Is your facility efficient and functional? How efficient is your facility? It’s a common ignorance that the building is functional and there aren’t any visible signs of trouble, so why alter or bring in some changes as it would be unnecessary expenses. But, you’re mistaken.
While these concerns are considerable, you’re missing out on the cost-saving benefits and optimisation opportunities of a smart building. IoT is the future, and it’s revolutionising the building operations, including residential properties. There’s a lot more in IoT implementation for building automation system than a simple upgrade. It’s about the improper insights into the various aspects of the intuitive, holistic, and proactive facility.
So, how is IoT changing the automated building process?
Greater Energy Savings
Energy efficiency is the foremost incentive of implanting a building automation control systems, and IoT technologies can help do that hassle-freely. Gone are the days when HVAC equipment has been regulated in a predefined and uniform fashion, causing a lot of troubles, including overheating, etc. Real-time, granular IoT sensor inputs enable micro-zoned equipment control to achieve higher energy-efficient systems.
With occupancy data, building managers can also unveil the latest trends in HVAC and lighting control systems to optimise the equipment in the facility, including its on and off operations.
The best part is, wireless utility sub metres can deliver consumption data at discreet building areas, reducing energy consumptions and saving money.
Efficiency Facility Management
Facility management is indeed a challenging task. No matter how vigilant and proactive you are, things can go wrong, leading to increased building operational costs. The perks of IoT for smart buildings extend far beyond the standard functions like lighting and HVAC control. Wireless sensors and systems give facility managers unparalleled visibility into their building operations, including the facility’s health, equipment condition, waste management, security, and much more.
If your facility is old, sensor inputs on humidity exposure, inclination, vibration, and crack information coupled with advanced algorithms can help to build owners effectively examine and monitor their structure’s integrity. The potential values of IoT for building management are endless.
Hassle-Free BMS Upgrades for Improved Functionalities
IoT sensors are self-contained, inexpensive, easy to install and maintain. When coupled with scalable, robust, and IoT connectivity, building control systems can be easily deployed across the facility to gain comprehensive insights into diverse building functions and assets. This enables automated execution of relevant works like activation, shutdown, maintenance, and alerts.
BMS is limited to lighting, and controlling HVAC systems is a thing of the past. Ever since the IoT technologies were introduced, they’re elevating BAS functionalities and bringing new opportunities for efficient building management.
