Building Automation and the Intelligent Building
The intelligent building is transforming how we connect and control work spaces. The first evolution of the intelligent building was labeled “Building Automation.” As an often proprietary, closed-code solution, Building Automation was focused on simplifying environment control for operating efficiency, comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs.
Pressure from the broader technology landscape, promising greater efficiencies and integration with systems beyond facility-controlled utilities, has moved Building Automation solutions toward open source coding and standard cabling solutions. Convergence of lighting, access control, HVAC, audio/visual, and surveillance, on the IT network has opened doors to broader control and deeper insights into how we use and control environments.
To meet the evolving demands in Building Control, the Cable Plus team stays current on the latest trends in connecting the Intelligent Building while maintaining inventory to support traditional Building Automation infrastructure.
