Building Automation, for the Internet of Things
The industry of building controls and automation is changing. New and advanced equipment will allow you to expand and renovate your space and develop a fully automated eco-friendly system, which requires less maintenance from human hands.
Benefits of Building Controls and Automation Systems
Intelligent controls and automation systems have been around for quite some time in a wide variety of industry sectors. What they do is enforce technique and procedures under automation operations, so that things can be done right the first time, every time. Here are some advantages of using building controls and automation systems in your business.
- Benefits of Bringing Energy Intelligence Controls to Your Facility: Energy intelligence is achieved when plant managers understand what is driving energy consumption in their plants and work to reduce those factors. It’s not just about reducing kilowatt-hours (kWh), either. It’s also about reducing the cost per kWh. The equation is simple: if you can determine why your facility uses so much energy, then you can find ways to cut costs and save on energy. As production schedules and processes change, electricity consumption is often the easiest variable to adjust; it can do so in real time and its impact on both production and waste streams can be seen quickly.
- Lowers Costs
Building owners and operators that automate their HVAC systems have complete visibility into what their building is doing. This, combined with quality analytics that constantly monitor a system’s performance can alert an operator of issues that need to be addressed before equipment failures occur. Predictive maintenance can reduce the costs associated with emergency calls to repair a piece of equipment. You can know about an issue before the issue becomes a problem.
- Heightens Productivity and Decreases Response Time
Save time and increase productivity with efficient solutions that have been proven to work in the most demanding environments. Automation systems can transfer data, run analyses and perform other functions much more quickly than a human being. That means having more time to schedule maintenance and repair issues. Building managers can reduce equipment downtime, which increases productivity.
