Enlighted Adds Workplace Contact Tracing Application to its Building IoT Platform

  • The new workplace digital contact tracing app Safe puts data-privacy first.
  • Enlighted’s suite of safer workplace solutions assists in reducing the spread of infection.
  • Enlighted’s broader building IoT platform helps companies master future challenges in addition to making workplaces safer during the pandemic.

Sunnyvale, Calif. – July 16, 2020 – Enlighted, a Siemens company and the leading building IoT platform provider, expands its award-winning IoT technology with workplace digital contact tracing to help employees return safely to manufacturing facilities, pharmaceutical labs, offices and more. Safe provides digital contact history for employees who self-report testing positive for COVID-19 to help reduce the spread of infection, keep healthy employees safe and productive, and eliminate the tedious, expensive and error-prone manual contact tracing process for employers.

The solution prioritizes data privacy without the need for storing personal information. Employees are assigned alphanumeric ID badges while entering the workplace. When an employee self-reports their badge ID and a positive test result, administrators query the Safe application, identify other IDs this badge came in contact with and share the anonymous IDs. Employees carrying those badge IDs can self-identify their exposure.

The Enlighted solution provides employers with location and proximity data to identify who an infected employee came in contact with inside the workplace, for how long and what areas they visited. The data is used to inform employees who might be at risk of infection and also drives sanitization efforts in areas the infected employee utilized. The application’s dashboard provides information on contacts in the building to assist management in developing safer workplace strategies. Additionally, Safe identifies how many close contacts are happening in a time period and location to proactively manage risk.

Enlighted is in a unique position to provide proven safer workplace solutions for COVID-19 and beyond with its IoT technology already installed in 320 million square feet of buildings globally. Existing customers can simply add the Safe app to their IoT platform. New customers can install the Enlighted IoT system through sensors in LED lighting or through the new USB-powered surface sensor, which can be easily applied under desks or in conference rooms.

“The important role of IoT technology in buildings has been further magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Stefan Schwab, CEO of Enlighted, a Siemens company. “The Enlighted sensory system can now provide digital contact tracing. It also lays the foundation for future-proofed buildings ready to help us understand with real-time data the changing nature of our at-work experiences and meet challenges beyond COVID-19.”

Enlighted offers a suite of data-driven safer workplace solutions, assisting planners in preparing and executing physical distancing processes, enhanced sanitization and monitoring, occupancy limits and now contact tracing. The IoT platform also integrates through APIs with third-party systems to provide touchless entry, smart desk hoteling, conference room booking and more.

The Safe application is available immediately for new and existing Enlighted customers.
