Get inside the Building Automation System: Your building’s brain.

About this event


The central hub of your building that tells equipment what to do, the same way your brain tells your hands what to do, is the Building Automation System (BAS). Did you know the BAS can provide benefits in three key areas: environmental, comfort, and financial? Join us as we take a look at modern commercial BAS basics including architecture, networks, controllers, programming tools, and user interface. You will discover how to evaluate and select a BAS that meets your needs. We will also make sure you are up to speed on the latest BAS trends including ASHRAE guide 36, automated fault detection and diagnostics, mobile applications, and even IoT-based BAS. You will leave with an understanding of how a BAS can help your building be greener, more user-friendly, and less expensive to operate.


  1. Describe Building Automation System (BAS) components, system architecture, and network.
  2. Explain the basic steps in specifying a BAS.
  3. Define basic procedures in comparing and selecting BAS.
  4. Discuss the recent trends and new development in BAS.
