Digitization and networking bring opportunities, as well as challenges. A smart building must provide occupants and operators with an environment that’s not only optimized for comfort and efficiency but can also flexibly adapt to either group’s needs at any time. WAGO provides the best products and solutions to satisfy these requirements.
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?
The implementation of a smart building is demanding because it requires new methods and technologies, innovative networking and a modernized way of working together. In automation, the best solution is the one that is open and flexible. In planning and construction, communication is the alpha and omega. 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.
