Abstract: Transforming exciting cities into smart one begins with making buildings smart. Smart buildings are structures in which automated processes and devices are used to control and monitor building operations. A smart building combines a number of different technologies to automate building management. The smart building technology, which optimizes the energy usage between a building and the smart power grid, has become an important way to improve energy efficiency. This paper provides a primer on smart building.
