Back to the Office? Automation Upgrades to Boost Your Business


Increase Productivity and Morale with These Smart Technologies

Things are gradually going back to normal here in Iowa City, and businesses are inviting their teams back into the office. If your company is working in person again or will be soon, this is an excellent opportunity to dive into smart office automation.

New technologies like door access, white noise, conferencing systems, and multi-room audio enhance the way we do business. And an office automation system can sync all of your technologies into one easy-to-control interface. Learn more for your Iowa business below.

Office Automation: What Is It?

A smart system like Crestron makes it easier to manage multiple rooms, floors, buildings, or departments in your business. From one interface on touchscreens, smartphones, or remotes, you can activate lights, control the temperature, turn on white noise, and close all the blinds. Set schedules that turn on every day, so no one has to be responsible for managing the office.

Furthermore, Crestron consolidates all your room scheduling and conference technology under one platform. For instance, in Meeting Room B, you can access Microsoft Teams, turn on the projector, dim the lights, and lock the door—all from one control panel.

Technologies You Can Control

Here are some smart technology ideas to incorporate into your office automation system.

Door Access & Entry

Manage who is and isn’t allowed to enter your company. Through your Crestron smart system, you can lock doors remotely, set passcodes, and grant user permissions. Crestron is compatible with numerous access control hardware and software brands, ranging from fingerprint readers to video door stations.

White Noise

If your office is too quiet, your staff may feel awkward or uncomfortable at their desks. And any conversations will certainly be a distraction. White noise speakers, also called sound masking, can muffle voices in the distance and create a relaxing atmosphere. Conference rooms will feel more private, and you’ll eliminate distractions, creating a more productive, happier workplace.

Video Conferencing Systems

Offices have long used conferencing phones in the middle of the meeting room table. But is it time to upgrade to a video conferencing system? In your conference room, your team can meet and see remote staff, clients, and customers. An automation system can connect speakers, displays, microphones, cameras, and software, making it much more intuitive to use.

Multi-Room Audio

Bring sound to your entire building with a multi-room audio network that’s also controlled by the same Crestron smart system. Whether you’re playing white noise, background music, or making announcements over an intercom, we can install in-wall or in-ceiling speakers for a refined, minimal appearance.
