Depending on the size of the building and the sub-systems integrated, maintaining operations of a building can be challenging. Building automation system makes it much easier to run and maintain operations of a building. It not only provides huge convenience but also helps in reducing operating costs, in turn, reducing the overhead. In order to maintain operations and drive down operation costs, both newer and older buildings are looking for effective Building Automation Systems (BAS).
A building automation system commonly known as BAS is a combination of software and electronic, electric and mechanical devices that meant to automate the operations of building’s systems including: mechanical, security, fire and flood safety, lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. An automated technology solution automates all the process involved in the workflow by eliminating most of the human intervention requirements.
The building automation system helps in maintaining the building safe, healthy and comfortable for its occupants. A building having automated system is often referred to as an intelligent building or "smart building”. Automation systems reduce building energy and maintenance costs.
Various devices that are involved in BAS are:-
· Air handlers
· Constant volume air-handling units
· Variable volume air-handling units
· Chilled water system
· Hot Water System
Building automation systems offered by IOTomation can be easily integrated in all building types, sizes, and for every use. It can be integrated with a wide choice of different building control disciplines like heating, ventilation, air conditioning applications, lights, cameras, escalators, safety features, and many other types of equipment.
