Understanding Smart Building Technology
As a cabling solutions contractor can explain, a smart building, also known as intelligent building technology, is any structure that has been outfitted with an automated system that controls systems like ventilation, lighting, security, heating, cooling, and more. A smart building uses actuators, microchips, and sensors that work together to gather data and make changes based upon preset values. As a result the smart building functions at an optimal level and a cost-effective price.
8 Myths About Smart Building Technology
Although the demand for smart buildings are rapidly increasing, there are still many myths about the technology. Below are the most popular myths a cabling solutions contractor has heard from clients and the reality to them.
Myth 8: Only one person can manage a smart building. A facility with a smart building system can be managed and improved by anyone with control access. This includes the owners, operators, and managers.
Myth 7: The technology is very expensive. An investment for smart building technology often pays for itself after 12-24 months by delivery extensive savings on energy and operational efficiency.
Myth 6: A smart building is just for energy saving. A smart building system has the potential to detect equipment failure and breaches in security. Knowing both of these beforehand could save on numerous costs as well as losses.
Myth 5: A green building is the same as a smart building. A green building typically includes various efforts beyond building automation. A smart building maximizes energy efficiency and does monitor clean air, but it is not necessarily a green building.
Myth 4: An industrial or laboratory facility cannot install smart building technology. A cabling solutions contractor can demonstrate that any building, including commercial and residential, can be outfitted with a smart building system – and benefit from it.
Myth 3: Only new buildings can be outfitted with a smart building system. Many of the worlds smartest buildings are also the oldest.
Myth 2: Smart buildings are not interoperable. Automation systems of the past used to work as a proprietary system, but now technology allows data to be gathered from disparate operational systems produced by every manufacturer, resulting in a fully functional smart building.
Myth 1: A smart building is difficult to run. Smart buildings also incorporate smart management systems which are very easy to learn and operate on a daily basis. In fact, there is an option for a smart building to be remotely controlled using mobile devices.
