As we already proposed, the fashion concepts are the ones that go further and become a reality that is already present in our lives. What are they? How do they affect us? On this occasion, the Smart Buildings…

The Smart Buildings or Intelligent Buildings will be an indispensable part of the SmartCities, with an aligned concept to them. However, they also operate independently and are already a reality.

Smart Buildings will focus on control and process automation, including management of energy efficiency, lighting, air conditioning, security and access control, audiovisual systems and video surveillance, and total control of the various systems buildings from a computer or workstation.

The aim is to maximize the functionality of the building

The aim is to maximize the functionality of the building, improving the effectiveness of it, providing as many benefits, guaranteeing accessibility, increasing safety to the maximum, and increasing energy saving and efficiency.

Some of the essentials for an Intelligent Building are:

Indispensable for an Intelligent Building
