Building management systems
Nowadays people are woken in the morning by soft music, the blinds open automatically, lights are turned on gently and the coffee machine starts brewing of its own accord. When you leave the house, all the appliances and lights turn off as if by magic and the blinds roll down by themselves.
Climate change and the ever advancing demand for more comfort and safety mean that we can no longer talk of mere electrical installation, but instead about building management.
New technologies have made buildings with all these benefits possible:
- Greater energy efficiency.
- More comfort.
- Adaptability to residents‘ own uniquely different requirements.
- More safety.
Thus, in addition to the traditional activities of electricians, these new challenges are redefining the area of building management:
- Control systems.
- Visualisation of lighting, heating, solar energy, safety and security, entertainment electronics, information technology and telecommunications systems.
