What is a Smart Building?

Smart Buildings optimize building management systems, security, and facilities management.

Generally, a Smart Building is a building that uses sensors and internet-connected devices to automate processes and provide actions and feedback to the people and machinery within it. A Smart Building uses “the internet of things” or IoT technologies to help buildings be more efficient, energy conservative, safer, and more productive. 

For example, a Smart Building may automatically turn on/off lights or adjust the heating/cooling or predict maintenance needs to improve efficiency and decrease costs.
