    • Definitions range from single to complex: - “A BAS System” (Higher Ed Participant) - “Real time controls, classroom technology, ease of use, knows when it has problems, networked, continuous monitoring, real-time data, ‘a building that works and cooperates with occupants in a bright and easy way.’ Building where systems are completely integrated to provide a comfortable and safe environment. Lacks complexity. Using the building as a living lab to let students learn from it in FM programs; Time and class use scheduling into EM controls.” (Higher ED Participant)
