Building automation system for wine facility

About eight years ago, I started making wine, but my family has owned and operated vineyards for four generations, then our grapes have traditionally gone to make commercial jams, jellies and juices, however because my buddy and I grow a Concord grape, no one was especially interested in attempting wine! I started playing around with weird ways of extracting the juice and fermenting and have managed to create a tasty rose and green wine! As my product has gained popularity, I’ve gotten licensed by the TTB, invested into a building and steadily produce more and more wine! The margin of profit is slim.

There are large start-up costs involved with necessary equipment and bottles, labels and caps.

I need to operate my business efficiently as possible. I am always looking for ways to reduce time, effort and expense that isn’t directly related to making wine. Incorporating a building automation system has been a large help, essential systems are now incorporated into a centralized hub that is accessible by way of my smartphone. At any given time, I can check on the temperature of the building and make adjustments. This is especially helpful because of the importance of maintaining the indoor environment at a constant 64 degrees year round. In my local area the temperature climbs into the mid nineties and drops well below zero. If there is a temperature swing or a power outage, I get notified. The building automation system includes motion-activated lights and surveillance cameras that increase security. I have real time access to video of the exterior building, and if an alarm sounds, I gain an alert. Another beneficial feature is the automated door locks. There are times when I need to allow a UPS professional to enter the building and chance up a shipment of wine when I’m not available. Through my PC, I’m able to unlock and lock the doors from virtually anywhere.
