Building Automation for Facilities Maintenance 1

This course explains how building systems, such as HVAC, lighting, and security systems, can communicate information through a network of control devices. Emphasis is placed on these control devices and how they work together in common automation scenarios.

Topics covered include the operation, signal types, and functions of the sensors, actuators, and other control equipment used in automated systems in commercial buildings. The textbook is organized by building system, and the operation of each system is explained to clarify the function and application of each control device. This system-based foundation is then used to introduce typical interactions between multiple systems within a building.
