Technology and data from building systems give facility teams information they can use to reduce operating costs, according to an article on the FacilityCare website.
Advanced building automation system (BAS) platforms can give facility teams the ability to manage the operation of major building systems, including heating, ventilation and air-conditioning; lighting; fire protection; and entry control. These systems can be monitored and operated from a single dashboard.
As technology continues to evolve, systems will become smarter, more connected and more integrated, realizing the full potential of the Internet of Things, the article said.
Using real-time data to make information-based decisions helps hospitals develop operating and maintenance strategies that can improve building performance and cut costs.
