Phidgets for Monitoring Building Performance and Occupant Behaviour

Phidgets makes a variety of sensors and controllers that connect to computers through USB. It's easy to develop applications in a variety of programming languages. As architects begin to look at green building strategies, Phidgets can be used to monitor building performance and occupant behaviour, leading to better building design and energy efficiency.
