NOR-COM offers a large selection of Building Automation solutions. These solutions allow you to monitor your equipment and the environment from any computer or smart device. Our customers can monitor and control building energy usage, HVAC, lighting, shades and even manage meeting room use.
During the past two decades, systems have vastly expanded in both capacity and capability. Interoperability has allowed standalone systems to be merged into a single, comprehensive system. Wireless technology has helped to reduce installation costs while increasing system flexibility. Advances in computer technology have slashed equipment costs while vastly improving system performance. Software improvements have made the systems easier to use.
Systems are more user friendly and companies today are finding being proactive, instead of reactive now produces real-time information along with cost savings.
As building automation systems are increasingly being used as part of a much larger information system, managers now routinely manage tenant spaces, facility assets, equipment maintenance, and even their energy procurement through a centralized workstation or smart device. The requirements for “information integration” are now much broader than envisioned and their corresponding data models are constantly evolving.
There has been much attention paid to the relative merits of various protocols in the building automation industry. The key to a successful IBAS lies not only in the protocol, but also in the information model that it retrieves and presents.
Today the market has evolved to a point where Integrated Building Management Systems are becoming the significant way to convert the brick and mortar asset as a revenue-generating tool through effective energy management system. This is compared to an asset that accrues the operating cost and ultimately erodes the profits.
