Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

California State University Channel Islands uses virtual timers in the Building Automation System (BAS) to control hours of operation. A BAS is a computerized, intelligent network of electronic devices, designed to monitor and control mechanical and lighting systems in a building. The timer can schedule normally occupied time periods, temporary occupancy periods and also “off-schedule” time periods for holidays.
During the off-schedule periods, building heating and ventilation will not run unless the temperature for the spaces reaches lower and higher temperature limits. The net result uses less energy and is more effective in maintaining correct temperatures during the occupied time periods.
