In fact all those measures and controls shall be taken, together with keeping a proper level of climate in the building - temperature, humidity, lighting, pressure. I am wondering how technology will respond on all that. F.e. we check the humidity in certain room, but there is difference from desk to desk. Or temperature is different in different height levels in the room. Of course, we can solve some of those with air supply and mixing. I am wondering whether the big technologist are thinking on certain line sensors, instead of single point ones. Something, that can change colors, depending on a humidity or temperature level.

Those would be good source for energysaving.
