Description What is the internet of things? This briefing note sets out to say what it is, what it means for the office sector now and what is likely to mean for offices in the long term.

Low cost technology has been developed to enable the internet of things to operate. Many features of the internet of things already exist and are used within buildings, it will simply make them ubiquitous. In the longer term it will mean that systems will make intelligent ‘decisions’ based on their physical and temporal location and function.
