Redwood solutions feature a unique combination of management software, sensor
hardware and structured cabling designed to make facilities and IT operations
more agile and efficient. A web-based management application controls LED light
fixtures and sensors that track motion, temperature and light. These systems
can also store the sensor data to give a more accurate depiction of how
frequently an office environment is used.

expenses, they are tailoring their work environment to better suit the needs of
