Smart Buildings – Taking Building Automation to the Next Level

Building automation, as a working discipline, has been around for ~ 30 years. By the turn of the century many buildings were equipped with computers/controllers that could connect to the internet and provide greater control over many building parameters (temperature, lighting, access, security, etc.). Those buildings could be considered “automated” but they were not “smart”. Smart buildings are the next phase of this evolution. The Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) are combining to make buildings more dynamic, more adaptive, and more efficient. This article addressees the current challenges faced by building operators and facility managers and how emerging technologies can address these challenges.
