Smart Buildings / IoT / BAS / AV
At Allison-Smith, we have expanded our Voice and Data services to cover all crucial aspects of advanced, smart building technologies, including:
- The Internet of Things (IoT): A network of physical devices, vehicles, appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, and connectivity which enable these things to connect and exchange information. IoT connectivity creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in both efficiency improvements and economic benefits.
- Building Automation Systems (BAS): The centralizing of control over a building’s lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, and other systems. These systems are streamlined and monitored through a building management system or building automation system (BAS). Objectives of BAS include efficient operation of building systems, reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, improved comfort, and improved life cycle of utilities.
- Audio and Video/Audiovisual Systems (AV): AV possesses both a sound and visual component, such as building video and audio surveillance, to maximize the safety, security, and efficiency of our clients’ buildings and spaces. We install video and voice conference systems that work and are easy to use; these systems can significantly reduce wasted time in meetings.
Our implementation of smart building processes is vendor neutral, so every solution is designed to provide maximum value to the building. The 40+ years of experience that Allison-Smith has with designing and installing low voltage cabling uniquely positions us in this market as a top provider.
