With the concept of 'intelligent building' gaining ground in India, real estate developers are vouching for automated building solutions that combines low operational costs, technology and innovation with skilled management to maximise return on investment.

Cashing in on the real estate and retail boom, Siemens Building Technologies, one of the market leaders in automated building solutions, has come up with solutions to manage all utilities and facilities in a building.

The group operates as a systems engineer for total solutions including turnkey systems, as well as manufacturing products for distribution.

Siemens Building Technologies' core competence is combining building automation and building safety and security with the efficient operation of buildings throughout their lifecycle, said company sources.

According to information available on the company website, perfect building services technology requires appropriate system tailoring during planning, installation, and commissioning.

For example, office buildings with central heating have completely different needs than hotels with air conditioning and changing occupancy.

Again, administrative buildings differ from schools and universities. The company therefore offers optimal control solutions for any requirement, even as a subsystem of a building management system.

For building operation and control, the company offers heating controllers, optimised for various applications in small, mid-size, and large buildings. It also offers room controllers for individual room comfort.

The switching sensors from Siemens Building Technologies cover the entire range of applications, whether for particularly strict conditions in clean rooms, laboratories, isolation stations, or for less sensitive HVAC ((heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning) applications. These include frost protection monitors, pressure monitors, presence detectors, air quality controllers, etc.

Under building security, the company offers intrusion protection, fire detection systems and video surveillance, for people and objects.

The company designs alarm system, for object of all sizes, with detectors, control units, arming facilities, and sirens. Other accessories such as emergency power supply, overvoltage protection, distributors, and dialling devices, also come supplementary.

Maximum detection security and immunity against false alarms are the trademarks of the company's fire detection technology, with easy-to-install fire detectors, comprehensive fire detection systems and alarm control units. This range also includes exchange and replacement parts for all devices.

The CCTV products range from small surveillance systems to complex crossrail systems, to a combination with other security systems such as fire and intrusion detection technology.The company also supplies the accessories needed for installation, operation, and maintenance of the CCTV system.
