A good Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) encompassing air quality, thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics, is a cornerstone to ensure health, comfort, wellbeing and productivity of the building occupants, who spend around 90% of their time indoor. Building occupants can thus provide important feedback on how buildings perform. The way they perceive the indoor environmental conditions can affect their comfort, health, productivity.

People are increasingly testing smart control systems to curb energy use, while maximising the amount of renewables employed in the process
