What is an intelligent building?
Integrated systems that optimize functionality and performance.
Intelligent buildings integrate various types of building systems to manage operations, optimize performance, and increase functionality. When integrated, these systems help buildings function more efficiently through automation and monitoring, ultimately providing a safer and more cost-efficient environment.
Types of Intelligent Building Systems
- Building Management Systems: Allows owners to control and monitor mechanical and electrical systems such as HVAC, lighting, power and security systems. Building value increases when integrated system strategies are deployed, which ultimately increases system efficiency and promotes safety for tenants and piece of mind for owners.
- Energy Management Systems: Intelligent buildings are known for their ability to reduce energy consumption with systems that can control lighting and HVAC, measure utility usage, and provide reporting data. Energy management systems give building owners the ability to effectively manage their resources and reduce costs through metering and measurement.
- Technology Management Systems: These integrated business solutions incorporate different technologies, such as voice, video, data sharing technology and storage, onto a common IP, simplifying capital and operating expenditures.
