Leveraging Wireless Technology to Reduce Building Energy Costs
Building owners and operators face many challenges, and energy costs is one of the greatest. It’s estimated that 30% or more of energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. While building automation technology can help meet this challenge, the cost and complexity of these systems has been a roadblock to widespread adoption, especially for older buildings and smaller enterprises. New advances in wireless technology have changed this equation, offering new choices for building controls and management. This paper examines the advantages and disadvantages of the major wireless standards, and how building owners can use wireless products to reduce energy costs.
