Understanding Building Automation and Control Systems

Understanding Building Automation and Control SystemsOften times, when we walk through the entrance of a commercial building, we are greeted with a sliding entry door, air conditioning or heating, good lighting and other conveniences that make our time spent there comfortable and conducive to getting the job completed. While we are expecting technology to function smoothly so we can accomplish our goals, we may not realize how much is going on behind the scenes in order for all of this to take place. This is where a building automation system steps in. These systems are centralized, interlinked networks consisting of both software and hardware that control and monitor multiple environments inside of an industrial or commercial facility. A building automation system not only manages multiple building systems at one time, it also guarantees a structure’s operational performance and keeps its inhabitants safe and comfortable. The next time you step inside a high-tech commercial building, consider all of the systems that are working together to make that building functional and safe. These systems will control and monitor the mechanical and electrical function, temperature and lighting, the building’s elevators, security and more. Each sophisticated system is able to share its information with one another through an IP network, in order to ensure everything is working resourcefully. Continue reading

Intelligent Buildings: Energy Management

Intelligent Buildings: Energy ManagementIf you own a commercial building in South Florida, energy management and ways to save money have most likely crossed your mind. If so, you certainly are not alone. In fact, according to The World Business Council for Sustainable Development, buildings consume approximately 40% of the world’s energy, making energy management and monitoring a hot topic among building owners. Add to this fact that 30 – 40% of the average commercial building is unoccupied at any given time, and it is clear to see that narrowing in on a way to preserve valuable (and costly) resources such as lighting, cooling and heating is crucial. For South Florida commercial building owners, determining ways to save money due to energy costs is taken to an entirely new level, thanks to scorching temperatures and high energy bills. Luckily, Advanced Control Corporation’s energy monitoring and management systems are designed to increase your building’s efficiency and lower energy costs, leaving you with additional money to grow your business. We understand that energy management is a key concern for building owners and offer wide-ranging energy management plans and monitoring systems for each building’s unique needs. Continue reading

Smart Building Solutions for Energy-Efficient Buildings

Smart Building Solutions for Energy-Efficient BuildingsSmart building solutions offer many benefits to building owners; they improve the operation of all the individual building control systems, create a more comfortable building environment, and enhance the safety and security of occupants. While those are all important advantages, the benefit that leads many South Florida building owners to install smart building solutions in their facilities is the solutions’ ability to increase energy efficiency. Energy costs are the single largest operational expense of commercial buildings, and cooling, lighting, and ventilation can account for as much as 62% of the energy commercial  buildings typically use (according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration).For owners whose buildings are subjected to sweltering South Florida temperatures, this can translate to staggeringly large bills for energy use.  Smart building solutions enable owners to get their energy costs under control, by reducing energy usage by as much as 30%.

Smart Building Managed Services

Smart Building Managed ServicesThe increasingly advanced technology at the heart of today’s smart buildings allows them to integrate all the individual building systems, improving their functioning and creating a more secure, comfortable environment for occupants.  While smart buildings excel at eradicating inefficiencies and automating processes, even the most advanced intelligent building technology can’t entirely eliminate the need for human oversight. Building managers and operations personnel are needed to facilitate and supervise building operations, so they can identify and eliminate problems, perform ongoing maintenance, and monitor energy management operations. For facilities with a large budget and extensive personnel roster this is not a problem, but owners of smaller facilities, and those that do not wish to hire a full staff are left with a personnel gap. Advanced Control Corporation is here to help, with a full list of available smart building managed services. We can train your staff or provide your facility with skilled personnel who are well-versed in every aspect of smart building operations and analytics, including energy management and conservation tasks.
