Infosys introduces app to control AC temp for its employees

By : |June 30, 2016 0

Does it get annoyingly cold in your cubicle? If you are an Infosys employee in Mysore, you wouldn’t complain about it. The company has introduced a third-party app called Comfy to help its employees Mysuru campus to monitor and personalize workspace temperature using smartphones, laptops and desktops.

The app is based on the building management system and provides real-time access to the air conditioning system, in order to change temperature. The app is not just a dummy; it also gauges the user’s feedback to make necessary changes in the temperature. “Employees act as sensors allowing the app to save energy by eliminating over-conditioning and turning off air conditioning in unoccupied spaces,” a statement released by Infosys stated.

The move is part of Infosys’ sustainability initiatives, wherein the company implemented several measures over the last one year at its Mysore campus, including smart water meters to curtail wastage. The system is linked to the central command center for continuous monitoring of water. There are 273 smart water meters installed at the campus and some more at other campuses.

Infosys is serious about implementing energy efficiency modules, and to further that, the company has partnered with institutions such as Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley; Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore; and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay.

The company is also setting up a biogas plant at its Bengaluru campus, with a capacity of treating two tons of food waste per day. The fully-automated system is integrated with the building management system to facilitate online monitoring. To treat waste within the campus, the company has installed a compost plant with a capacity of 2.5 TPD.
