Managing the technology that is used to control the various functions of today’s buildings is a complex task. This task continues to grow in magnitude as the number of systems in a building that can be monitored and controlled through a building management system has multiplied in recent years in response to the challenges faced by building owners. The profusion of building management systems, combined with the development of the Internet and the spread of IT infrastructure, have culminated in the creation of intelligent building management systems. An intelligent building management system is a single platform that controls and integrates building management systems into a unified whole over an IP network.

Building automation systems market will grow continue to grow globally and is expected to reach a total market value of more than $36 billion by 2015 according to a new market analysis by ABI Research. Recessions always bring a re-evaluation of energy management and calls for new ways to ensure organizations and nations use energy more efficiently. The same is true in the latest downturn and it is driving significant interest and activity in the market for building automation systems.
Energy use within commercial buildings has been growing year-on-year for decades and now accounts for up to 20% of national energy consumption in many developed countries. Worldwide, buildings consume approximately 42% of all electricity, surpassing any other asset. This makes it a prime target for energy efficiency and environmental measures. To achieve sustainable energy consumption levels, it is essential that appropriate and effective building management systems be employed. These building automation systems must include applications such as HVAC and lighting controls.
Building automation technology by Advanced Control Corporation provides industry-leading HVAC technology. Temperature control through the proper building automation system is an ideal way to lower energy consumption by insuring that each area is accurately monitored and maintaining the specified set points. The smart building automation software that is used by Advanced Control Corporation analyzes energy use to provide energy savings and still maintain the comfort of the inhabitants. In addition, it has the capacity to receive, store and analyze metering and sensor data provided to optimize and track energy use.
Advanced Control also has the technology to help you increase your building’s electricity efficiency and lower your costs with lighting control. The range of control can be from a basic control system for lighting and equipment switching applications which are ideal for use in facilities where time-of-day control is being managed from a time clock or centralized building management system to a fully automatic lighting control for all of your facilities lighting circuits. These lighting control systems can be incorporated as part of a new construction project or retrofitted to your facilities existing lighting circuits to allow all types of buildings to have the efficient control of the lighting circuits.
