor light and occupancy levels, to allow you to manage and optimise operativity performance at scale.

This gives property managers power over the entire building system life cycle and its sustainability impact.
