Honeywell has announced new capabilities to the Honeywell Vector Occupant App that give building occupants more control through a mobile device.
The indoor navigation feature uses GPS-like technology to help users find their way around complex buildings that are difficult to navigate without directions.
In addition to the indoor navigation feature, the app also now includes a location-based feature to rate spaces, allowing those within a building to highlight comfort issues to building staff for quick resolution.
Both features combine the convenience of today’s mobile devices with Internet of Things (IoT) building connectivity to help improve a user’s experience inside a building, the company said.
Paolo Cervini, president, Honeywell Building Solutions, Middle East, Russia, Turkey and Africa, said: “Honeywell is a key enabler of smart buildings and smart cities, and we are committed to equipping owners, operators and facility managers with advanced technologies to make their buildings more connected.
“Smartphone usage in the Middle East is rising, with many countries here reporting some of the highest mobile penetration rates in the world. Using the Honeywell Vector Occupant App will allow occupants across the region to shape their building experiences from their smartphones in unique and innovative ways. We’re adding more features to deepen the connections between occupants and the spaces around them so they can be as comfortable as possible, and can more easily and efficiently move about in a building.”
The Honeywell Vector Occupant App works with Apple and android products.
