How can building automation help businesses?

Intelligent building automation technologies can control all business critical systems at your facility. From heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) to electricity, lighting, security, and fire.

Sensors and controls play a pivotal role in the automation of buildings. In the industrial and commercial sector the building automation concept is also known as smart buildings or intelligent buildings. The interconnectivity of devices and an intelligent way to collate, analyse, and automatically act upon insights gained are key to building automation success.

What does the future hold?

Continual improvements in technology mean the applications for building automation are expanding by the day. Commercial building owners, corporate real estate firms and facilities managers are increasingly looking to upgrade their facilities where possible to cut operational costs and improve the value of the building itself. In addition, legislation such as the upcoming Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) and others are highlight the need for efficient building stock and shining a light on the savings that businesses can make.
