Integrated controls can help environment and costs says BTAT
Integrated building controls and infrastructure can help manage costs and environment issues
Systems integrator BT Applied Technology (BTAT) is calling on organizations in the region to update building controls systems to integrated IP-based networks to improve environmental management and cut costs.
Speaking at the Smart Buildings Expo in Kuwait last week, BTAT business development director Issam Abounasr said that integrated control systems could bring a number of benefits to enterprises and to SMBs.
"Integrated systems have many positive spins in terms of cost savings and reducing environmental impact. By unifying the control of various systems within a single control unit, operational costs are significantly reduced, efficiency is improved, safety and security is increased and resources, such as energy and water, are conserved," said Abounasr.
"Through integrating ICT systems infrastructures we seek to reduce environmental footprint and save costs across various sectors, he added.
