    Signify’s Interact Office helps businesses keep employees healthy in the workplace

    May 28, 2020


    Somerset, New Jersey – Keeping employees healthy is a major workplace concern. Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced it has optimized features in its Interact Office software applications (Space management and Workspace app) to help businesses and employees with physical distancing measures. By using the Interact software applications, powered by connected lighting infrastructure, building managers can plan and make critical, spacing decisions based on data rather than assumptions.


    Signify’s Interact Office Workspace app enables companies to use their connected lighting infrastructure for indoor navigation. It can guide employees to uncrowded areas of the building and enable them to reserve a desk in a space based on an acceptable occupancy level, while maintaining physical distancing.


    The Space management application provides data insights that enable building managers to make informed decisions about how to best manage their space. The application effectively monitors real-time occupancy data, allowing building managers to identify the most densely populated areas in the building and set occupancy limitations. Data collected from the Interact connected lighting system can also identify any high-traffic areas, so they can be cleaned more frequently.


    Signify is committed to protecting employee health and well-being. The company will introduce new IoT sensors with Environmental monitoring capabilities – including monitoring temperature, air quality, noise levels, daylight levels and relative humidity – in North America in Q4 2020. This will further enable businesses to monitor their office environment and optimize conditions for employees.


    Interact Indoor navigation

    Interact Indoor navigation enables a mobile application to access real-time and accurate indoor geo-location of a mobile device via lighting. The software can use several technologies such as Visible Light Communication (VLC) and Bluetooth-Low-Energy (BLE) in the luminaires and phone sensors to determine the location and direction of travel of the device with 30 cm./1 ft. accuracy.


    By integrating the Indoor navigation kiosk or the Interact Office Workspace app with meeting room booking systems or employee directory management solutions, employees can easily book a meeting room, find a free desk or locate a colleague. Facility managers can use the anonymized data on employee movement flows and behavior to further optimize and improve their employee services and building operations.
