Get back to work with integrated technology.
As California slowly reopens, you may be heading back to the office sometime soon. To simplify your technology and enhance your workday experience, there’s no better investment for your San Francisco business than a commercial automation system. With strong networking connections and robust, integrated controls, you can streamline operations and more. Find out how you can improve your day-to-day activities by reading below.
The Need-to-Knows of Networking
In 2020, the internet is faster than ever before. However, you may not be seeing it in your San Francisco business. An outdated network drastically slows down internet speeds. Commercial systems include routers, switches, modems, wireless access points, and cables. Each is capable of high-speed connections and provides optimal results.
A modem is the internet’s gateway to your business. It connects your office’s network to the ISP’s. Modems are often built into routers, which direct the internet signal. A commercial network begins at the router and connects to internet-enabled devices through your building, from the computers to the smart shading system.
Some switches connect devices within the network. Multiple components, like in a commercial automation system, can be managed with switches.
Wireless access points are devices that connect users to Wi-Fi without connecting directly to the router. That is to say, if your business exists on multiple stories of a building, you won’t connect your iPad to a router in the basement. WAPs ensure faster speeds and more reliable connections.
Networking for Automation
A network can help enhance the speed at which your business operates. And it also offers an opportunity to improve operations with smart commercial automation. An automated system will lower energy costs, improve productivity, and simplify meetings.
With the touch of a button, you can control the lights in your space. Drop the shades when it gets too hot, or the glare gets too intense, and automatically raise the lights with the same command. A smart system takes the pressure off of your HVAC system, so you don’t have to run it as hard to regulate your office temperature.
Smart lighting can help keep your staff awake and productive throughout the day. Modern “tunable” systems automatically adjust the intensity and brightness of the lights to mimic the natural movement of the sun across the sky. Cooler tones in the morning, warmer tones in the afternoon ensure a seamless ramp up for your daily activities.
Plus, you can group multiple commands under a single button, so setting up for meetings is a breeze. With a single tap, your conference room shades will lower, the projector turns on, and you’re ready to engage your staff with the latest insights into your business operations.
