New ARC Advisory Group research on the Access Control Systems market reveals that wireless technologies for buildings are maturing, with many suppliers now marketing wireless solutions. Wireless technologies exist, or are being developed, for use at many levels to improve existing applications and enable applications that were previously cost-prohibitive. The fundamental impetus for considering wireless sensors and controls for building automation applications is to lower wiring, design, and planning costs. The cost of laying down wire is not insignificant in either a commercial or an industrial building automation project.
“Considering the labor costs of running wires, the cost of the wire itself, and the additional cost of the required fire- and smoke-retardant materials, suppliers estimate that one-half of the cost of a building automation project relates to the physical wiring. In addition, adoption of wireless technologies will help in remote location monitoring and sensing capabilities to offer maintenance personnel a new and more efficient way to monitor building equipment and locate failed equipment without the need for building diagrams,” according to Eapen Jacob, Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Access Control Systems Global Market Research report.
