New IoT platform service from Acuity Brands
By Ellen Cools
November 8, 2017 — Acuity Brands Inc. has released an Internet of Things (IoT) platform service called Atrius Spaces, which helps customers manage space utilization using a building’s occupancy data.
The service converts occupancy data available from the Atrius Sensory Network (through nLight lighting controls from Acuity Brands) into a “value-added building and business solution”. The Atrius Spaces web application visually represents real-time usage of spaces and provides metrics based on historical data that identifies peak and average space utilization and types of spaces used within one or multiple buildings.
Additionally, the platform service features an API that allows developers to integrate the service with existing customer tools and dashboards or create different applications. The Atrius framework delivers connectivity and intelligence to a space via a network of smart LED lighting and controls, and a software platform that gathers, unlocks and transforms raw data to enable a range of software solutions.
