Smart building technology investments typically pay for themselves within one or two years by delivering energy savings and maintenance efficiencies, says Dan Probst, the chairman of energy and sustainability services at Jones Lang LaSalle.

“In large buildings with centralized building automation systems, relatively inexpensive devices can be connected to the building control panel to enable a smart building management system to extract and analyze real-time equipment and system performance data and use it to fine-tune building performance," he says.

In smaller buildings that do not have centralized automation systems, the availability of affordable wireless sensors combined with this new smart building technology makes it possible to deploy a building automation system without the expense of hard-wiring, adds Probst.
