A smart building typically looks like a regular building, with bricks and glass windows, but at the heart of a smart building are sensors that drive building automation.
Internet of Things sensors and devices monitor HVAC and lighting, motion, humidity, electrical controls, access control and video security. The data from those sensors then feeds a variety of controllers that can help IT and operations staff automate building management.
As the General Services Administration notes, smart buildings lead to “greater tenant satisfaction, reduce energy cost and environmental impact, and decrease operational inefficiencies.”
GS Technologies Ltd (LON:GST), through its subsidiary, EMS Wiring Systems Pte. Ltd, provides services in the “Smart Building” sector. Smart Building is a diverse term that refers to the technological capabilities of buildings and other work place facilities.
