How Does Automation Work?
While at first this technology may appear overwhelming, it is not as complicated as one may think. Once a professional installation team, such as ourselves, has hooked up the system the rest is fairly straightforward. Essentially, every automation system is controlled by an easily programmable ‘coordinator device’, which is basically the system’s brain. The coordinator device is controlled by a smartphone or computer which the business owner communicates their commands through. The coordinator device then receives these commands from the smartphone or computer and transmits the message to, for example, the indoor lighting system, which turns the lights on. business owners can program their devices to operate on established schedules and timers, or can control their system manually from their smartphone or computer.
Automation Saves Energy and Money
If you are looking to save on energy costs for your Menlo Park area business, then perhaps a smart building system may be the right option for you. Automation systems allow business owners to easily control their daily energy usage, so that when a resource is not needed it can simply be turned off. Energy and water management systems can save business owners on annual energy costs, which is not only good for consumers but is also beneficial to the environment. Smart thermostats, sprinkler systems, and water heaters can all be used to cut energy costs in a business.
