Proper design and engineering of automation systems can provide numerous advantages for facility managers, occupants and building owners. Presently, the most common automation systems provide comfortable temperature levels and proper home lighting while lowering the overall energy cost. However, automation has taken more dimensions and other services have been included in the system. The design of an automated system will determine how effective that system will be. So, it’s important to select competent and knowledgeable engineering consultant when designing a home automation system. Are there benefits of designing automated systems? Yes, there are lots of benefits.
Efficient use of resources
One important benefit of designing and engineering automation system on a building is the efficiency of resource use. Electrical systems and HV AC systems are very costly to replace. With automation, depreciation will be curtailed and the system will send an alert whenever there is any issue that may lead to costly repairs if not attended to.
Another important benefit of building automation system is the fact that occupants of the building will enjoy better comfort and more secured environment. The entire building will have an improved security since control systems and alerts can set off automatically to get people informed whenever there is any slight concern for safety.
Finally, key personnel will have little task since more of the gadgets are on automation. This frees them up to attend to less mundane duties.
Building automation system design is the next big thing in home management. With a Smartphone, tablet, laptop, or a desktop, home owners or property managers can effectively control almost all areas of the building such as plumbing (water resources), electrical systems (fire alarms, CCTV, lighting, security systems) and mechanical systems (heat pumps, fans, air handlers, chillers, boilers). This will create efficiency and definitely reduce the overall cost of managing the building.
