BIoT takes the concept of the Internet of things and applies it to all parts of a building that can be connected to a network/Internet. The result of using IoT in Building Management are Smart Buildings and, in turn, entire Smart Cities. Some of the goals of BIoT are an increase in building efficiency, a reduction of energy consumption, an ease in daily life for residents, as well as an optimization of financial performance.
As examples, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning), lighting or security equipment can be applied more efficiently and cost effectively.
Some examples for BIoT use are:
- Management of lighting systems for buildings
- Pre-programming for heating and air conditioning
- Monitoring and control of energy consumption
