BUSINESS Where the building meets professionalism!
Would you ever imagine that a building can function, understand and translate the stimuli of the environment and then adapt to them to the benefit of the user? And yet it is possible. Intelligent buildings can precisely achieve this, always operating for the benefit of the user, in a flexible and adaptable manner depending on weather changes, by exploiting natural resources through automation and control systems and, most importantly, by saving energy to a considerable extent.
The demands of modern buildings in terms of facilities have significantly increased in recent years. End-users demonstrate such increased demands by requiring more comfort, greater security, better look, energy savings, and central, local and remote-control capabilities at a distance.
A building that can change behaviour depending on the season is definitely a high intelligence building.
A "smart building" has facilities which are easy and flexible to adapt to the changing requirements of the user.
Applications mainly include lighting control, electric roller shutters, heating, air conditioning, ventilation, electricity load and consumption management, remote controls and central commands of all kinds.
The high intelligence index of a building is demonstrated by the existence of natural light. An intelligent building has windows and skylights so that artificial lighting can only be used in a complementary way and after it starts to get dark.
Where an office building is concerned, a smart building has side windows that allow all work stations to be serviced with natural light, and artificial light is also provided for each worker separately.
A smart building does not necessarily mean more electromechanical installations. They are also designed to behave and react intelligently. If, for example, a cloud suddenly appears in the sky, artificial lighting intensifies. If the building sensors understand that there are no more people in the room, the lights automatically turn off.
Energy management is a key feature of a smart building and an essential link to the implementation of a ‘green’ building. It is therefore important to choose the right solution that combines a set of quality criteria in order to obtain the best result.
Automation offers a unique experience in hotels. It provides a unique, luxurious experience to every visitor; for instance, it can program a desired "Wake Up" scenario whereby the curtains will gradually open and the user’s favourite pre-selected music will commence instead of the user waking up with the alarm or phone.
At the same time, the creation of a smart building not only serves the proper management of energy but also serves the proper management of images from the building, for example from a professional meeting room with integrated and automated presentation solutions, to the garden of every building so that it is always maintained in a proper condition.
The use of the appropriate automation system according to the needs of each building, an intelligent building can be created beyond any expectation.
