Buildings are able to autonomously manage all of their resources while improving their performance thanks to the data collected by IoT (Internet of Things) devices and their interconnection.
Fremont, CA: Technology can help a building use its resources more efficiently and increase security. Thousands of people worldwide are starting to understand this more and more—particularly those who reside in advanced cities. Markets & Markets predicts that the worldwide smart building market will develop rapidly over the next several years, reaching 105.8 billion dollars by 2024.
Considering that this same market had a turnover of $60.7 billion in 2019, the rise is significant. These statistics demonstrate development in the creation of smart buildings. People are aware of technology's benefits for facilities, including how an intelligent building's functionalities make it easier to complete complicated tasks and increase building safety.
What is a smart building?
Smart buildings are structures with a smart infrastructure that collects data to automate various activities, including lighting, access, air conditioning, video surveillance, parking, and security.
Buildings are able to autonomously manage all of their resources while improving their performance thanks to the data collected by IoT (Internet of Things) devices and their interconnection. It can also give someone helpful information to help them decide better ways to enhance the building's usability and effectiveness. The features that smart buildings provide go beyond home automation systems.
The following attributes are available in smart buildings:
• Connecting building systems
All of the systems and equipment in a building get connected in a contemporary structure that uses the newest technologies. In this approach, one may access historical recordings of events that happened a few minutes, hours, or days ago and be alerted about them in real-time, allowing users to intervene remotely if an emergency arises in the building's systems.
• Connecting people and technology
Intelligent structures are ones that make it easy and intuitive for people to benefit from the most recent technological advancements.
• Centralized control of building behavior
Anyone with accessibility to a central platform may view the behavior of the building in a snapshot and make the required modifications. Systems like lighting, power outlets, heating, air conditioning, appliances, doors, windows, blinds, irrigation, DHW generators, etc., may all be controlled and automated.
