Thanks to new technologies, and protected by the growing advantages offered by the Internet of Things (IoT), smart buildings have arrived to provide solutions, improve efficiency and reduce consumption in our society.
Saving energy, increasing safety and investing in the quality of jobs are the objectives pursued by the implementation of open control systems in offices.
Intelligent buildings are characterized by being equipped with automation systems and control of lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, intrusion and fire alarms, access control, elevators, video surveillance, telecommunications, multimedia, robots, etc. integrated and interconnected among them and in turn to the Internet.
The objective of smart buildings is to meet the demands regarding aspects such as comfort, safety, connectivity, energy efficiency, operations and maintenance, complying with regulations and current legislation. Intelligent Buildings cover all types of types, including homes, businesses, offices, industries, sports facilities, etc.
Current consumption has to ensure energy management in line with ecological responsibility. This spirit is precisely what these intelligent control systems maintain, which allow us to maintain optimal conditions, avoiding waste of unnecessary energy. Smart buildings offer the opportunity to manage consumption in a way much more in line with the most current and ecological consumer directives.
The immotic is defined as the integral automation of real estate with high technology; that is, large buildings. This entails a series of advantages such as increasing safety, increasing comfort, improving telecommunications, saving energy, reducing costs and time, offering new forms of entertainment, leisure and other services within that space.
However, the immotic is closely related to home automation, but has its own characteristics that differentiate it. While home automation is responsible for the energy management of the house in an individualized way, the inmotic does it in an integral way for the whole building.
It is oriented to the automation of complexes and buildings of tertiary or industrial use such as leisure centers, hotels, hospitals, health centers, commercial areas, neighborhood communities, business buildings, industrial buildings, educational centers, institutes, universities, disabled centers, town halls, sports facilities, gyms or airports, among many others.
These smart buildings are what will allow building the cities of the future, the so-called smart cities, which will be able to efficiently manage public services and provide value and other sources of income.
