What are the advantages of Smart Building and IoT? Conventional building automation vs. smart building assistant The term "smart" is on everyone's lips and is used almost inflationarily for everything that can communicate digitally in some way. But what is "smart"? What does it mean for buildings? And are smart buildings and infrastructures really more efficient and valuable than conventionally automated buildings? We explain.

What is a smart building?

Simply put: All of the building's communication interfaces converge centrally to recognise data correlations and are processed via a single point of information (such as Eliona) in a user-friendly manner and made available via UX.

1) On/Off. Isolated systems without control or analysis.

2) On/Off via app. Isolated systems with the ability to control their own behaviour and view their own data.

3) On/Off plus reading of data at a central location. Systems are still deployed in isolation, with integration between them, data extraction, data collection and analytics displayed in a central location.

4) On/Off with UX and bidirectional data exchange. Building UX defines the technology experience, systems are selected for their utility and contribution to the vision. Integration enables two-way communication, providing unified control in the building and via mobile apps, as well as centralised analytics.

5) On/Off with UX and bidirectional data exchange via central data gateway. Building UX defines the technology experience, devices are selected for their utility and contribution to the vision. Data Gateway communicates with a single layer providing a single building interface. Components are designed to be easily upgraded over time.
