South Florida Building Automation – Savings on a Rainy Day

Did the wind and rain from Tropical Storm Isaac cause your building to change its operating hours?  If your building was empty this weekend and Monday, you wasted a lot of energy by lighting and cooling those unoccupied rooms.  If you had a building automation program from Advanced Control Corp you could have overridden the schedule and turned off the lights and air conditioning from the convenience of your computer or smart phone!

The range of control is available – from a basic control system for lighting and equipment switching applications to a centralized building management system to fully automatic all your lighting and HVAC systems. HVAC and lighting control can be applied to indoor areas such as offices, cubicles, cafeterias, and storage areas.  Lighting control can also be applied to outdoor parking lots, garages, walkways, and signs. These building automation control systems can be incorporated as part of a new construction project or retrofitted to your facilities existing circuits.

You have the building’s HVAC, lighting, and temperature set for energy management and cost control but sometimes the weather or the occupants of a building will have a need to deter from the pre-set controls of the building automation system. Perhaps an employee needs to remain in the office to finish a deadline after hours. It is important that the building automation system be equipped to respond to those needs with the least amount of user/operator effort.  Tenants can schedule overrides affective same day, or future dated.
