What is a Building Automation System?

Building Automation Systems (BAS) are centralized, interlinked networks of hardware and software which monitor and control the environment in industrial, commercial, or residential applications.

While managing various building systems, the automation system ensures optimal operational performance of the facility, comfort and safety of building occupants, and increases energy efficiency.

Some common examples of systems that can be automated are:

  • HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)
  • Lighting
  • Power Metering
  • VAV Fan & Coil
  • Life Safety & Fire Alarm Annunciation
  • Card access integration
  • Two-way Audio & Video Lobby Communication
