Building Automation System

Building automation systems represent technological infrastructures developed to increase the functionality and efficiency of modern buildings. These systems bring together a building’s lighting, heating, ventilation, security, energy management and many other components and integrate them under a single central control platform. Installing building automation systems in hospitals, shopping malls, schools and factories provides investors with operational excellence as well as other advantages such as comfort, efficiency and sustainability.

Essentially, building automation systems combine a number of technological elements including sensors, control devices, data communication protocols and software applications. These elements are integrated to monitor, analyze and control the building’s various systems.

The basic components of these systems are:
Sensors and Sensors

Sensors positioned inside and outside the building monitor temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2, light, motion and other environmental variables. This data helps the building automation system make decisions and optimize systems.

Control Devices and Actuators

Based on data from sensors, controllers and actuators control and manage different systems. A thermostat can control heating or cooling systems, while a motorized valve can regulate heating or cooling flow.

Communication Protocols

Different communication protocols are used to communicate between different components of building automation systems. These protocols may include wired or wireless communication technologies and generally follow a certain industry standard.

Central Control and Software

The central control unit, which functions as the brain of the building automation system, analyzes data from sensors, makes decisions and manages the systems. This controller is usually programmed and provides remote access through special software applications.

Building automation systems offer many advantages such as energy efficiency, user comfort, security and savings in operating costs. Additionally, thanks to data analytics and reporting features, it provides building managers with a detailed view, optimizes maintenance planning and improves decision-making processes.

With its references and over 20 years of experience, Ges Teknik applies Building Automation Systems to the technological infrastructures of Modern Buildings. These constantly evolving systems will become even more complex, faster and more efficient in the future, contributing to the reduction of the operational Carbon Footprint and increasing the functionality and sustainability of buildings. As Ges Teknik employees, we are proud to be a successful player of this setup that takes care of Nature and the Environment.
