Commercial building property managers are under pressure to maximize value per square foot and deliver optimal experiences for their occupants. Arm says that the Internet of Things (IoT) can help solve these challenges by providing better insights and predictability for space usage including room occupancy, resource trends and traffic patterns. Additionally, property managers can leverage the physical data insights of IoT to design energy efficient and monetizable spaces, as well as increase employee safety, productivity and engagement.

The company has announced Space Analytics as part of its Arm Pelion Smart Spaces solutions for property managers of hotels, coworking spaces and commercial buildings to see when, where and how building spaces are being utilized. Based on its Pelion IoT platform, Space Analytics securely gathers and analyzes data from off-the-shelf IoT devices (such as smart lighting, sensors, locks, IP cameras, badge readers) to deliver actionable insights and predict availability of space. Through the solution’s machine learning capabilities, Arm is able to provide actionable data insights on space and resource usage, all of which work toward driving greater efficiencies and maximizing revenue.
