Further benefits

Helvar Insights

Occupancy insights

Occupancy Insights can help you to optimise your building space by calculating the utilisation factor of your building, different space types and individual areas. 
Data is presented in an easy-to-read dashboard and uses the sensors already in the Helvar lighting control system, meaning no need for additional IoT devices. 
The intelligence of Occupancy Insights transforms movement sensor data into useable utilisation factor insights that will help you optimise your space to suit new ways of working. 
Remote monitoring

Lighting Energy Monitoring

Helvar Insights monitors energy use from your Helvar lighting control system. The simple dashboard allows you to analyse lighting energy usage in the whole building and space types, such as, meeting rooms or in single spaces.
Energy monitoring brings awareness, highlights areas for improvement and allows you to confirm that energy-saving projects are achieving their goals by providing the data to back up the return on investment. It can also help with energy efficiency certification and ESG reporting. 

Rock-solid security

Is it safe to connect your site? Absolutely.
From collection to storage, all your data is fully encrypted.
Helvar Insights uses AWS, built to satisfy the security requirements of military, banking and highly sensitive organisations.

Helvar Insights in action

Ramboll Case Study

Helvar Insights installed at Ramboll head office in Espoo, Finland. With the collection of occupancy data among other things, Ramboll can understand how their building is being used in line with their smart building ambition.

Hospital Nova Case Study

With Helvar Insights, Hospital Nova can analyse their occupancy data created by the sensors in every space of their building and turn that into an understanding of how their building is used.

Fastems Case Study

Fastems wanted to collect data about how their building is being used. The building benefits from Helvar Insights, allowing Fastems to review and adapt the usage of their space by analysing data from the Helvar sensor network.
