The impact of COVID-19 has made working from home normal instead of the outlier it used to be. Many building managers are managing facilities that are only partially occupied or empty. How do they work from home? Digital Insurance brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Prevent business interruptions and protect understaffed facilities with IoT.”
With the need to maintain business operations, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a useful tool for building managers to protect understaffed facilities and prevent business interruptions.
The IoT is the network of physical devices and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, etc., which enables these objects to connect and exchange data, setting the stage for a perfect application in skeleton crew building staff.
By disrupting long-established business models and offering significant new opportunities to improve the efficiency of buildings in this new normal, the IoT can improve efficiency of all resources.
