With an estimate of $225 billion by 2026, the connected building market, or smart building, is booming. The building sector is not immune to the upheavals caused by the Internet of Things. Smart buildings, home automation and artificial intelligence are gradually revolutionizing the construction industry. Buildings are becoming service platforms for the benefit of both users and operators.
The connected building or intelligent building is composed of multiple integrated sensors to collect and analyze data in order to improve the comfort of the inhabitants. Maintenance operations are also facilitated. This connected architecture, thanks to artificial intelligence, not only allows data to be communicated within the building, but also facilitates communication with external applications.
An intelligent building allows to monitor, control and modify in real time the technical equipment. For example, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, automatic watering, lighting, opening of doors and shutters, security, etc.
It is therefore concerned with optimizing the use of resources to reduce pollution and ensure the safety of users.
