Use Smart Controls to Prepare for Important Business Meetings
In the midst of the hectic holidays, it can be easy to forget that making your employees, partners, and guests comfortable is important. No one wants to sit through a long meeting in a freezing cold room or have to endure the bright sunlight pouring in the windows. The audio, video, and conferencing software you use in your Orange County business is just as important as the boardroom’s other basic features—like the motorized shades, lighting, and thermostat. In this blog, we’ll explain about all of those often overlooked automated controls that can make a difference at your next meeting or event.

Motorized shades have a lot of use in your boardroom and your entire office. Solar shades will help prevent annoying glare on computer screens, overheating in your offices from those incoming UV rays, and protect your company’s furnishings since light tends to fade and age materials. In your next meeting, you’ll be able to press one button on the wall and lower all of your roller shades at the same time. This will save you precious time and protect everyone’s eyes from the bright sunlight. You can even put all of your motorized shades on a schedule so they lower at the brightest times of day and raise when your employees need a boost of energy and a lift in spirits. Sunlight definitely helps this time of year when it gets darker earlier in the evening.

It’s important to reduce costs and keep your staff comfortable at the same time, so arrange a schedule where your control system adjusts the temperature according to the weather outside or the time of day. You can also give certain employees passcodes to change the temperature so that you don’t have hundreds of people messing with the thermostat.
Automating your lighting will not only make your work environment look professional, but it will also put you ahead of the game when it comes to being on the cutting edge of business technology. Occupancy sensors will help your company save money on electricity bills. Whenever a staff member leaves a room, the lights will turn off; alternatively, when your team members enter the boardroom for a meeting, the lighting will automatically turn on to welcome them in. Dimmers are another great addition to boardrooms since they allow you to control the lighting levels for different purposes. For example, if you are getting ready to present a new project, dim the lights down so everyone can see the screen better and focus on what you have to say. Lighting controls help everyone in your business be prepared for every situation and cut down on company costs throughout the year.
