Technological advances have affected everything from our cars to coffee machines. Trend is smart devices, phones and grids and smart buildings are already beginning to take shape to fit into the new paradigm.
The volume of information stored, communicated and manufactured in modern buildings is tremendous, and smart buildings are trying to connect all of the machines and passengers to the grid of smart building data and trying to reconnect. Connect and control systems and equipment to lead to more efficient living while minimizing the impact on the environment and the cost of self-construction.
Controls can include doors and access in rooms, lighting, power, air conditioning and quality, security, hygiene, and more. All combine to be a powerful and effective building.
Just like every progressive building, smart offers various advantages and disadvantages. The main benefit is the impact on the cost of ownership and building operations. The building is designed to learn the patterns and costs of system volatility, each participating in day-to-day activities. Buildings can be learned when passengers drop and turn off lights, control air conditioning and unnecessary assets that are needed only to make people more comfortable in certain locations of the building.
