Given the high potential for optimization and consequently also cost savings that can be leveraged through smart central monitoring, open-loop and closed-loop control of properties, building automation is becoming an ever more important facet of modern facility management.
The task fulfilled by building automation is to bundle and process all the relevant data generated by the technical facilities within a property. This central provision of data is guaranteed through the cross-property networking of all sensors, actuators, operating elements, loads and other technical facilities.
Depending on the requirements of the user, building automation takes any number of different forms. These include open and closed-loop control of lighting, heating, ventilation or air conditioning systems taking into account external lighting, temperature, wind, time of day or movement, as well as optimized surveillance. Other areas which can be implemented using building automation technology include access control systems, the monitoring of window and door contacts as well as alarm systems, and consumer data acquisition from heat, water, gas or electricity meters.
The overriding aim is to achieve central monitoring as well as open and closed-loop control of selected property parameters.
