Honeywell, a global leader in the Internet of Things, has launched a new mobile software application that allows building occupants to tap into the Internet of Things to control common building issues like temperature controls and building access.
The Honeywell Vector Occupant App has been launched this week by Honeywell Building Solutions, a part of Honeywell Home and Building Technologies, an Internet of Things company creating software and products found in more than 150 million homes and over 10 million buildings worldwide. The new app serves to solve common issues faced by building occupants, such as how to change the temperature in their particular area, or how to gain access to a building if an access card has gone missing or been left at home.
Instead, bypassing the need for access cards or key-fobs, as well as the time-consuming process of finding and speaking to the right facility manager to adjust the temperature, the new Honeywell Vector Occupant App needs only a smartphone.
“Smart phones and apps continue to enhance our everyday lives, from allowing us to hail a cab to giving us direct insight into where we stand on a restaurant waiting list,” said John Rajchert, president, Honeywell Building Solutions. “We’re now applying these same concepts of insight and control to how one interacts with a building. Buildings are alive and teeming with opportunities for users to interact with them—if you can make the right connections. The Honeywell Vector Occupant App facilitates these interactions so users can create their best experiences.”
“Occupant engagement is an increasingly important aspect of intelligent building solutions,” added Casey Talon, principal research analyst with Navigant Research, contributing to its Building Innovations program. “The smart phone app is an innovative new platform for gathering insight that can refine environmental conditions to optimize workspaces.”

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
