According to Wikipedia, “Building automation describes the functionality provided by the control system of a building. A building automation system (BAS) is an example of a distributed control system. The control system is a computerized, intelligent network of electronic devices, designed to monitor and control the mechanical and lighting systems in a building.”
There are millions of blogs covering technical consumer devices, mobile smart phones and computers but I’d like to contribute with my own writings about Building Automation.
BAS core functionality keeps the building climate within a specified range, provides lighting based on an occupancy schedule, and monitors system performance and device failures and provides email and/or text notifications to building engineering staff.
Building Automation Systems are installed into large new office buildings. How about older buildings and assets? Who can tell great examples about old made better as new?
“The BAS functionality reduces building energy and maintenance costs when compared to a non-controlled building. A building controlled by a BAS is often referred to as an intelligent building system,” informs Wikipedia.
