Building automation is monitoring and controlling a building’s systems including: mechanical, security, fire and flood safety, lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Such systems can
- keep building climates within a specified range,
- light rooms according to an occupancy schedule,
- monitor performance and device failures in all systems, and
- alarm facility managers in the event of a malfunction.
