Any commercial building regardless of its scale can take advantage of the unique features offered by HDL automation solutions.
For a commercial building of any type one of the key considerations in the implementation of an automation system is the cost savings that may be achieved.
In an average commercial building lighting and HVAC account for around 70% of the total energy consumption. This enormous percentage represents a vast amount of capital, as well as a large detrimental environmental impact.
If HDL automation solutions are used in a commercial building energy savings of at least 30% can be made. This would in due course result in substantially reduced operational costs, and enable a considerable reduction in the buildings environmental impact.
These savings can be made by HDL automation systems through intelligent control of lighting, HVAC, and blinds/shutters. As an example:
- If a particular area of a building is not in use then automatically the HVAC, and lights will deactivate.
- If the internal temperature of a building is too low, the HVAC is activated automatically, and the blinds/shutters that face the sun are retracted.
A HDL commercial automation solution requires minimal user interaction, to put it simply we make the building management process automatic.
When a system is automated is becomes efficient, effective, and faultless. If the system detects an abnormality, it can relay the information to the end-user instantaneously. This can be done via txt message, email, or via an Android or iOS device which can control the entirety of the system.
Even though the concept behind a commercial automation solution is one of cost savings, the security solutions that can be implemented should not be overlooked.
HDL provides a range of sensor modules that can detect security breaches, and at the same time notify the relevant authorities. From glass break detectors and window sensors, to PIR and ultrasound sensors a HDL solution can provide a building with a total security solution.
