IoT in the Office

In today’s world, being connected is easier than ever. While some see this as a disadvantage, most people can appreciate the way technology can work in our favor to make our lives easier. In the business world, phones and laptops are no longer all you need to keep operations running smoothly. There are a number of technologies that different industries need to incorporate into their daily operations, all of which are constantly exchanging data. So, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve ever found yourself asking: Is there a way to keep all of my devices connected to the internet? Let us introduce you to IoT. 

What is IoT? 

IoT stands for Internet of Things, and it refers to all the devices around the globe that are connected to the internet and accumulate and share data. Basically, for some time now, it’s not only computers that can use internet networks. As you know, as technology evolved, more and more ‘things’ started being integrated with internet connections, and it is now possible to turn almost anything into an IoT device from something as small as a watch to something as big as an airplane.  

In offices, IoT is used for different things, but it is certain that most offices can greatly benefit from incorporating technology into their everyday use devices. Not only can IoT help with the comfort of your employees but also with efficient management. Some examples of what IoT can be used for in the office are: 

  • IoT-connected alarm systems: alarm systems that are internet-connected and can be managed from any device are a safety measure that can benefit any workplace. Just imagine getting notifications to your phone when there has been a security breach and having the ability to react in real time. Modern fire alarms can also be part of the IoT devices in your office. 
  • Safety measurements: Other safety measurements that can keep your office protected through IoT are things like surveillance cameras, smart doors and windows, and panic buttons. For example, an IoT panic button can save your life in a critical situation by having the ability to immediately call for help when you press it, all thanks to the internet.  
  • Motion light sensors: smart lights that turn on and off when sensing movement can help you save thousands in electricity bills and remove the worry of people forgetting to turn off the lights. 
  • Smart utilities: Smart utilities can make a huge difference in the comfort of your employees, who doesn’t love an internet-connected coffee machine that can let you know when it’s out of coffee? Supply control will also be easier to manage but most importantly smart devices have the ability to turn on and off through voice control or even by themselves with set timers which is a way to make anyone’s life a bit easier. 
  • Asset tracking with IoT: IoT can help you keep the things that are most important to you safe. Different industries have different needs but the gist of it is that you can attach sensors with GPS chips to your assets to keep track of their whereabouts. 

Are there any risks with using IoT technologies? 

Unfortunately, IoT devices can be hacked. This is why you must make sure the technology you decide to buy has safety measures in place to keep you and your information protected. At Master Telecom, for example, we make keeping your assets and information safe a priority.
