The era of digitalization applied to smart home & smart building allows, through the information collected, to make decisions and at the same time control remotely.
The Smart Buildings Concept is applicable to all types of buildings, such as homes, hotels, hospitals, offices, banks, museums, etc. Both for its rehabilitation and for a new construction, by adding connected systems equipped with sensors, actuators and layers of SW for analysis, computing and user interface capabilities.
We can say that there are two main approaches in the digitization of smart homes and buildings; On the one hand, digitize everything that is not digitized in our houses or buildings, such as adding sensors or connectors. And on the other hand, start from scratch with the integration of the entire building completely.
Intelligent building automation systems provide centralized control of a building's heating and cooling systems, lighting, entry access, and other capabilities through a building management system.
It should be noted that digitization brings many benefits, both for users themselves and for companies. It makes life easier for users with the comfort provided by remote control or because of its efficiency and cost control among others.
At the same time it generates new business opportunities, for example supply companies (water, electricity and gas), enhanced the monitoring and control capabilities of their systems.
But also young and innovative companies like Alfred Smart became consolidated players in this market. https://www.alfredsmart.com/
