Intelligent Disinfection for Safer Buildings

Nexos Intelligent disinfection connects with UVC lighting, sensors, access controls, and other hardware to create an automated process to disinfect spaces safely.

Nexos Intelligent Disinfection

Using the disinfecting power of UV light technology, you can program a cycle to sterilize individual rooms or entire offices during nonbusiness hours quickly and efficiently while there is no occupancy. Give employees and others the confidence of being in a healthy environment.

Office Hours

Maintain A Healthy Environment

Nexos Intelligent Disinfection provides the ultimate peace of mind and flexibility for your space in-between occupancy. Manually engage the disinfection cycle after meetings to sanitize conference rooms before being occupied by another group, in common areas when empty, and in short increments throughout the day to maintain a safe work environment.

Occupancy Scan

Intelligent Safety Processes

Before initiating the disinfection process, Nexos determines all safety checks are met. During the occupancy scan, the Nexos Intelligent Disinfection software pulls data from occupancy sensors, people counting, and door locks to determine the space is unoccupied, ensuring the safety of your employees.

Scheduled Sanitization

Automated Disinfection Cycle

Once a space is determined to be unoccupied during the safety checks, Nexos commands the UVC lighting and other sanitizing equipment in the space to initiate the disinfection process. When the process is activated, doors are triggered to lock from the outside and exterior signals indicate that disinfection is in progress. Nexos Intelligent Disinfection automatically starts and finishes the complete sanitization of your space while ensuring the safety of all occupants within.

Real-World Applications

For the economy and life to return to normal, advanced and widespread disinfection processes are necessary.

However, UVC lighting is harmful to people, so it must be paired with intelligent controls to allow for the safe disinfection of public spaces.

Automotive

Show your employees you care by installing UVC lighting with market-leading safety precautions in your most trafficked spaces. This, combined with other safety precautions such as reduced in-office staff, can allow you to bring employees back to collaborate and work together as safely as possible. The data from the software can show you insights on how often spaces are used, whether they are exceeding the number of people allowed per room, how often disinfections occurs, and more.

Senior Living

Protect our most vulnerable loved ones by installing UVC lighting with market-leading safety precautions in any senior living space. This should be added on top of your safety precautions to add another significant layer of protection against COVID-19, influenza, pneumonia, and other communicable outbreaks. The data from the software can show how often disinfections occurs, pull data from heartbeat and temperature sensors to predict illness, and more.

Retail

Protect your customers and staff by installing UVC lighting with market-leading safety precautions in your stores. Share that you are adding this additional disinfection layer to your current cleaning procedures to restore your customer’s confidence in entering your stores. Use the data from the software to understand when to run disinfection, how often disinfections occurs, and measure adherence to capacity limits as a way of enforcing your other measures of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other pathogens.

Dental & Medical

Protect your patients and employees with safe UVC disinfection. UVC lighting sterilizes exposed spaces when used as directed, but it is dangerous to humans. Nexos software provides multiple layers of security measures that can create safe UVC lighting usage in existing spaces. The software-based controls are flexible and provide facilities the ability to see what is going on in their spaces and answer critical questions: How often are people in the space? Does it ever exceed occupancy limits? When does disinfection occur, and how often? Does the disinfection process get interrupted? This data allows hospitals to find and benefit from data-driven insights to decrease the spread of viruses and other diseases in the healthcare setting.

Education

Install UVC lighting with market-leading safety precautions in your most trafficked spaces and classrooms to prevent illness outbreaks. Run the UVC lighting overnight to fully disinfect all classrooms and spaces, and then use maintenance disinfection throughout the day when the spaces are unoccupied, such as when students are at recess, to continually sanitize spaces. Data generated from this solution can be combined with other sensor data for many insights. Use it to measure adherence to capacity limits as a way of enforcing your other measures of transmission prevention and to see how often disinfection occurs or is interrupted. Tell your students, staff, and parents about adding this disinfection layer to your current precautions to help ease concerns about returning to school.

Hospitality

Protect your guests and staff by installing UVC lighting with market-leading safety precautions in your most trafficked spaces and guest rooms. Share that you are adding this additional disinfection layer to your current cleaning procedures to restore your guests’ confidence in your brand. Use its intelligence to coordinate the disinfection of spaces so that it occurs before your normal cleaning process to protect your staff as well as guests. Use the data from the software to understand when to run disinfection, how often disinfections occurs, measure adherence to capacity limits, and more as a way of enforcing your other measures of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other pathogens.

How it Works

Using Nexos’ built-in flexibility as an IoT smart building platform, the team at Igor developed safety protocols to bring all devices together into an intelligent disinfection solution for Nexos users. Connect the hardware to Nexos – including sensors, access controls, UVC lighting, and more – and let the software run safety checks and trigger disinfection of spaces based on the requirements unique to the buildings.

Intelligent Lighting Controls Powered by PoE

Get the Best in Intelligent Lighting Technology with Igor’s PoE Lighting Application, Powered by Nexos

After decades of focusing on LED lighting for energy efficiency, attention is shifting to intelligent PoE lighting and technologies that leverage the Internet of Things (IoT). The availability of low-cost, ultra-miniature LEDs, sensors and communications protocols now makes it possible to embed Internet connectivity into every lighting fixture and most low-wattage sensors, and to do so with a low price tag. Because the entire system is powered and controlled over a standard Ethernet connection and PoE ports, network-enabled PoE devices can provide any user immediate access and building automation control over the entire system.

PoE and Intelligent Lighting Control

LEDs are already used far beyond their basic lighting function in building automation applications to indicate occupancy, adjust mood, conserve energy and remote control. Their use expands by combining intelligence with movement or ambient light sensors and interconnecting the PoE lighting nodes in a programmable network.

These intelligent lighting advancements are now impacting all areas of society. From government buildings to healthcare facilities and homes, PoE’s lighting applications are quite diverse. From providing better intelligent lighting control to asset management, major IT network providers like Cisco are providing PoE standards to enable Power over Ethernet lighting & IoT platform solutions to all industries.

PoE and Ambient Lighting

Ambient lighting in hospital rooms and on the hospital premises can influence a patient’s well-being by directly controlling the body’s circadian system or enhancing lighting for accomplishing critical visual tasks. Hospital lights that respond to sunlight outside and allow for daylight harvesting can have a serious impact on the happiness of its residents. This is becoming increasingly accepted as fact as research findings show that lighting influences the mood and perception of patients and healthcare staff which – when optimized – may contribute to improved patient outcomes.

Igor's PoE Lighting Lowers Facility Costs

Hospital and healthcare facilities managers are then put in a difficult position as they see their budgets tighten at the same time that the public demands better quality care and improved facilities. In this situation, intelligent PoE lighting is the ideal option. Igor’s PoE lighting & IoT platform works with LEDs to bring down the cost of operating the facility while improving the quality of lighting. It is the perfect solution for hospitals that have a solid but dated structure and who need to work around the regulations and ever-changing safety requirements. PoE lighting will allow for improved benefits today while setting the facility up to flexibly accommodate changes in the future. PoE technology can go further than just lighting – it can also be a platform to continue to optimize operational efficiency and safety by using sensors to alert staff to suspicious movement of people, or to dim lights that are not being used.

PoE Beyond Lighting

Hospitals and other healthcare providers are facing a massive challenge to reduce costs, improve patient outcomes, and increase staff productivity and morale. And they need to do this while demonstrating a higher commitment to environmental sustainability with a long-term vision for assets. This can feel insurmountable.
