Automating Smart Buildings in a Smarter Way

Latest Trends in Building Automation

Michael Rosario, Construction Tech Review | Wednesday, September 01, 2021

Smart building techniques enable more activities to be completed rapidly and easily in a building than traditional devices, resulting in cost savings and increased efficiency. 

FREMONT, CA: Building automation is being pushed to new heights by rising demand for effective energy management and a growing focus on reducing utility costs. These systems are already installed in most buildings in developed nations.

Smart building techniques enable more jobs to be completed faster and more efficiently than previous generations of devices, resulting in cost savings and increased efficiency. Lighting, heating, automatic centralized control, conditioning, and other building automation systems are all examples of cutting-edge building technology.

Top 10 Emerging Modular Construction Solution Companies - 2021

Conventional and modern home solutions companies have been driven to bring intelligence to all operations in the house by rapid and continuous improvements in cost-effective silicon, AI, cloud-enabled systems, and more. In the retrofit market, smart building technology will play a critical role, especially with older buildings that have an outdated BAS or small/medium-sized facilities that don't have a BAS.

Virtual BAS technology can manage HVAC and lighting systems utilizing cloud-based controls due to the Internet of Things. These controls can apply weekend and holiday schedules while incorporating complicated IoT-based sensors control routines in heating/cooling zones.

Here are some of the top building automation trends in 2020.

Network Integration

In smart building systems, automation is the most critical technology. Building systems have traditionally been isolated closed blocks with their interfaces and no connectivity with external systems. Automation is now fully integrated into the same network as other systems such as fire alarms, access control units, elevators, and other similar systems. This core of the network is the cloud. Communication between these networks is accessible and achievable in an intelligent building.

Building Automation via Wireless

It's no surprise that as people move closer to the digital age, everything will be wireless. The field of building automation is no exception. Installation and modifications are more accessible, and remote operation is more feasible due to wireless connectivity in smart buildings. Connecting automation to the cloud is simple and successful since it gives flexibility and ease of implementation. This would increase demand for wireless technology, resulting in more competition, which will keep R&D teams busy.

Energy Efficiency

The impact of building automation and control capabilities on a building's efficiency must be considered. It encourages building energy efficiency, lowers building operating costs, conserves current energy supplies, and minimizes CO2 emissions. Only a small fraction of buildings have access to any real-time energy reporting. Advanced technology, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), can help real-time monitoring energy, water, and gas meters. In addition, having real-time submetering data might highlight apparent inefficiencies in the facility.
