SmartBuilding FM 400

By Caryl Anne Crowne

Digital smart technology is changing almost every aspect of how we live, and the buildings we live in are no exception. Increasingly, instead of humans deciding how a building is heated, lit, etc., smart technology is gathering data, analyzing it and reacting accordingly while whoever is inside the building goes about their normal activities. Smart technology in buildings not only makes life more convenient for their inhabitants, it is more efficient and therefore saves on energy bills and reduces the negative impact of the environment.

Smart technology will make life easier for visitors to public facilities. For example, someone attending a meeting at a given building can have their identification badge read automatically and then get a text message informing them what room their meeting is in and how to get there. Once in the room, the temperature will already be adjusted to a comfortable level. Read More
