It is the seamless central control of a facility’s key systems usually via a building management system (BMS) or building automation system (BAS).
Building automation is essentially a mix of hardware and software that monitors and controls a facility. A building automation system helps to manage heating, ventilation, air-conditioning (HVAC), electricity, lighting, security, fire, and mechanical systems at a property.
Implementing and maintaining building automation can transform a property into a smart building of the future. Sensors, controllers and smart devices work together to automatically manage the buildings’ key business systems.
Implementing a building automation system can save building owners money, reduce carbon, boost the environmental impact of the site, and improve the wellbeing of building occupants.
Building automation can help building owners and construction firms achieve BREEAM standards. BREEAM is the Building Research Establishment (BRE) Environmental Assessment Method. It sets best practice standards for the environmental performance of buildings through design, specification, construction, and operation. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the US equivalent.
