Before it became accessible to many, connectivity was once really costly. The price of setting up wireless IP or wired IP connectivity was too expensive for integrators and customers. In the last few years, however, the internet witnessed a huge explosion in a number of gadgets linked. This heightened level of connectivity allows for better building efficiency. They can now easily deliver data about energy and building performance through cloud-based technology.
For instance, Automated Fault Detection & Diagnostics (AFDD) can provide the users an insight on the current performance of the building and the real-time costs.
Every year, tech firms surprise the world with their innovative designs and features, whether it is hardware or software. This is a huge advantage to the industry, as these gadgets help increase the employee’s productivity. With just the use of a mobile platform, managers can easily oversee the status of the building.
