Improving Your Business With Commercial Automation Solutions
Define Individual Systems That Integrate for Greater Efficiency
When you have an integrated commercial automation system in your Denver, CO business, you can get more done while saving on expenses. But not all systems are created equal: your business is unique, and your technology should reflect that. Think of your integrated devices like members of your staff: each device works independently, but they each work together as part of a larger team. The result is a system that runs as smoothly as a well-oiled machine. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the different roles some of your connected devices can play in improving your business. Read more after the jump.
It’s no secret that a network is the backbone of your smart automation system. Whether you want to remotely dim the lights or you simply need to access the server, your network plays a big role in just about every aspect of your business. That’s why an efficient network is absolutely essential to strong performance. But what happens when you have a customer-facing business? Customers have come to expect things like Wi-Fi when they spend time in your establishment. You can serve them well without giving them access to control all of your integrated devices by setting up different password-protected Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs). Each SSID can have different security settings, so you can give your guests access to one and have staff work on another.
In the same way that each device works with the others to make a single team, each component can also work as part of a different department, or “ecosystem,” to help ensure success. For instance, you can enjoy an audio video system that comprises your AV and distribution technology, as well as a lighting system that consists of lights, shades and even HVAC. Below we break down few of the common groupings. Environmental: This group is usually made up of the lighting, shading and HVAC. They work together to not only give you one-touch controls over the device (for instance, one command and you raise the shades and dim the lights) but also keep track of your usage to give you meaningful data for future energy savings. Audio Video: The AV system can include everything from video displays to the sound system. However, it can also include the lighting and shading. If you’re starting a presentation, one touch will have the lights dim, the shades lower and a connected projector start. Security: Security can be everything from surveillance cameras and smart locks to environmental sensors such as fire detectors and HVAC connectivity that flushes out any harmful chemicals the sensors detect. Your business deserves a system that works hard to improve it.
