There are numerous benefits of using an IoT-powered BAS to transform the facility into a smart, fully automated, and energy-efficient structure.
FREMONT, CA: Technology is advancing in great strides with each passing day. Anything from vehicles to cellphones is becoming more complex, with capabilities people never imagined. It's only natural that the residencies and offices become as intelligent as the things people use. Since the world people live in is dynamic, the spaces where they live and work must represent this by being adaptable.
Building Automation Systems (BAS) have been transformed by theInternet of Things (IoT). IoT-based BAS makes the structure intuitive and proactive with built-in intelligence, empowering occupants and making control and management more accessible than ever before.
IoT Powered Building Automation and Traditional BAS
Conventional building automation systems have outlived their usefulness. A network of diverse devices and systems that govern various operations of a building, like HVAC, security, lighting, and many more, are gradually becoming ineffective in serving the building's and its occupants' ever-increasing requirements and demands. They can make it harder to achieve company objectives like cost reduction, energy efficiency, flexibility, and future-proofing.
All of that has changed due to the Internet of Things. IoT develops an interconnected environment, and connectivity brings simplicity, faster response times, fewer chances of human mistakes, and a greater degree of customization based on the occupants' demands, all of which led to increased efficiency and comfort.
Advantages of IoT Powered BAS
Occupant Health and Productivity
The IoT-enabled BAS also aids in the improvement of occupant health and productivity. IoT-based BAS guarantees that temperature, air quality, and illumination are kept at optimal levels by continuously monitoring numerous variables. Occupants are more comfortable, healthier, and more productive due to improved indoor air quality, human-centric lighting, and thermal comfort.
Visibility and Insights
Enhanced energy analytics and reporting, and innovativeautomation technologies, can provide real-time visibility and insights into the facility's operations. Users may look into energy usage patterns, trends, thermal patterns, heat loads by zone, occupancy metrics, and more. They don't have to regulate the building systems and also have the ability to operate them from anywhere at any time.
