OKI Web Sensing collects environment information from the office to help reduce wasteful energy use and electricity costs
OKI today announced the offering of Web Sensing, an environment information collection service, to the Japanese market starting September 17, 2009. The service measures and collects environment information from the office -temperature, humidity and electric energy usage with sensor networks, and sorts the data on a server via Internet. For this service, several devices are placed in the office to measure electric energy usage, humidity, temperature, etc., and via sensor networks, the data is measured and collected in a minimum of every ten minutes. The collected data is stored on the server, which then can produce graphs and CSVs. By gathering electric energy usage and CO2 emission data and viewing the results in a simple manner, users can easily understand the environmental impact they cause, and can help reduce wasteful energy use and electricity costs.
OKI Network Integration (OKINET), an OKI Group company in charge of network integration for triple play (convergence of voice, video and data), will be charged with offering this service to enterprise customers.
