Customer challenge

 

Cisco needed a lighting solution for their four-story office that would match its modern and intelligent workspace. The goal was to install a system that would optimize building operational performance, space utilization and allow employees to achieve maximum comfort at their desks.

The right system

 

Cisco elected to implement InterAct Office, a smart connected lighting system.

 

The connected luminaires include IoT sensors that provide easy access to data, energy savings, sustainability, and personal comfort. Each luminaire can be uniquely identified by IP address, allowing them to be individually monitored and controlled, with data managed via a centrally hosted software dashboard.

 

The data received allows managers to track occupancy patterns, changes in temperature, and more while employees can personalise the lighting in their workspaces. Overall, the system offers maximum visibility and better control, and allows Cisco to reduce energy consumption and improve space efficiency at Waterpark Place.

 

With an expected annual energy savings of 177,000 kWh and an annual cost savings of $45,000, the system is set to provide payback within 3 years. The building has been recognized as the most innovative workplace by CoreNet, an event that awards and recognizes real estate practices. Waterpark Place is just a glimpse into the kinds of office environments Philips and Cisco will bring to professional buildings around the world.
