A hot topic in the sustainable building, lighting, and energy industry in the last several years has been network Building Automation Systems (BAS).These BAS’ control the HVAC systems, lighting systems, access control/security, and processes within a building or complex.Up until recently, many of these systems were independent of each other and there were very minimal industry standards used to make them all “talk” to each other. Technology advancements in recent years on standards such as Z-Wave, EnOcean, and ZigBee as well as industry standard adaptations in BACnet have now opened the door to much more products that will integrate and talk the same language. In this technical session, we will cover the basics of systems on the market and the potential that these systems can provide. We will go over the main pros and cons of trying to install or retrofit a system like this into your building. We will have some recent examples of lighting controls projects that had similar integration or were setup to allow future integration as other building systems are upgraded.
