Smart buildings have intelligent systems that are designed to communicate with each other and work seamlessly together every minute of every day: 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Smart buildings have systems and devices designed to allow them to communicate with other systems, monitor themselves and associated systems, and make adjustments as conditions dictate. Building systems can range from fire detection, suppression, and reporting devices to complex climate and lighting controls or perimeter intrusion devices that can monitor all activity from points of egress and ingress, such as windows, doors, fences, and loading docks. Buildings, like people, have different needs and need different degrees of intelligence. Whatever your needs, we can engineer, install, and service everything you need to make your building as smart as it needs to be.
Take The Right Step Towards Safety
Smart buildings reduce risk. By integrating surveillance systems to alarm, fire, and HVAC systems, people can be evacuated out of a burning building faster, slip and fall accidents can be investigated more timely and thoroughly and workplace violence incidents can be responded to more quickly or avoided altogether.
Smart buildings add function. By integrating access control, asset tracking, intercom and surveillance systems, employees can communicate better, have a better understanding of who is in the building, find critical assets more effectively and manage visitor or customer flow more effectively.
Lastly, smart buildings work beyond the building equipment within the structure. They are connected and responsive to the smart power grid, and they interact with building operators and occupants in other locations to empower them with new levels of visibility and actionable information.
