And then there’s the climate crisis. Human activity is producing CO2 emissions at a record high, and buildings currently contribute to a whopping 39% of this. The construction industry alone accounts for 60% of all materials used (that’s a staggering 400 million tonnes per annum), whilst creating a third of all waste. Simply put, buildings (and the process of building them) are bad for the planet. One thing is clear: we have to change how we design, use and adapt buildings – fast – if we’re going to win the race against climate change.
So, what’s the solution? Whilst these problems might seem mutually exclusive, they are both compounded by a lack of understanding of how space is occupied and used within buildings, and how energy is consumed. That’s where sense_ comes in.
Over the past few years we’ve been developing, testing, and developing sense_, fine-tuning it along the way. We’ve now designed a target-driven solution that truly works, and that, we believe, is going to completely change how space is used. It uses infrared sensor technology that connects via Bluetooth over a standalone network to continuously measure your space and how it is occupied. It’s not just another sensor; it comes with our 18 years’ experience and knowledge to provide you with expert insights along the way, defined by targets identified and set out by you to meet your specific business requirements – all surfaced in your easy to use dashboard within the sense_ app, so that you can adapt and optimise your building to support your team and your business goals.
It also remotes into your building’s BMS and overlays AI technology that continually evolves over time, helping to reduce your building’s energy consumption by up to 20% – saving you money whilst also reducing your impact on the planet.
There’s no doubt that these are uncertain times. But one thing is certain – we can’t continue as before. More than ever, we need an informed approach as to how we use space – one that’s sustainable and enables space to adapt to the changing world we’re living in. One that saves you money, makes your life simpler, and helps ensure you achieve specific targets. That’s why we founded sense_.
