Developing Smart Buildings with WAGO

Smart Building

What is a Smart Building?

A “smart building” describes the automation and central operation of technical equipment in commercial buildings, like office buildings, airports, shopping malls, or manufacturing facilities. Both security and optimized energy efficiency are fundamental issues that smart buildings address. Current projects demonstrate that automation can reduce the energy consumption of an office building by up to one third.

What Does Smart Building Mean for WAGO?

WAGO is an established partner ready to guide you through the world of digitization so that your building adapts to your needs – not the other way around.


A smart building must have an explicit added value for the user.
