Managing or owning a building is no simple task. With so many features, systems, and people requiring your attention and supervision, it can become overwhelming to stay on top of everything. What if you’re out of town, and you find out that the heating in your building is no longer functioning? How can you make sure the problem is promptly addressed in a time-and-cost effective way?
Building automation systems (BAS) are just one of the many rising trends in building construction and renovation. A good automation system controls factors such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and security alarms. This allows you as the building owner to improve efficiency, save money, and ultimately, maximize the safety of your building.
Your building automation system is like a central nervous system. It streamlines your building’s various systems and operations, integrates them together, and helps a manager or technician easily and thoroughly understand the ins-and-outs of their building. However, when you’re dealing with an outdated or obsolete BAS, then you’re going to be wasting valuable time, resources, and energy on its continued need for updates and repairs.
