How Smart Buildings Benefit Building Owners?

The building management system (BMS) is the brain that manages the other sections of the building's body, including HVAC systems, lighting, plumbing, processing equipment, access control systems, navigation, digital signs, and security systems. Automation is used in smart buildings to make a building grid more flexible, healthful, productive, and energy and cost-efficient.

Fremont, CA: A smart building is one that controls its systems through automated processes. Consider a smart building to be a living, breathing organism to better understand this. The building management system (BMS) is the brain that manages the other sections of the building's body, including HVAC systems, lighting, plumbing, processing equipment, access control systems, navigation, digital signs, and security systems. Automation is used in smart buildings to make a building grid more flexible, healthful, productive, and energy and cost-efficient.

What types of technology make a smart building "smart"?

 Here are some technologies that smart buildings rely on:

  • Building management systems (BMS): As previously said, a BMS, also known as a building automation system, is a computer-based system that integrates and regulates the systems of a building. The brain or central hub of a smart building instructs devices on what to perform. It guarantees that activities are secure and efficient.
  • Internet of things (IoT): The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physically connected objects that "speak" to one another by exchanging data. The Internet of Things (IoT) connects the electronics in a smart building. Sensors, lights, and meters are examples of IoT devices that collect and analyze data.
  • Sensors: Electronic, infrared, thermal, and proximity sensors capture electronic signals, which are subsequently processed by humans or artificial intelligence (AI). Sensors may be installed in a smart building to monitor electricity consumption, lighting, occupancy, temperature, and so on.
  • Augmented reality (AR): AR allows one to see their real-world surroundings with a digital augmentation overlaid on top of them. AR technology has the potential to improve smart buildings in a variety of ways, including in emergency circumstances or outages. AR-enabled glasses, for example, could assist a maintenance expert in viewing equipment instructions, warnings, installation dates, and troubleshooting suggestions that "hover" over the piece of equipment.
