Forget about smart homes, don’t you wish you had a smart office?

Building Robotics does too. Known for its temperature control office software, Comfy, the company has raised $6.7 million in funding to make workplaces smarter.

Launched in 2013, Building Robotics landed $1.14 million in seed funding last June from investors that included Claremont Creek Ventures, Google Ventures, Formation 8, Navitas Capital, Red Swan Ventures, and Peter Rumsey. Its first product, Comfy, is a smart heating and cooling network that helps employees control workspace temperature.

Building Robotics may raise another half a million, according to a public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Within that same filing, the company lists Gary Dillabough, managing partner at the Westly Group, as a board member — suggesting that the Westly Group may have contributed to the latest round. On Building Robotics’ site, Westly Group isn’t listed as a past investor.

This new round of funding may contribute to the development of new products, though VentureBeat has yet to hear back from the company on what exactly it will use the funding for.
