Custom Home Automation Software and Smart Building Solutions Development

Home Automation and Smart Buildings are two domains which are quite close in technological meaning. What is more, both of them have huge market potential with CAGR 11.3% and 11.7% (see 1 and 2). The industries will grow in the next few years, being core buildout drivers for both residential and commercial real estate. Today, Home Automation and Smart Buildings markets combined have a size of about $130 bln.

What Home Automation and Smart Buildings
Are, and What Can They Bring to Business?

Smart Home Automation

Smart Home Automation is a variety of IoT-based hardware-in-the-loop solutions. They all aimed at automated control of different aspects of residential real estate: air conditioning, power supply, lighting, heating, ventilation, electronic door locks, CCTV, security, and others.

It covers, as well, connected home appliances, and multimedia entertainment systems. Such a machine-driven control not only helps to simplify the everyday life of tenants and improve their experience but also to save substantially on power and water supply.

Smart Buildings

Smart Buildings have quite similar meanings but are tied mostly on commercial real estate or large-scaled residential real estate like hotels. Lightings, elevators, access, power supply, and other systems can be controlled fully automatically, making such a building extremely efficient.

Operational service teams in Smart Buildings are much smaller which drastically increases profitability of facilities. SB is also attracting the best regional tenants who are ready to pay more for the most prestigious offices, apartments or rooms in hotels.

Cut Down Maintenance Costs

Automatic sensors, controlling some areas of their responsibility 24/7, are far more efficient yet cheaper than the employees doing the same.

Increase Tenants Satisfaction Rate

Smart buildings provide their tenants with an incredible experience of total control and top-class maintenance. What is more, they become even more loyal, getting lower bills thanks to high efficiency.

Decrease Power Consumption Expenses

There are many areas with the differentiated power tariffs, several power suppliers, or with ability to produce power and sell excesses. All benefits in such areas can only be available with smart automation.

Lower Downtimes Frequency and Duration

Machine health is also a part of Smart Building systems. Controlling vibrations, noise, and energy consumption of equipment, it is much easier to make unexpected downtimes almost nonexistent.

Boosted Security Level

CCTV systems are usually based on the recording of recent events. Image recognition features can add some extra utility value: people counting, facial recognition, authentication by face, parking availability info, etc. Pairing it with electronic locks and motion detectors, and automatic alarms can make any building highly secure.

Sustainable
and Eco-friendly

Smart Automation systems make buildings not only cost-cutting but also more eco-friendly. Lower power and heating consumption are quite trending and make the ones more demanded.
