Mechanical multi-function buttons in intelligent building installations as a way to reduce electricity consumption
Faculty of Economic and Technical Sciences, Pope John Paul II State School of Higher Education in Biała Podlaska, Poland
This article aims to show the possible energy savings in intelligent building installations due to the use of programmable mechanical multifunctional buttons. Two monostable buttons were placed, the pressing of which triggered the entire sequence of programmed actions and procedures. The consumption of electricity from the period before and after the assembly of the buttons was compared. The measured effects of using the buttons have shown that the energy consumption has decreased by approximately 7.5 kWh per month. The low installation costs and benefits resulting from the use of such a solution make it a cost-effective and a very convenient solution.
