What’s a Smart Building?
Building automation is simply connecting all the functional elements (Lights, HVAC, CCTV cameras, etc.) of a residential/commercial building to a network, and configuring them to proactively take contextually relevant actions. For example, a smart building can sense parameters like temperature, humidity, smoke, etc., and automatically trigger an alarm. Or, it can sense the presence of an intruder, take their picture and notify the security personnel.
While home automation is more about active control of functional elements in your home, building automation concepts are directed towards saving energy, optimizing resources and reducing down-time. Our core expertise lies in laying down the technology stack for residential/commerical spaces, configuring the hardware, and providing active support for the designed use-cases.
All building automation solutions offered by Skyward Solutions are retrofit, which means you won’t need to change the existing wiring layout in your building to turn it into a smart building. It all happens in the background, without you even knowing it’s there. Just like…. magic.

Automate water management.
Using advanced water level sensors and relays, you can completely automate water management i.e turn on the water pump when the water level is low, and automatically turn it off when the level is high. No human intervention required.
Keep an eye on every floor.
Using our advanced IP PoE cameras, you can keep an eye on every floor, every building across your residential/commercial campus. You can pass on access privileges to residents in the building, so that they can give a visual confirmation on visitors and monitor their home from anywhere in the world.
