Crowdsourced Thermostat Adjusts Temperature Based On People’s Comfort Levels
Crowd Comfort makes building management more tailored.
Keeping a building cool in the summer, and warm in the winter, isn’t all about efficiency, it’s also about the personal preferences of the people inside. Crowd Comfort is the world’s first crowdsourced thermostat, which asks people to rate their comfort level, and then combines all the data to figure out the best temperature for each floor.
Eric Graham, Crowd Comfort’s co-founder and CEO, explained to FastCoExist that it’s the “human side of the equation.” It’s an often overlooked aspect of building management, “Sometimes, there’s a disconnect and data management problem with the occupants of the building,” says Graham.
