How Artificial Intelligence is Reshaping HVAC Efficiency

Traditionally, HVAC control within building automation systems has relied on rule-based systems and human programmed schedules.  These systems, while effective, leave significant room for further optimization.  The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) offers...

Wireless Sensor Networks and the Impact on HVAC Monitoring

Traditional building automation systems have often relied on a relatively sparse network of wired sensors to monitor temperature, humidity, and perhaps a few other basic parameters. Wireless sensor networks are disrupting this model, enabling the deployment of far denser arrays of sensors,...

How Building Automation-HVAC Integration Improves Indoor Air Quality

Traditionally, HVAC systems within the context of building automation have focused primarily on temperature control for occupant comfort. However, the growing awareness of the profound impact of indoor air quality (IAQ) on health, well-being, and cognitive performance is driving an increased...

Protecting HVAC Systems within a Building Automation Network

In modern buildings, the HVAC system is rarely an isolated entity. Building automation systems (BAS) integrate HVAC components with an array of sensors, controllers, and a central management platform — all connected through networks. This interconnectivity provides significant benefits in terms of optimization and control but also introduces crucial cybersecurity vulnerabilities demanding careful consideration.


HVAC Systems as Targets

While it might not be the primary objective of attackers, HVAC systems within a BAS network present...
