Smart Buildings and Their Benefits

Date : 9-26-2018

Understanding the Concept of Smart Buildings

In the modern online age we live in, the built environment is able to support us in our daily lives like never before and central to this new paradigm are smart buildings.

Intelligent sensors can now be integrated into a building’s infrastructure for the purpose of collecting data and providing significant improvements in building services and how we interact with them. In this article, we look at some of the benefits provided by these new waves of smart technology.

Maintenance Issues Predicted

The aforementioned sensors are able to constantly monitor the performance any given building and make adjustments without even alerting building users. Environmental controls and equipment malfunction can all be rectified automatically with minimal human involvement, saving the time and resources that would normally be required.

Energy Efficiency

The data collected by smart sensors are able to distinguish between areas of the building that are being used and those that aren’t. This means that systems used to heat or cool those areas can be adjusted when needed and use less energy as a result. The same principle can also be employed to switch other services like lighting and power off and on as required.

Equipment Lifecycle Management

There comes a point when the maintenance needed on certain equipment to keep it operational, outweighs the cost of replacing it. Sensor data provided can be used to accurately determine when that point has been reached. This can either be at the set date given by the manufacturer or a date established by the rate of necessary repair work.

Efficient Site Cleaning

As mentioned earlier, smart sensors are able to monitor how certain parts of the building are being used, which also includes whether they’re being used or not. This information is extremely useful when cleaning managers need to allocate staff to areas that need the most attention, rather than re-doing areas that don’t necessarily need it, having not been used since the last clean.

In Conclusion

Of course there are many other ways for smart technology to make our daily routines that much easier, but in terms of building management, IoT devices are increasingly being utilised to save building owners money. The fact that these technologies can be used in this way, pretty much guarantees that their integration and use in commercial and residential properties is only going to become more widespread.
