Smart buildings use a range of technology to gather and share information about what goes on in a building between systems. The information can then be analysed and used to automate processes like heating and security, making the building more efficient, lowering costs and reducing environmental impact. The technology used in smart buildings can also be used to aid safety, comfort and productivity for its occupants.
