Wireless Control Systems for Smart Buildings

LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Wireless Control Systems for Smart Buildings

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2307742/Wireless-Control-Systems-for-Smart-Buildings.html

Proprietary Wireless RF, ZigBee, EnOcean, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, Bluetooth, and Other Wireless Protocols for HVAC, Lighting, Fire & Life Safety, and Security & Access Control Systems

While building automation and controls have been used for decades, wireless is becoming the catalyst for enabling more granular and immediate control over building systems. Wireless controls offer economic benefits due to the savings in labor costs for installation and maintenance compared with wired systems. The ability to install sensors and devices in buildings that cannot easily be torn apart to put in wiring (such as historical buildings) provides savings in costs, as well.

Wireless controls can be used to link devices found in a variety of building systems, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, fire & life safety, and security & access. The use of wireless local networks in consumer and commercial environments has increased dramatically over the past decade. In particular, Wi-Fi technology has enabled users who found traditional networking too costly or complicated to quickly connect existing devices. Yet, although many proponents of wireless technology cite the advantage of being able to easily position and reposition devices, building owners and managers remain skeptical about reliability and security. Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue from wireless nodes for building controls will grow from $84.8 million in 2013 to $434.0 million in 2023.

This Navigant Research report examines the state of the global wireless building controls industry with a focus on commercial buildings and four system types: HVAC, lighting, fire & life safety, and security & access. The study provides an analysis of the market drivers and opportunities, as well as technical challenges, related to wireless building controls. Global market forecasts for wireless node unit shipments and revenue, broken out by region, wireless technology, system, and device, extend through 2023. The report also examines the development of both propriety and standards-based wireless technologies and provides profiles of key industry players, including lighting controls vendors, wireless controls solutions providers, and enabling technology suppliers.

Key Questions Addressed:
How many wireless nodes will be deployed in the global wireless building controls market through 2023?
How will annual unit shipments of wireless nodes vary by region, wireless technology, and system and device type?
What types of devices are likely to be wireless?
Which building functions or applications will benefit the most from wireless controls?
What are the primary wireless technologies used in wireless building controls installations around the world?

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
