Operational Systems are those that allow a commercial property to deliver its core purpose to one, or more, an end user groups. These can include owners, tenants, and/or retail customers. Common operational systems include Building Automation, Video Surveillance, Card Access, Emergency Communication and Lighting Control Systems.
Commercial properties often deploy systems to help manage and control energy costs. These can include heating and cooling control, solar array management, lighting control and scheduling, window shading to name a few. These systems often work in conjunction with each other to minimize the overall footprint of a property on the environment. Real time communication is often a critical part of this process.
The security of the physical property, and the end users within it, necessitate systems such as surveillance cameras, electrified door locks and card readers, emergency communication intercoms. In many cases, these systems communicate back to a central monitor station, either onsite, or at a shared facility.
