New space management solutions, equipped with a range of sensors (for example, touch, motion, and occupancy), are becoming more beneficial in large commercial buildings with important power structures, such as airports and stadiums.
FREMONT, CA: Smart building capabilities and applications are becoming more important as they meet growing demand in some areas and can increase building value in a rapidly changing market where stakeholder needs to evolve and adopt digital transformation with IoT and analytics at the center allows to connect ever more solutions. This new wave of smart building solutions is dubbed ‘Building Automation 2.0’.
They are new smart building applications that come in various shapes and sizes, with several systems on the market based on the type of structure and its intended use. While many traditional players in the building automation market are already expanding their core offering with such applications across multiple segments, they are seeing new suppliers enter the market who are focused explicitly on such next-generation ‘building automation 2.0’ smart building applications.
Take a look at three of the developing smart building application categories.
Space Management Solutions:Space management solutions are already in use in commercial real estate, such as office buildings, but they are also employed in retail stores, to name just one example. New space management solutions, equipped with a range of sensors (for example, touch, motion, and occupancy), are becoming more beneficial in large commercial buildings with important power structures, such as airports and stadiums. Occupancy and motion sensors can be utilized to improve the speed with which passengers can move through the airport. Managers can deploy workers as needed to appropriate regions of the facility due to real-time analytics.
Asset Management Solutions: Asset management solutions are becoming increasingly significant within specific commercial buildings, particularly healthcare companies. Hospitals can use asset management solutions to improve inventory management, reduce operating expenses, and automate clinical inventory processes, among other things.
Environmental Monitoring:The environmental monitoring category of next-generation smart building solutions can be defined as environmental monitoring to improve occupant wellness and comfort, which is another hot topic in the commercial real estate business for all the obvious reasons. Consider sensors that monitor noise levels, air quality, and natural lighting systems, allowing one to track real-time conditions for these factors in specific areas and make adjustments based on the preferences.
