Smart Controls Group is a great believer that smart buildings can be delivered by great collaboration with its customers, from developing a concept, to bringing the team together to implement open protocols solutions to then integrate services and systems a more cost effective project can be realised.
By thinking smarter and bringing specialists together traditional approaches can be evolved and savings can be achieved in not only the deployment of a project but throughout the lifecycle of the building.
- Reduce the cost of the systems installation through integrating technologies
- Improved efficiencies in how the building operates by using demand based controls
- Flexible maintenance proposals
- Collaborative working
The most important tool is the Building Energy Management System (BEMS) as it is usually connected to the services that attribute to up to 80% of a buildings cost throughout the buildings lifecycle. By installing open protocol systems which more manufacturers are adopting, protocols like BACnet, KNX and Modbus integration, various building systems including HVAC, Lighting, Fire, and Security can be installed at a fraction of the cost of conventional systems.
