Do you dream of having a smart home? It may seem surreal, but today we have the technology to almost completely automate a home. Are you interested in integrating technology, but concerned about how it will impact your home’s aesthetic appeal? Not to worry- you can have a functional, stylish home that incorporates the latest in intelligent technology while maintaining visually appealing interior design.
First, decide what elements of technology you want to include. The term “intelligent home” means different things to different people, and what the term encompasses for you is a personal choice. For instance, twenty years ago exterior light timers seemed “high-tech,” but today, those are fairly common. You probably already have an internet connection, and some of the other technological elements you may want to consider include:
- Automated lighting and temperature control
- Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other communication protocols
- Home security and safety systems
- Entertainment systems controlled by computer, phone, or tablet
- Appliances that can communicate with each other

The digital signage market has taken off, and with good reason: digital technology offers innovative, interactive options to improve your branding and increase your business’s visibility.
You’ve certainly seen examples of companies using digital signage to boost their brands.

Additionally, interactive kiosks are useful in reducing wait time and boosting sales. How can you best use digital signage to help your business?
- Keep it simple. While technology is complicated, your digital signage shouldn’t be. Keep your branding consistent, and don’t try to incorporate too many technological aspects at once. The beauty of digital signage is that you can change your message and use eye-catching imagery. To do this effectively, though, you’ll want to keep your branding instantly recognizable.
- Don’t limit your location. Having digital signage at your brick and mortar store is effective, but what’s even more impactful is allowing customers 24-hour access to your technology. Installing a unit somewhere away from your location…
Video conferencing has become an essential part of intelligent office design, thanks to new technology. Today’s modern office offers complete control over lighting, sound, conferencing, and other elements with a single app. For some companies, the concept of seamless video conferencing may generate more questions than answers, and for good reason; there is a lot to know.
What Is Video Conferencing?
Video conferencing is a way for business colleagues to communicate using both voice and video, from anywhere in the world in real time. This is done via a computer network, over which audio and video data is transferred.
Benefits of Video Conferencing Technology
There are several advantages for companies who are thinking about using video conferencing technology, time and money savings being at the top of the list. Colleagues needing to meet don’t have to incur travel costs to visit your office, nor do they have to incur additional costs to reach you on the phone.

Intelligent office design is more than about gadgets and unified controls. Nonetheless, these are important, and what TVTI offers will be discussed in more detail later.
How do you plan today’s intelligent office? That is what we will focus on here, plus the trends and products of the day that will help you maximize the functionality and versatility of your office, no matter what industry it serves.
Planning for Intelligent Office Design
Financial success is often the primary objective for companies. Many have traditionally created and encouraged a high-pressure work environment that can take its toll, but more than a few are now realizing the perks of addressing the needs of employees. Organizations that lack employee engagement, according to statistics compiled by Harvard Business Review, see:
- 18% lower productivity
- 16% lower profitability
- 37% less job growth
- 37% higher absenteeism
Workplace stress has a major impact on employee health. The publication also noted that high-pressure employers spend 50% more on healthcare expenditures, 80% of doctor visits are…
Digital signage has many advantages over traditional advertising. It’s by far the most effective way to reach customers, enabling a recall rate of 83% and an ability to capture 400% more views than a static message, according to research by Digital Signage Today. People do take interest in a topic advertised using digital media. The study also found 59% of those who saw a message digitally were eager to learn more about it.1
So, how does this translate for your business? Digital advertising doesn’t only save you money by avoiding print materials and equipment and the manpower needed to procure, operate, and maintain them. It is highly effective at driving retention and sales.
How Digital Signage Helps Business
The technology helps you stay in the game and in line with competitors. It saves time and resources, compared to printing, and it is great for attracting attention. You have full control over what to display to customers, who may be intrigued by the entertainment and interactivity, while your sales and customer service personnel handle other important tasks. Therefore, a company can focus on catering to what consumers expect from digital advertising.
