PoE Solutions for Apartment and Multi-Tenant Buildings

The apartment marketplace is becoming highly competitive. It is important for apartment owners to keep their spaces attractive and affordable, yet they desperately need to preserve, if not increase, their margins. It takes a lot of energy just to keep the lights on and the temperatures right. For owners/property management firms to continue providing quality space to their tenants free of unnecessary cost and hassle, energy efficiency and utility consumption management need to be a priority.

Igor’s intelligent PoE lighting upgrades will make a considerable impact on building costs and building efficiencies. This integrated approach permits usage optimizations based on the occupancy data reported by the intelligent sensors. Igor’s platform provides direct API access for setup, control and real-time data streams from embedded sensors and analytics. This delivers a simple dashboard containing information on energy savings, space utilization, security and more.

The ultimate goals with any apartment or living complex upgrade to PoE lighting systems are that the resident life can continue with minimal disruptions during the installation and that it improves the quality of life of the residents afterward. Igor’s PoE lighting system meets both requirements. Installing the system can be done in increments and is up and running immediately after configuration. In total, the PoE installation takes significantly less time than traditional electrical lighting renovations.

The end result of an Igor intelligent PoE lighting system is one that improves the bottom line for the building owners and the day to day life of its residents. Residents benefit from improved safety features, including emergency lighting capabilities, to ensure that designated areas never fall below a set lighting threshold. Additionally, using LED-compatible lights, the PoE system can control the warmth and coolness factors in a light. This is called tunable white light, and it can be programmed to the optimal level for human comfort in the areas designated for those controls.
