Building in Building Automation

More corporate owners want building automation for myriad reasons—greater control, improve energy efficiency, heightened safety and security, and more. Now it is a matter of determining how to incorporate these systems into new projects—and recognizing how the technology is changing.

Today, many building automation and control systems are beginning to incorporate the IoT (Internet of things), which is improving the efficiency of the building. The IoT enables the collection of realtime data and helps streamline the operation of all devices like lighting, safety and security, and access controls. Contractors in any of these disciplines will have to learn about the new systems and how the IoT may change construction in the future.

Commercial buildings are the major end-users of building automation systems, followed by residential and government. The segment’s growth is attributed primarily to the increased demand for enhanced energy efficiency and faster automation systems in building management. The global building automation and control systems market will grow 9.52% during the next four years.

Due to the rise in infrastructural developments, more commercial and office buildings are also expected be built. Fire and safety control, surveillance systems, and lighting systems are needed in these buildings to improve the safety and security.

As these new buildings are under construction and the advanced systems are installed, contractors who know how to install the building automation systems will have the advantage in getting the jobs.
