HVAC technology combines a variety of topics: from general communication standards in building technologies, the role hydraulics plays in heating and cooling, room automation, lighting and shading technologies to the functionality of sensors and their proper installation and adjustment. We consolidate knowledge for technology buffs and experts alike and provide useful content from a variety of sources.
The communication protocol BACnet was specially developed for the requirements of buildings. It is suited for both the automation and the management level. The emphasis is placed on building automation with a view to HVAC plants, fire control panels, intrusion detection and access control systems.

See our Siemens BT reference cases, about HVAC technology e.g.
…properly designed lighting strategies can save 30-60% of lighting energy?
…commercial buildings contribute to almost one fifth of the overall energy consumption in developed countries?
