Introducing Apps for Buildings and Room Phone

Alex Serriere

We spend a lot of time thinking about and designing for the future of buildings: how people interact with them, the rapidly changing technology that permeates them, and the infrastructure to support interaction with those technologies. Today, we’re pleased to announce that we’re taking a few baby steps towards inventing the future of buildings.

Apps for Buildings is TEECOM’s foray into the product side of technology for buildings. On the infrastructure side, we’re constantly pushing our clients to look ahead and make choices that will allow for maximum flexibility in the future. But for quite some time, we’ve felt that there exists a significant opportunity to push the state of the art forward on the interface side of things as well.

Room Phone is exactly the kind of push forward we intend to promote with Apps for Buildings. For frequent users of conference room dialing systems, Room Phone eliminates the awkwardness of trying to find a contact on your personal phone and entering it into a dial pad that controls the in-room system. Rather than relying on that single control panel that resides on the credenza, Room Phone puts conference call control at your fingertips. Best of all, Room Phone is available for free on the App Store. For more information about Room Phone and the conference room phone systems it supports, visit the Room Phone web page.

We hope you’re as excited about Apps for Buildings as we are. To receive notifications about Apps for Buildings, please click here.
