Channel partners see a growing opportunity in deploying integrated building automation systems and bringing the Internet of Things into the realm of facilities management.
You may not have new equipment or VFDs (Variable Frequency Drives) on every motor, but there are likely still savings that you could drive with a new automation system.
College and university campus buildings have a lot going on—classes, research, dining, and sleeping. Building automation systems must be carefully specified to control the systems within these buildings.
Hospital and health care facility projects are especially important due to their sensitive nature. Engineers chime in on building automation systems (BAS), building management systems (BMS), and controls.
Many would say building automation technology has paved the way for numerous changes in the way structures are monitored and maintained during their lifecycles. Among those changes is the way a building’s energy use is tracked, and subsequently adjusted to make it more green and cost-efficient. As time goes on, such practices may become more common.
M2M technology is all about connecting sensors and devices of all types — the basis of the Internet of Things — in order to provide a wealth of data and communication, allowing for an endless number of results: alerts for building managers about specific pieces of equipment that need repairs, custom notifications to people when buses they plan to take are about to arrive, and other connections that are only possible when things speak to each another.
