Reduce Commercial Energy Costs with Smart Energy Management

November 8th, 2019

If you own a commercial building, then you are probably already well aware of all the advantages the right security system has to offer. But have you stopped to consider how you can use your security system to help control your energy costs as well?

Managing and reducing your commercial energy costs can have a significant impact on your organization's bottom line. Below, you will find a few more of the ways you can reduce commercial energy costs with smart energy management.

Smart Technology

This kind of automation allows people to take control of their energy usage by employing a number of different smart energy-saving strategies.


When you have smart lighting in your commercial building, you will have access to controls that allow you to turn lights on and off and schedule them to do so at any time during the day or night.

This kind of system can be controlled wirelessly and is often integrated with your existing security system, so it is easy and more convenient to control and manage. Everything can be controlled through web-based dashboards.

Climate Control

With your system, you can also get smart thermostats. This will help you control both your heating and cooling costs and can help manage your energy usage. It also helps the system work more efficiently.

Water Allocation

When you have a smart sprinkler system in place, you can plan a more effective watering schedule for the lawn of your commercial property. This allows you to reduce your water waste and helps you understand proper sprinkler positioning and evaporation.

Limit Costs Due to Disasters

Smart technology not only helps prevent break-ins and other crimes from occurring on your commercial property, but it also helps limit the costs due to disasters as well. If there is a fire, the smoke detectors and fire alarms that are linked to your smart system will automatically alert the fire department and authorities. This fast response helps limit the damages.

Flood sensors are also great to have. Even a small leak in a commercial building can cause thousands of dollars in damage. However, when you have flood sensors in place, they can easily detect the presence of a leak or even a change in the moisture levels in the building. When this happens, you will be immediately notified.

Bottom Line

Operating and managing a commercial building is a big responsibility and comes with its own lengthy list of tasks that need to be completed and prioritized. One of those tasks is the technology and security system you choose to put into place to add that extra layer of protection for your building and all those inside.

Not only will the right security system save you money because of theft and vandalism and other criminal activity, but you will also find even more savings when it comes to finding better and smarter ways of managing your energy and other resources as well.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
