5 Advantages Of Wireless Controlled Building Management

Wireless technology has been making its way to the surface of facilities management for some time now, proving beneficial for managing buildings as they increase productivity and management effectiveness. One great example of wireless technology that is an industry trend and has helped various sectors is the Internet of Things, also known as the IoT. 

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)  in building management? 

The Internet of Things (IoT) delivers live information transmitted in real-time for proactive asset management and maintenance, which is accomplished using wireless technology recording and data processing. Now you know a bit about wireless technology and the basics of IoT, let us look into how they can benefit building management.

1. Enables efficiency

It is no big secret that technology is far faster than humankind. Advanced software gathers, analyses, and stores data more accurately than ever, making up for little to no 'human errors.' With wireless technology, there is real-time visibility with your assets. As such, facility managers will be able to monitor their assets in real-time and respond faster to preventive maintenance or unexpected downturns. 

2. Simplified installation

Installation of wireless systems is fast and cost-effective since no wires are needed to be connected, tested and repaired, and they take up much less space than wired connections. With this in mind, there will be no potential problems or risks as wireless systems reduce surprises during construction, such as finding concealed impediments in walls and ceilings or discovering hazardous materials.

3. Increased flexibility

In addition to simplifying installation, wireless solutions continue to provide advantages throughout the life of a building by meeting customers' evolving demands. Sensors may be placed wherever needed and relocated whenever necessary. While it may not be viable to transfer equipment when substantial changes occur in an organisation, facilities management may reposition wireless controls with minimum expense and effort, making it simple to reorganise or even rebuild spaces.

4. Predictive maintenance

Wireless solutions, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), provide real-time asset monitoring, allowing you to foresee machine failure and identify parts that need to be replaced. You may schedule maintenance repairs, predict mishaps before they occur, and receive real-time notifications that allow you to respond promptly.

5. Dependable systems

Overall, wireless solutions provide increased dependability. Wireless sensor mesh networking offers numerous channels for wireless devices, whereas cable systems risk a single point of failure. A single point of failure in a wired-drive system might cause multiple devices to cease communicating due to a faulty connection or termination, making debugging difficult.


There is no doubt that wireless systems have changed how facilities management in various sectors work today, making the then labor-intensive tasks easy and the countless human errors almost perfect. As such, you must engage a reputable facilities management service provider to carry out your desired technological steps in managing a building.
