How can my building benefit from room heatmapping?

How can my building benefit from room heatmapping?

One of the latest features added to the Twinview platform is room heatmapping. This provides a range of benefits to building owners as they can visualise different data streams within their building.

What is heatmapping?

A heatmap is a graphical representation of data that depicts values by using colour. They make it easy to visualise and understand complex data. It is relatively new to the property sector and Twinview are delighted to offer the feature to its clients.

How does Twinview use room heatmapping?

Room heatmapping is one of the most exciting features on Twinview. It enables the user to generate interactive heatmaps to visualise real-time data streams within a building’s 3D model.

It currently supports temperature, lux levels and occupancy with air quality coming very soon.

Learning how heat is transferred throughout a building is key for building owners when trying to reduce costs and energy consumption. It lets the user identify trends and make more informed decisions. For example, if you see that a particular room is often hot, you could use less heating which will lower your operational costs.

Heat maps also let you see how busy a floor or room is. This gives the user valuable insights into how people are using the spaces in your building. If you find that certain spaces are underutilised, you could rent it out to third parties.

Using heatmapping for occupancy levels will allow facility managers to control crowds in the building. Many workplaces still implement COVID-19 protocols such as social distancing and heatmapping can help users to see if too many people are located in one area.

What are the benefits of room heatmapping?

  • Make more informed choices – room heatmapping provides you with all of the necessary data to make better decisions around temperature, lux levels, occupancy and air quality.
  • Reduce costs – by learning where you expend the most energy, you can work out what is unnecessary and lower your costs.
  • Improve space utilisation – by learning what spaces are used and populated the most, you can optimise it and save money.
