Buildings today are much more than structures of concrete that house offices, residences and bear an address. They are intelligent entities that perform a variety of functions by using a host of modern electronics applications. A host of green features like water and energy conservation, waste management, indoor air quality and occupants’ comfort levels make a smart building.
It has created its own brand of building automation solutions for institutional and commercial establishments comprising malls, office complexes, hotels, hospitals and even residences. These solutions cater to different requirements of modern buildings such as energy efficiency, safety, convenience, comfort and include HVAC Controls – Building Management Systems (BMS), Energy Management Systems (EMS), CCTV, Fire Detection & Alarm Systems (FDAS), Access Control Systems, and Lighting Controls. BMS or HVAC controls ensure greater convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and coordinate with the rest of the building utilities for various functions.
EMS is all about ensuring improved quality of power and energy efficiency. This is achieved through Energy Auditing Reports, web-based tool that helps monitor and re-distribute energy loads. The CCTV connected with powerful cameras provides security and safety of public places, buildings and enterprises through surveillance. Fast action, easy integration, simultaneous alarms to agencies and de-activation/activation of desired areas in a building form crucial aspects of FDAS while Access Control allows only authorised personnel to access a premise.
In addition to the meters, Overcurrent, Earth fault and Voltage relays are available for required protection on the incomer feeders. The range of Power Factor Controllers can be used for monitoring power factor to ensure avoidance of penalty due to low power factor.
