The BMS (building management system) is the central hub that manages the other sections of the body, including HVAC systems, lighting, plumbing, processing equipment, access control systems, navigation, digital signs, and security systems. Automation is employed in smart buildings to make a building grid more flexible, healthful, productive, and energy and cost-efficient.
Fremont, CA: A smart building controls its systems through automated processes. Consider a smart building a living, breathing organism to better understand this. The BMS (building management system) is the central hub that manages the other sections of the body, comprising HVAC systems, lighting, plumbing, processing equipment, access control systems, navigation, digital signs, and security systems. Automation is employed in smart buildings to make a building grid more pliant, healthful, productive, and energy and cost-effective.
What kinds of technology make a smart building "smart"?
Following are some technologies that smart buildings rely on:
• Building management systems (BMS): As mentioned before, a BMS, also called a building automation system, is a computer-based system that incorporates and regulates the systems of a structure. The central hub or brain of a smart building orders devices on what to perform. It assures that activities are secure and efficient.
• Internet of things (IoT): IoT (The Internet of Things) is a network of physically associated objects that "speak" to one another by interchanging data. The Internet of Things (IoT) joins the electronics in a smart building. Sensors, lights, and meters are instances of IoT devices that assemble and analyze data.
• Sensors: Electronic, infrared, thermal, and proximity sensors catch electronic signals, which are eventually processed by humans or artificial intelligence (AI). Sensors may be positioned in a smart building to observe electricity consumption, lighting, occupancy, temperature, etc.
• Augmented reality (AR): AR enables one to see their real-world surroundings with a digital augmentation overlaid. AR technology can improve smart buildings in various ways, including emergencies or outages. AR-enabled glasses, for instance, could assist a maintenance expert in viewing equipment instructions, warnings, installation dates, and troubleshooting suggestions that "hover" over the equipment.
