Abstract
The future smart building must have both fine-grained sensing and control over all of its subsystems. Such a smart building will be able to save energy while maintaining equal or superior quality of service for building occupants. We have designed such a smart building architecture that combines sensing over the building processes and actuation ability. Our system is able to monitor environmental values such as temperature, occupancy values, IT information, and electricity usage across plug-load devices. On the actuation side, our system is able to control HVAC across the zones in a building, the plug load devices, and the IT infrastructure. Using the sensor data and actuation ability, our system can optimally control the building in order to save on wasted energy.
