Emergency functions like smoke extraction remain the priority through the automation.
Additional energy savings can be made by adding automation to our solutions (natural ventilation, sun-shading…) to optimize their operation.
Automation limits human interaction to free the user from daily interaction and ensures indirect comfort to the user.
To control the different equipment, we need to install appropriate components (temperature, motion, rain sensors etc.), which will consider inside/outside conditions and be connected to the automation system to trigger actions specific to each solution (open / close of vents, partial or complete sun-shading, artificial light on or off, etc.).
The analysis of the occupants’ needs will be translated into thresholds and limits to the automation system to regulate the building and define the scenario solutions must play.
To obtain the results from the study phase, the sensors and other accessories must be installed so they can measure room/outside temperature, CO2 levels, humidity or light level (Lux) in a room.
Once the minimal light level defined (number of Lux = measurement unit for light brightness: Lux/m²), according to the type of activity, this solution will operate the artificial light system to complete the natural light inputs if the latter is not sufficient.
Depending on the seasons, periods of the day or the building’s exposure, natural light levels may not achieve the necessary number of Lux required. Gradation of the artificial lighting system will then complete it with the minimum necessary and will save unnecessary energy consumption. Even though we do use artificial lighting systems, the solution remains ecological and efficient.
Automation will optimize the natural ventilation system performance in the building, without the need for human interaction.
The different natural phenomenon (rain, outside temperature, CO2 level) are all considered by the automated system thanks to different types of equipment (sensors, probes, and controls), which ensure comfort inside the building day and night.
Automation of the adiabatic cooling system, which let cool air inside the building, will offer a better management of the solution (humidity level inside the building, temperature in the room and outside, etc.) via sensors and equipment, and optimal performance.
The adiabatic cooling system will simply let new air inside the building (mechanical ventilation), whenever the system doesn’t require cooler temperatures (according to the limits set in the automation). The automation system will then ensure an optimal comfort in the building and increase the energy savings according to the user’s requirements.
Although, it is important to note that such solution must be associated to vents on the roof, which can be also automated, in order to depressurize the building and let the warm air evacuate.
Sun-shading equipment on the roof and/or on the façade can be automated to optimize the benefits following the sun course.
Such automated solutions are mobile brise-soleil or electro-chrome glass.
By deflecting direct and indirect sun rays, the sun-shading equipment will limit the overheating and glare effects in the building. According to the users’ needs, the concealment can be partial or complete.
We limit human interaction while optimizing comfort by automating the solar inputs in the building.
