Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jan2008, Vol. 80 Issue 1, p42
The article focuses on the use of wireless technology in building-automation systems. It is deemed that the use of wireless technology could be cost-effective and non-disruptive in monitoring and maintaining building-automation systems and the building occupants' comfort and security. The technology can enable faster installations and easier maintenance and can be used for existing-building retrofits in which extensive demolition or rewiring would be required.
