A smart building is a structure which uses automated processes to control various building operations such as air conditioning, heating, security, energy management, and ventilation. Smart buildings are equipped with various types of smart devices and electronic components such as sensors, microchips, microcontrollers, and microprocessors to collect and process relevant data and manage it to control automatic operations of the building. This helps the facility managers and owners of the building to reduce energy use, increase comfort level, improve performance, enable optimal use of building space, and minimize environmental degradation. The increasing requirement for energy efficient buildings and favorable government initiatives towards smart infrastructure is driving the market growth. As smart buildings can monitor everything remotely from lighting and elevators to security and temperature of the building, they save a lot of power. Automatic and remote monitoring of such elements of the building reduces manual procedures, operating cost, and error in building systems.
