Large organizations, construction companies, real estate (RE) agencies, Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) and Facilities Management Professionals (FMs), are all seeking for new innovative and cost effective technologies to enhance the building environment. Lighting Control in commercial spaces is always performed at the cost of personal comfort. Traditional control methods and systems require a lot of expert calibration and most often lengthy on site audits and surveys to effectively manage all individual space requirements and appropriately define lighting control strategies.
Grindrop introduces an innovative end-to-end solution which understands user lighting preferences and creates optimal lighting conditions for user comfort. The physical interface of DOME, a desktop device, constantly collects information about ambient conditions and user interventions to adjust them to his liking. Building a model of user comfort that fully encapsulates user comfort, the system effectively automates the calibration and auditing processes and eliminates one of the major shortcomings of conventional lighting control systems. DOME delivers personalized comfortable lighting without installation hassles.
With DOME the Facility Manager can automatically deploy and fine-tune multi-layered and flexible building control strategies. DOME consists in dynamic agents that handle, monitor and control each separate office space. These agents (Domes) follow and discover individual office lighting preferences by simply sensing day to day office lighting operations and environment. All office Domes can then participate in an orchestrated building control strategy. They continuously sense the environment and adjust lights accordingly, always prioritizing on personal preferences. The facility manager can initiate any global building control strategy prioritizing on comfort or savings or a combination of both, and simply deploy this strategy with the assistance of Domes. In turn, Domes automatically adopt this strategy and establish an optimal balance between global control and individual office needs. Facility management becomes more automated and flexible, combining different office strategies into a unified coordinated framework.
"With DOME employees get full ownership and control over their personal space without any extra effort. DOME discretely and continuously observes and learns from people’s actions and eventually acts on their behalf, safeguarding their preferences. People do not even realize DOME's presence. Their offices become stimulating living workplaces!"
