Building Automation

Building Automation is defined as the automation of buildings intended for public use, excluding hotels. Schools, offices, shopping centers and airports represent the contexts in which automation best expresses its potential in terms of energy saving, ease of management and safety. This technology does not belong to the future, but it is a well-established reality, essential for multiple applications. We have always paid great attention to comfort and user safety, obtaining international recognition. We are sure we can find the most suitable solution for you tooThrough our experience at Widomars, we are committed to proving that there is no one size fits all brand, technology or device that is ideal for each situation.

What can building automation do for your facility?

Lighting control

Lighting automation with special sensors regulates the intensity and switching of the lights according to human presence and ambient light conditions, thus optimizing the energy consumption. This not only reduces your energy bill but also improves the visual comfort of the occupants. Furthermore, an intelligent system can adjust the temperature of the color of the lamps, reducing visual stress. Automation can decrease the energy consumption for lighting from 20% to 60%, depending on the effectiveness of sensors and control systems implemented.”

Management of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)

The regulation of temperatures and internal air quality through KNX systems ensure an always comfortable environment avoiding overheating or overcooling of the spaces. Before the arrival of the users the systems go into comfort mode and when the users
are absent for more than 15 minutes the system goes on pause. Automation of HVAC systems can reduce energy consumption by 20% to 40% through optimized regulation of heating and cooling, and by 10% to 30% by improving ventilation efficiency. This not only cuts energy costs but also improves comfort and sustainability
of the environment.

Automation of awnings and shutters

Automated systems for curtains and shutters improve thermal comfort and contribute to reduce energy costs. They can automatically adjust according to solar intensity, minimizing the need for artificial air conditioning and making the most of natural light.of the environment.

Intuitive user interface

Intuitive user interface: KNX systems allow maintenance workers to access everything’s data the building directly from your PC or smartphone, eliminating the need for manual inspections
wells, panels or inaccessible rooms. This facilitates the maintenance process, reduces the necessary technical personnel and ensures rapid notification of lamp malfunctions,
of the HVAC system or various alarms. Furthermore, friendly user interfaces, such as touch panels screen and smartphone apps, allow occupants to easily customize the environmental settings, improving user satisfaction and facilitating interaction with
the building.

Energy management

Building automation allows you to monitor and manage energy consumption in real time. This thorough check allows you to identify and correct inefficiencies, such as
equipment that uses too much energy or spaces that are heated or cooled when not necessary, leading to more sustainable management of resources.

Integration with other systems

KNX systems are designed to interface effectively with a wide range of protocols and management systems, such as Modbus, DALI, DMX, BACnet, and alarm control units or BMS (Building
Management Systems). This compatibility allows centralized and harmonized management of different functions and devices within the building, from lighting control, to climate regulation, up to safety and energy monitoring. Benefits include smoother operation, better coordination between different technical systems and an increase
in energy efficiency, resulting in an optimized and safe environment that responds dynamically to user needs and reduces overall operating costs.

Environmental sustainability

Implementing building automation solutions contributes significantly to the objectives of sustainability, reducing the environmental impact of buildings. This not only helps you comply with
increasingly stringent environmental regulations but can also improve the public image of the building, making it more attractive to tenants and visitors.
