Building Automation Systems (BAS)

Building automation is defined as a programmed, computerized network of electronic devices that monitor and control the energy consumption of buildings. The intent is to create an intelligent building and reduce energy and maintenance costs. In commercial buildings, most fire-life-safety, lighting, air conditioning, and ventilation systems are automated to manage energy consumption.

This has created a strong and sustainable demand for Building Automation Service technicians that will continue as long as energy remains a limited commodity.
