Smart hospital buildings
Internet of things technology isn’t only beneficial in the operating room. Building automation systems for hospitals and laboratory facilities enable important cost savings that hospital administrators seek and the security all patients and their families expect.
Smart hospital – building automation systems
Smart buildings aren’t just for factories and warehouses. As a modern medical facility, you have an expectation from patients and the bystanders to utilise the latest technology in security and hospital building management. A lot of efficiency and cost savings are at stake if an efficient building automation system is not implemented.
Temperature and humidity controls are critical when it comes to critical medical procedures, medical devices, and even patient care. Access control, video surveillance, lighting, HVAC units, and other building management systems need to all be streamlined so that they may be easily monitored and controlled. Ripples IOT can integrate building automation systems for medical facilities who want to offer patients the best care and security on the market. Ripples can help you become a smart hospital your patients can trust.
Smart hospital – energy management
With a large area to maintain, finding ways to save energy around your medical facility can be challenging; especially with a commitment to excellence in patient care. Unplugging life-saving medical devices and equipment isn’t an option – but adjusting temperature and lighting in a large facility is one way to cut costs and save energy. A hospital building automation system connects all of the mechanical and lighting systems in your hospital and can adjust based on preferred settings.
Program lights to switch off when rooms are unused; set the temperature to adjust based on a room’s occupancy or requested temperature setting; schedule notifications for your maintenance team so that they know when a system needs repair, based on the usage All of these features and more don’t only save energy, they make your hospital “smarter”.
