Osram and mantro present sensor for efficient building management


The Munich-based company builder mantro GmbH and the high-tech company Osram present their jointly developed product VISN for the analysis and optimised utilisation of office space. Visitors to the Expo Real real estate trade fair can get to know the combination of intelligent hardware and software for efficient building management from 08. – 10. October in Munich.

The VISN sensors and software were developed to make office building management more effective and up-to-date. VISN is fully compatible to Osram‘s recently launched Lightelligence platform and can therefore be fully integrated into other solutions on the platform. Working is no longer static - more and more companies are opting for flexible workplaces and times. This is accompanied by greater complexity when booking meeting rooms and office space. VISN uses permanently installed room sensors to detect the occupancy of office space in real time. With the browser-based dashboard, employees can immediately recognize which rooms are available or occupied. All persons in the room remain completely anonymous. For facility management, it is also possible to evaluate the number of people present and the periods of use. With the help of this analysis, buildings can be occupied much more efficiently in the long term, which can contribute to savings in heating and cleaning costs, among other things.  

Recently, CITUS, a property management company from Lithuania, was acquired as a pilot customer for VISN. A total of 250 square meters of the company's managed areas have already been provided with VISN sensors. "Participating in the VISN development process was a fantastic opportunity. It is a great system, easy to set up and visually appealing. It is really exciting to see how VISN implements innovations in the property industry with state-of-the-art technology," says Rytas Stalnionis, Head of Communication at CITUS. Technopolis, an office space management company from Lithuania, is also one of VISN's pilot customers. The company already uses the product on an area of 400 square meters.    

At this year's Expo Real in Munich, Europe's most important B2B trade fair for the entire property sector, VISN hardware and software will be presented, as well as space analysis in everyday life. The VISN team can be found in Hall A1, Stand 134.
