SmartAE’s system operates similarly to the human body, with a ‘central nervous system’ made up of sensors and the building management system. These continually monitor the facility’s environment and control its functional ‘organs’ – whether they be lighting, HVAC, power and so on.
Just like the human nervous system, SmartAE’s system operates via a network of sensors feeding back real-time information to the Building Management System (BMS).
Like the brain, the BMS computes and processes these signals, generating a quantitative understanding of the facilities’ changing environment.
SmartAE responds to these data readings and pre-programmed instructions with precision adjustments, sending signals via controllers to the building’s electrical and mechanical equipment. This constant fine-tuning achieves ideal conditions at optimum energy efficiency.
SmartAE also continually monitors the overall health of the system, generating detailed diagnostics to identify issues, trigger predictive maintenance and ensure long-term reliability.
SmartAE’s system is controlled via dashboards customized to each stakeholder. Building managers can set energy targets and comparisons, clearly seeing where improvements can be made on an ongoing basis.
