Building automation is simply connecting all the functional elements (Lights, HVAC, CCTV cameras, etc.) of a residential/commercial building to a network, and configuring them to proactively take contextually relevant actions. For example, a smart building can sense parameters like temperature, humidity, smoke, etc., and automatically trigger an alarm. Or, it can sense the presence of an intruder, take their picture and notify the security personnel.
While home automation is more about active control of functional elements in your home, building automation concepts are directed towards saving energy, optimizing resources and reducing down-time. Our core expertise lies in laying down the technology stack for residential/commerical spaces, configuring the hardware, and providing active support for the designed use-cases.
All building automation solutions offered by Skyward Solutions are retrofit, which means you won’t need to change the existing wiring layout in your building to turn it into a smart building. It all happens in the background, without you even knowing it’s there. Just like…. magic.
With a smart building, you can elevate the collective lifestyle of residents, while saving energy, streamlining workflows and reducing operational costs. For instance, think about how much energy you can save by intelligently turning on lobbly lights only when a person is around. Or think about how much damage you can prevent by getting instant alerts in case of emergencies like fire, flood or burglary.
The advantages of investing in a smart building infrastructure are often realized after prolonged use, which is the reason they are adapted by less than 1% of real-estate developers in India. However, with residents getting more tech-savvy and technology getting more affordable (Moore’s law), we would soon see a multifold increase in the adoption of smart building technology in India.
Turn the lights off or dim them to a minimum, when no one’s around. Get the lobby or basement to light up when someone passess by. Using the simple automation hack, residential/ commercial spaces can save up to 80% energy.
Our innovative building security module keeps track of alarm systems installed in every flat/shop of the residential/commercial building, and proactively notifies the central security cabin when an intrusion is detected.
Provide restricted parking access to residents by using RFID-based entrace systems. or even better, allow them to enter their private parking spaces by simply pressing a button on their smartphone. No keyfob required.
Prevent damage before it happens. Install fire, smoke and flood sensors across your building campus, and get instant notifications in case of emergencies. You can even configure proactive damage control by automatically turning off power or gas supply during emergencies.
Using advanced water level sensors and relays, you can completely automate water management i.e turn on the water pump when the water level is low, and automatically turn it off when the level is high. No human intervention required.
Using our advanced IP PoE cameras, you can keep an eye on every floor, every building across your residential/commercial campus. You can pass on access privileges to residents in the building, so that they can give a visual confirmation on visitors and monitor their home from anywhere in the world.
