What if the building you are working on already knew your unique preferences for lighting and temperature? For most people, this would be such a favorable convenience. What if this convenience also came with the benefits of saving costs and energy? For those who occupy smart buildings, this is quite possible.

What is a smart building?

You can think of a smart building as one using automated processes to control the various systems in the building. Think of a smart building as a living organism to create a better mental picture. This would mean that the building has a brain, in this case, the building management system (BMS), that essentially controls the body, which forms other parts of the building such as the lighting, HVAC systems, processing equipment, plumbing, access control systems, digital signage, wayfinding, and the various security systems.
