Greater Awareness and Construction of Modern Edifices Stir Demand for Building Automation Systems in Hong Kong

Given that thousands of buildings are equipped with separate lighting, security, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, there is a strong demand for sophisticated controls to incorporate these complex applications. Automation and integration of all equipment functions represent the most significant area of advancement within the building technology arena. "As end users are realizing the benefits of reduced resource consumption, increased safety and security, and enhanced occupant comfort, there is growing interest for building automation systems (BAS)," cites the analyst of this research service.

Building owners are increasingly adopting innovative web-based paradigms in building operations to meet the needs of the new generation of computer savvy occupants. They are also looking to offer control systems that conserve energy, while providing satisfactory performance. Some participants are incorporating Microsoft Windows-based operating systems to make control software programs more familiar to end users. Future growth of this market is likely to stem from the ability of this technology to lower energy and operational costs for the building owner.

Open Protocol Systems Can Help Participants Rise Above Interoperability Issues

Hong Kong has world-class infrastructure, offering superior building services, which is now attracting many e-commerce related businesses. Apart from this, the increased competition and influx of ideas from neighboring Shanghai and Beijing have made many property owners and developers see great opportunities for theme parks and leisure projects that would add tremendous value to their traditional properties. However, interoperability poses a challenge, as very few end users have the option to upgrade expensive building systems completely to ensure equipment and communication languages match.

To overcome this hurdle, industry participants are utilizing open protocol systems, which allow building control technologies to support and manage different networks from a common front-end workstation. "Compatibility among diverse components is expected to reduce the amount of labor required to install new equipment," explains the analyst. "This, in turn, will lower up-front costs, allowing greater profitability for control manufacturers and added value for end users."
