You’d probably know already that choosing MagicINFO and Samsung smart signage devices with a built-in player is a cost effective solution. Simply because you have less hardware to mount, to maintain and to replace when it is not working anymore.  But did you know that a signage display with a player built-in is also ECO friendly and less energy needed?  The usage is not more than 115W with a 55 inch display. That surely reduces end-of-month energy bills when you compare it to the ones with external players. But there are more things that you can do to be smart with energy usage. In this blog we give you 4 tips! 

Tip 1 Timer settings

When does the device need to be switched on and off? By setting the timers of your display correctly you can reduce the hours of use and save energy. You can choose to manually change the timer settings within the display or use MagicINFO for doing that remotely and even give more displays the right settings all at once.

Tip 2 Holiday management

Did you know that by using Holiday management you can save on energy costs? When you know that nobody is in the building for a longer period of time, you can use Holiday Management. You can choose the dates that everybody is enjoying their free time and when your public is back again, the displays will pick up publishing your content just where it stopped and will work according to the regular timer settings again.  

Tip 3 Use a sensor

When you know that there’s not always public in the area where your display is, but the information is needed when there is, you can choose to add a sensor to the network. Based on the sensor the display can switch on and show the content and when there’s nobody to watch, it will be off.

Tip 4 Think multi purpose

Spend some time on the questions, when, to whom and where? When lunchtime is over there’s no need to show the menu when nobody is in the restaurant. And however it’s all depending on the goal you have with signage, having a closer look into the schedule and the location of the device, rethinking the need for it during the day, can give you some new insights. It all comes down to how less time the display is switched on, the more energy saved. Knowing where your audience is, what displays are business critical and using MagicINFO that gives you the ability to be as flexible with the operational hours of your devices, you can be smart with energy usage.
