Communication networks are used to effectively manage and control building facilities. Using a wireless channel in building automation systems would result in several advantages, including reduced installation cost and eased placement constraints on the transceivers, as well as the introduction of flexible extensions and mobile device connectivity. Recently, ZigBee was adopted as a BACnet wireless channel by both BACnet and ZigBee organizations. This paper proposes an efficient energy… CONTINUE READING
