The internet of things has taken the world by storm! Computers, phones, printers, vehicles, coffee machines and other appliances will all be interconnected and smarter than ever. Machines will soon know all of our preferences on a personal level. Gartner suggests that by 2020, 25 billion ‘things’ will be connected to each other. Another projection by IDC sees 1 trillion networked devices hooked up worldwide by 2025.
The modern office space will evolve drastically over the next decade. Millennials have been born into a generation of hyper connected consumer devices and they have adapted quickly to the life changing convenience that the Internet of Things offers. Millennials are predicted to make up at least 75% of the overall workforce by 2020. Its quiet obvious, that all workplaces need to learn and adapt to the needs and preferences of the next-gen workforce.
Imagine you get to work and you enter the office without stopping at the door to wave an Identity Card.
You find that your work station is set to a temperature of your preference and the lighting keeps you calm and relaxed.
You are scheduled to be at a meeting at 11 and when you get there, coffee machines have already brewed coffee for everyone, the projection systems have already set themselves up and the attendees are ready to talk business right away.
It’s not magic, it’s Bluetooth…
Beacon based Bluetooth technology works through card Beacons that communicate with a Beacon Gateway, for information to be sent to a server.
A beacon is quite similar to RFID, but the device is considerably cheaper than RFID. The Bluetooth beacon runs on WIFI and can connect to smart phones. Beacon based mobile apps are gaining popularity quiet quickly.
A smart office that uses beacon based Bluetooth technology can visibly see a rise in quality of operations, security, asset management, sustainability and well-being through enhanced ambiences and improved quality of work spaces. The transformation will be all about convenience and personalization.
One of the biggest benefits of the beacon tracking system is that it can track an employees work and movement patterns.
A dull or overworked employee will get a suggestion to leave their work station and move around the office. You can also find out which areas of the office employees visit more often and you can get a heat map of the employees’ movement patterns. This helps in studying analytics on employee movements. You can easily track attendance as well.
