Wireless Control Systems for Smart Buildings

LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Wireless Control Systems for Smart Buildings

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2307742/Wireless-Control-Systems-for-Smart-Buildings.html

Proprietary Wireless RF, ZigBee, EnOcean, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, Bluetooth, and Other Wireless Protocols for HVAC, Lighting, Fire & Life Safety, and Security & Access Control Systems

While building automation and controls have been used for decades, wireless is becoming the catalyst for enabling more granular and immediate control over building systems. Wireless controls offer economic benefits due to the savings in labor costs for installation and maintenance compared with wired systems. The ability to install sensors and devices in buildings that cannot easily be torn apart to put in wiring (such as historical buildings) provides savings in costs, as well.

Wireless controls can be used to link devices found in a variety of building systems, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, fire & life safety, and security & access. The use of wireless local networks in consumer and commercial environments has increased dramatically over the past decade. In particular, Wi-Fi technology has enabled users who found traditional networking too costly or complicated to quickly connect existing devices. Yet, although many proponents of wireless technology cite the advantage of being able to easily position and reposition devices, building owners and managers remain skeptical about reliability and security. Navigant Research forecasts that global revenue from wireless nodes for building controls will grow from $84.8 million in 2013 to $434.0 million in 2023.

This Navigant Research report examines the state of the global wireless building controls industry with a focus on commercial buildings and four system types: HVAC, lighting, fire & life safety, and security & access. The study provides an analysis of the market drivers and opportunities, as well as technical challenges, related to wireless building controls. Global market forecasts for wireless node unit shipments and revenue, broken out by region, wireless technology, system, and device, extend through 2023. The report also examines the development of both propriety and standards-based wireless technologies and provides profiles of key industry players, including lighting controls vendors, wireless controls solutions providers, and enabling technology suppliers.

Key Questions Addressed:
How many wireless nodes will be deployed in the global wireless building controls market through 2023?
How will annual unit shipments of wireless nodes vary by region, wireless technology, and system and device type?
What types of devices are likely to be wireless?
Which building functions or applications will benefit the most from wireless controls?
What are the primary wireless technologies used in wireless building controls installations around the world?
