Making the Most of your Building Automation System Construction and Planning
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer once indicated that most software users only use about 20% of a program’s features. This seems to be a common adage within the IT industry, although pessimists insist the 20% figure is too high. My experience with Building Automation Systems (BAS) makes me side with the pessimists. Most systems offer a wealth of features that are seldom used to their full potential. This is especially true when it comes to detecting and troubleshooting problems with mechanical equipment that are wasting energy and making people uncomfortable.
Alarms are probably the most misused feature in a BAS. Learn about ways to make the most of your alarm systems and use them to best advantage.
