ThinkIoT solutions for reopening workplaces

In response to COVID-19, we have introduced a set of trusted ThinkIoT solutions that can be rapidly deployed at scale, supporting employee health and safety in the workplace, in alignment with three key steps required in reopening workplaces: controlling who gets into sites, managing behaviour within sites, and responding to incidents. And each of these solutions will continue to provide value once we get to the new normal.

Step 1: Control who gets into locations

Identify potentially sick people before they enter the location and control access to limit risk and comply with recommended policies.

Elevated Temperature Screening:

Thermal screening solutions using FDA cleared thermal cameras [510(k) K033967] to identify elevated body temperature in individuals as they go through access points.

Back to Work

Limit the risk of liability by checking for fever at the door, identify individuals for further screening and encourage self-quarantine where appropriate.

New Normal Transformation

Minimize sick days and maximize productivity by screening for seasonal flu and common illnesses. Integrate security systems to automate documentation, contact tracing and access.

Touchless Building Access:

Modern access control that allows touchless access, phone-based authentication, easy cloud management, and integrations with legacy access control systems and IoT solutions.

Back to Work

Limit touch points around the workplace with hands-free access, automate security and wellness procedures, and quickly update access from the cloud in response to incidents or policy changes.

New Normal Transformation

Enhance employee experience with frictionless access, easily manage visitor permissions, and reduce administrative overhead.

Step 2: Managing behaviors within the space

Ensure new policies are highly visible, manage occupancy and distancing inside building to reduce risks and help people feel safe.

Digital Signage and Policy Communication:

Integrated digital communication and content management solution to effectively communicate policies and information to your workforce.

Back to Work

Communicate the latest COVID-19 policies and protocols quickly and efficiently across the enterprise. Broadcast important content and dashboards using displays and employee screensavers.

New Normal Transformation

Simplify management of content across different locations to drive ongoing employee engagement and communication.

Safe Workspace Monitoring:

Office occupancy monitoring solution with granularity to a seat level, to comply with social distancing protocols and identify workspace utilization for target cleaning.

Back to Work

Regulate distancing protocols by floors, sections, and seats. Monitor clustering and compliance, then designate areas for targeted cleaning.

New Normal Transformation

Review detailed analytics to develop practical workspace plans, optimize utilization and inform corporate strategy.

Step 3: Being prepared to respond to incidents

Identify and sanitize impacted areas after incidents. Notify at-risk employees and visitors after potential exposure.

On-Premise Contact Tracing:

Employee and visitor tracing using existing Wi-Fi network to monitor workspace zone health and enable a focused response in the event of an incident.

Back to Work

Monitor workplace zone health based on the density and dwell time of visitor and employee devices. Identify areas where infected individuals previously visited and notify individuals of exposure risk even if proximity did not happen at the same time.

New Normal Transformation

Capture people flow, heat maps, and dwell trends to gain actionable intelligence. Leverage data to enhance employee and visitor experience, increase productivity, and inform workplace strategy.

Incident Dashboards:

On-demand, easy to understand insights to support rapid communication, response management, and target cleaning response.

Back to Work

Reduce the costs and time for incident response with data visualizations that support targeted sanitization of high-risk areas.

New Normal Transformation

Leverage data and insights to support future operational and productivity initiatives.

Working together, these ThinkIoT solutions can form a protective barrier around sites, creating an intelligent environment that reduces the risk of infection and transmission, and in case of an incident, alert the right people and ensure rapid cleaning and sanitation. Most importantly the employee will feel confident returning to the workplace. In addition, these solutions will help you implement the “new normal workplace transformation” plans.

Delivering the solutions you need...

In early June 2020, we conducted a survey with more than 1,000 participants in the U.S. to better understand how technology could help address the COVID-19 crisis. Here are the most important findings:


of respondents said their job shifted to remote work in response to COVID-19


of people saying they have no specific timeline to return to the workplace


say it’s important for their companies to deploy technology safety measures within their workplaces


say they feel safer with temperature screenings in place


are confident for technology solutions to quickly identify and respond to COVID-19 incidents within the workplace


are likely to implement technology solutions on their personal/work devices to promote their workplace safety
