New Work & Covid-19: Making offices and workplaces future-proof (Condair)

Practical guide: Future-proofing offices and workplaces

Our working world is in a state of upheaval. The coronavirus crisis has further fueled this development. Flexible working models, a “healthy” indoor climate and ecologically sustainable building operation are no longer issues for the future. They are already specific requirements for employers, facility managers and real estate owners.

If you act blind in this situation, recognize changes too late and chase trends, you have almost lost. Only those who help shape developments at an early stage, make fact-based decisions and analyse the measures taken in detail can actively shape them. The necessary database can be easily created with the LineMetrics sensor data platform. Existing areas can be retrofitted wirelessly and without an IT network.


  • Changed use of expensive office space
  • Employee health and productivity
  • Infection risks unsettle employees
  • Data and facts for planning measures, e.g. air humidification, are missing

Sensor data as the basis for future-proof offices and workplaces

Sensors and gateways with wireless connection

The LineMetrics platform includes wireless sensors for 50+ applications as well as gateways for easy data transfer via mobile radio.

Evaluation, alerting and documentation

Measurement data is stored and analyzed in the LineMetrics Cloud or integrated into any system (API).


Creating transparency and seamless documentation

Analyze the long-term development of land use, humidity and CO2 values. Evaluate the effects of measures in a targeted manner.


Receive warning messages for critical values

Receive messages when certain values are exceeded or not reached so that appropriate measures can be taken immediately.

Easy retrofitting without cables and network

One wireless gateway is often sufficient for the entire building. Data is sent to the cloud via mobile radio. Cables, IT and network are not necessary.

Secure jobs for just a few euros a month

24/7 monitoring with critical value alerts at a fixed monthly price: from €9 per month per room, all inclusive, without investment costs.

Increase well-being and productivity

When it comes to optimizing building operations, many people first think of functioning services and reduced operating costs. However, according to JLL, the greatest leverage lies with the employees: their costs amount to around €300 per square meter (rent €30, utilities at €3).

The indoor climate has a massive impact on well-being and health and must therefore be actively designed. This requires data and facts. This makes it possible to optimize heating, cooling, ventilation and air humidification.

Reduce the risk of infection

Aerosols (airborne particles) can be contaminated with viruses and pose a risk of infection (e.g. Covid-19). According to the German Federal Environment Agency, CO2 sensors can significantly reduce this risk by providing targeted ventilation at critical levels. Humidity also plays a key role: values between 40 and 60% reduce the survival time of viruses and their floating time and support the immune system.

LineMetrics makes it easy to monitor the indoor climate at any point in the building. This is the basis for targeted measures, especially for air humidification systems, and for monitoring their success.


Using expensive office space more efficiently

New working time models, home office and desk sharing are becoming increasingly popular. Periods of higher occupancy alternate with rooms that are vacant for longer periods. But facts and figures are usually missing.

LineMetrics makes it possible to record actual building usage: wireless sensors record movements in a room anonymously. This makes the actual space requirements transparent, expansions and conversions can be better planned and meeting rooms can be used more efficiently.

Only clean used surfaces

Building cleaning is the second largest cost factor in building operations and is usually carried out at fixed intervals – without taking into account actual usage. This causes unnecessary costs, especially when cleaning is intensified due to Covid-19.

While parts of the building are used intensively, other areas are hardly used at all. This data can now be incorporated into cleaning planning: All types of cleaning, from maintenance and basic cleaning to disinfection, can be planned individually – and thus reduced or adapted as required.
