ABSTRACT
The article reports how a series of building upgrades in California saved money and jobs. Smart building technology collects and analyzes data from multiple in-building systems like sensors and energy-saving lighting in order to spot problems, optimize operations and schedule maintenance. The technology requires a big investment prompting parties like Siemens and Johnson Controls to set a performance guarantee or seek funds from agencies like the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act program.
