The Building Robotics 'Comfy' App Helps Office Workers Control Temperature

Oakland-based start-up company 'Building Robotics' came up with a clever way to personalize office temperatures. Office buildings usually come with a central cooling system and installed thermostats that are actually fake to prevent workers from fighting over the temperature settings.

The 'Comfy' app solves the office debate between "too hot" and "too cold" by letting employees control the air that is headed towards their office space. It works by connecting to the existing air controls and it will stream a blast of cool or warm air their way depending on what they input into the app.

Over time, the comfy app even learns and adapts to their preferred temperature at certain times of the day. It is the perfect software because it allows a more positive and comfortable workplace environment.
