Intelligent Building Controls
An intelligent controls system often yields significant reductions in operations and maintenance as well as energy consumption. A intelligent controls systems can control, monitor, and optimize building services, such as, lighting, HVAC, electrical plug-loads, security, CCTV, access control, audio-visual, as well as occupancy-related systems. The traditional Building Management System (BMS) has been the major focus of building controls since the advent of DDC systems. Emerging into the marketplace however, are advanced technology building management platforms with customizable dashboards, innovative software applications, open programming languages, and expanded integration capabilities. These integrated building management systems (IBMS) and smart controls are better suited to maintain a building’s performance and address the increased complexity of today’s buildings.
