POE - Building & Home Automation

The concept of building and home automation, involves integrating all of a facility's systems into a centrally controlled network with IP-based structured cabling. Smart buildings provide several benefits, including improved safety, reduced labor and operating costs, simplified asset management and energy efficiency. The growth of this market is driven by the increase in demand for energy-efficient systems, the growing need for automation of security systems in buildings, and advancement of IoT in Building Automation Systems (BAS).

Building Automation Systems leverage the convergence of low-voltage building systems with an Ethernet network and IP addressable devices throughout the building. With an Ethernet network, all of the smart building devices can be connected to the network and powered by the same network cable. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows system integrators or network administrators to deploy powered devices at any location, regardless if a site has electrical outlets. The devices connected to the PoE network in a smart building include:

  • Access control, ID card readers, Parking gates etc
  • CCTV cameras
  • Wi-Fi access points and routers
  • Synchronized clocks
  • Electronic signage and emergency messaging systems
  • Thermostats and HVAC controls
  • Intelligent LED Lighting

How does PoE work?

PoE refers to the use of the same wires that are part of a structured IT network for the delivery of electrical power. This enables a single cable to provide both a data connection and electrical power to PoE devices, such as wireless access points and lighting, PoE adapters, PoE switches and PoE ports, phone systems, PoE cameras and LED lighting. Connecting smart LED lighting/sensor hubs to the LAN delivers valuable future-proofing by enabling the installed LED hubs to quickly support and take advantage of technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) without additional, expensive retrofitting replacement requirements.

Benefits of Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Beyond any considerations of cost and efficiency, light fixtures powered by PoE can be paired with sensors, wireless communication modules, and embedded processors in smart hubs. With a Power over Ethernet smart building platforms, building designers can capture the benefits of a structured cable system while still layering on protocols.

For electrical contractors, this smart building technology offers a wealth of opportunities to streamline building automation, enhance building efficiency and provide value-added expertise and services. PoE technologies and PoE devices are delivering cost savings, easy installation, and enhanced flexibility to projects of all sizes.
