Latest Technology for Monitoring Dirty/Unsafe Air During a Water Loss
Microshare

The advent of low-cost, long-battery life Internet of Things (IoT) sensors has opened a new era in facilities management, revealing building performance, sustainability and expense data that the industry could only guess at. Our deployments across thousands of rooms in a dozen global FM companies are transforming staffing, energy and security costs even as this new data provides new safety and maintenance capabilities. Desk and room occupancy sensors identify wasted square footage; predictive cleaning and maintenance sensors save time and man-hours that are better spent on more complex issues. Water sensors identify leaks and warn about risks like Legionnaire’s Disease, just as our refrigeration sensors ensure against hidden spoilage. From waste management to air quality to foot traffic, our solutions convert your inert, brick-and-mortar buildings into living, breathing entities complete with vital signs that can be read, compiled and audited. Knowledge is power. Powering transformative change in a modern facility or across a complex real estate portfolio means collecting data that turns guesstimates into decisions driven by precise, real-time metrics. Microshare offers a solutions-based approach to this challenge.
