What energy managers need to know about wireless technology
Research indicates that commercial buildings waste as much as 30% of their energy consumption in managing lighting, HVAC and humidity control. A building management system (BMS) can help control energy use.
Deploying a wireless BMS solution offers advantages for facility and energy management:
- Ease of installation is a given – no special wiring, no renovation, and minimal disruption to business.
- A wireless BMS installation is faster, which leads to lower cost of ownership and faster ROI.
- Wireless offers full scalability due to open protocols for communication and applications. Upgrades and add-ons are also easier to manage.
- In support of green initiatives, wireless adheres to regulations and guidelines – and enables the use of energy-efficient systems.
