IocTober Day 29 - bluetooth environmental satisfaction survey

“Is it cold in here? It always feels cold in here”.

Arguments over the thermostat are endemic in some offices. It doesn’t help that most heating venting and air conditioning (HVAC) technology is largely unchanged since the stone age.

Let’s settle the matter. Here’s a temperature/humidity sensor that also offers two touch buttons to answer the subjective questions “are you too hot” and “are you too cold”.

Situate these around your workpalce, and use the collected data to find out if you really have a problem with your environmental controls and your team’s satisfaction levels.

If you call a HVAC engineer they are just going to wander about with a probe and take some measurements, you can do a MUCH more thorough job yourself and save money in the process.
