WHY DOES YOUR BAS NEED TO BE FUTURE-READY?
July 20, 2023
Building Automation Systems (BAS) are essential for managing the complex systems in commercial and industrial buildings. They control everything from HVAC and lighting to security and energy management. But as technology changes, so do BAS systems. If you want your BAS to continue to be effective in the future, it needs to be future-ready. Partnering with Egan Company, your system will be ready for all of the changes to come.
Here are a few reasons why your BAS needs to be future-ready:
- Technology is constantly evolving: The technology that BAS systems are built on is constantly evolving. New technologies are emerging all the time, and it’s important for BAS systems to be able to adapt to these new technologies. For example, BAS systems are now beginning to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to improve efficiency and optimize performance.
- Building requirements are changing: The requirements for buildings are also changing. Buildings are becoming more energy efficient, more sustainable, and more secure. BAS systems need to be able to adapt to these changing requirements. For example, BAS systems can now be used to monitor and control energy consumption, track carbon emissions, and manage security systems.
- The needs of building occupants are changing: The needs of the people who occupy buildings are also changing. People are demanding more comfortable, healthier, and more productive environments. BAS systems can be used to improve comfort, air quality, and productivity. For example, BAS systems can be used to control lighting, ventilation, and temperature to create a more comfortable environment via improved occupant sensing without operator or user interactions.
If you want your BAS to continue to be effective in the future, it needs to be future-ready. Here are a few things to look for in a future-ready BAS:
- Open architecture: a future-ready BAS should have an open architecture that allows it to be easily integrated with new technologies. This will make it easier to adapt the BAS to changing requirements and needs.
- Scalability: a future-ready BAS should be scalable so that it can be easily expanded to accommodate new systems and devices. This will allow the BAS to grow with your building.
- Security: a future-ready BAS should be secure to protect your building from unauthorized access and cyberattacks.
- Ease of use: a future-ready BAS should be easy to use so that you can easily manage it. This will save you time and money.
If you’re considering upgrading your BAS, be sure to choose a system that is future-ready. This will ensure that your BAS can continue to meet your needs for years to come.
