Building services integration for energy management and building control

A home owner or commercial building manager could utilize digital integration products to connect intelligent services within a built environment .

  • An intruder detection or access control system could be used in conjunction with light level sensors to turn lights on and off. So when you walk into a dark room the lights turn on and when you leave them turn off behind you, so making energy savings by preventing lights from being left on.

Some control systems are now provided with communications ports that conform to such standards as BACnet , LonTalk or Ethernet .
