Most of us recognize building automation as a tool to decrease energy consumption while driving the functionality and life cycle value of most facilities. They have certainly helped us to maximize building performance resulting in increased efficiency and providing high-level tools for facility assessment and optimization. But does it end there? According to some of the most recognized professionals in the industry, an automation system should be designed and delivered by adding higher levels of system integration and connectivity. This not only results in improved occupant comfort and ease of operation for management, but can also incorporate SAFETY.
System integration is the bringing together of the component subsystems into one system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system. We offer solutions for any type of access that will not only increase the level of comfort in each zone, but will also increase control. Fire alarm is already commonly integrated with the ventilation system and elevator controls, and a proper CCTV system with cameras strategically placed will enable you to meet proper insurance requirements and be able to record evidence which can be helpful in the case of accident claims which are not legitimate. Linking these systems will also dramatically improve response times in emergencies as technology takes over the generated alarms or alerts. Your building not only becomes more efficient, it also becomes more secure.
