What is a smart building?

Your organization is built around progress and growth. We believe that your facilities should be as hard working as you are. They should be autonomous, lean, smart, they should carry your DNA.

It is time to expect more – hold your facilities to a higher standard. Technology has delivered the world to a 3” x 6” phone in our pocket, it has made our homes smarter, our cars smarter, and our people smarter.

Can we say the same about our buildings? So what? Why does this matter?

We are obsessed with optimizing performance and finding cost savings at home, work or school, but we often ignore the very walls around us. By making the initial investment in future proofing the buildings we spend our lives in, we can “feed the pig”, dial up productivity, and save the leaves. Your facility doesn’t have to be a drain on the bottom line.

It’s time to put your building to work.

We are building a world that's safer and more secure, more comfortable and energy efficient, more innovative and productive. We are Honeywell.
