Internet of things (IoT) sensors collect and deliver data to keep tabs on how employee health and well-being is in an office as well as setting the best lighting and temperature conditions for the office setting.

Signify has introduced a new IoT sensor bundle that offers connected lighting to ensure the right work environment, while also keeping tabs on occupancy, temperature, noise levels, daylight levels and relative humidity. The sensors are Bluetooth enabled for indoor positioning and navigation capabilities.

Bundling these capabilities into one unit eliminates the need for multiple sensors, saving businesses money, helping offices create a healthy place to work and reducing absenteeism, Signify said.

The sensor stack is smaller than a match box and can be upgraded on premises with a swap via an upgradable sensor slot in the Philips professional office luminaires. Signify said there is no need to take the luminaires out of the ceiling as the sensor can be fitted to the front of the lighting unit.
