The development of smart buildings is shaping the future of our cities and the way we have to interact with technology. Only in 2022, the smart buildings They will have 483 million connected devices worldwide. An average annual increase of 33% over the 151 million connected devices installed in this sector in 2018, according to the latest Berg Insight report.

As a consequence of this trend, experts from Johnson Controls Building Technologies & Solutions have identified the five technological developments that will mark the market for Smart buildings in the next years:

  1. Behavioral prediction: According to MarketsandMarkets, the smart buildings sector will bill 105 billion in 2020, representing an average annual increase of almost 12%. A growth directly linked to the development of the IoT and the growth of Artificial Intelligence that is allowing a more intelligent use of the spaces in buildings. Solutions based on these technologies such as Central Plant Optimization (CPO) allow predictive controls to optimize the costs of building operations based on performance forecast, with the aim of always working at the ideal point of operation.
  2. Digital Cufflinks: This technological concept consists of the virtual replica of a product, service or process that manages to simulate the behavior of its physical “twin”. When starting the design of a building, the digital twin is capable of analyzing all the information generated from the building management system, data from HVAC systems, lighting, fire fighting systems, security, as well as data on building assets and the people who use it, such as tenants, occupants, building staff, visitors, and other roles. And it is that, according to Gartner, in 2021 half of the industrial companies will enjoy digital twins, helping them to increase their efficiency by 10%.
  3. Greater focus on people: The consolidation and standardization of smart buildings will be based, not only on the search for energy efficiency, but on the protection of people. One of the biggest problems suffered by large built environments over the past 20 years has been the “Sick Building Syndrome”, a term that describes situations in which the occupants of a building present health problems that disappear when leaving the building (headache, itchy eyes, nausea etc.) and that are the cause of poor air filtration and inadequate management of air conditioning. As a solution to these problems, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) control panels arise, which reduce unnecessary costs while guaranteeing the protection of the intelligent devices of the system.
  4. Energy efficiency: Currently buildings consume 47% of the energy in the world and approximately half of the energy expenditure comes from chillers, for this reason, maintaining the performance of chillers becomes an elementary task. In order to alleviate this problem, solutions such as the Smart Connected Chiller (SCC) have emerged. This solution allows a secure connection that sends all the data from the chiller to a highly secure database in the cloud, allowing, among other things, to proactively maintain the basic elements of the chiller, reducing energy consumption by up to 35%.
  5. Full integration: The buildings need a “brain” that allows a management of the subsystems that make up the building. This is where the BMS (Building Management System) comes into play, a systems management system that allows total supervision and control of the different parts of the building. This concept defines the comprehensive automation of buildings with high technology. Building automation systems are essential to achieve the highest energy efficiency, solutions that integrate HVAC, lighting, flow, elevators, security and fire protection on a single platform. And in this way gather all the necessary information to be able to make smarter and safer decisions, and at the same time, increase the comfort, safety and productivity of the occupants.

“Technological development is not only changing the way we communicate with each other, it is also transforming the way we understand our environment. Our buildings are becoming smart zones in continuous learning ”, in the words of Alberto Vales, director of the Smart Buildings division of Johnson Controls.
