Water consumption in buildings depends on how users operate current mechanical taps and mixers.

Some models add improvements like presence detectors, self-closing systems or flow limitation, offering some uncontrolled and partial solutions , unable to be adapted to water and energy consumption needs in buildings.

Most of energy consumption related services can be controlled and managed through smart grids. Current solutions (scada, automation, building technologies, etc) allow users to manage both natural and artificial lighting, air conditioning, alarms, accesses, curtains, blinds, appliances, etc.

BNSTAR is the tool for enabling the application of these technologies into the building water supply network by providing intelligence to processes and allowing service parameters control, saving strategies implementation, consumption optimization, misuse prevention, faults detection, water and energy demand identification and so many others outlined in:
