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

A brief description of the technology used:
Our centralized Building Automation System (BAS) allows us to program night setback temperatures in many of our buildings. This is done by programming the controllers in a specific building to change their space temperature setpoint at a specific time of day. So, for example, a building with an occupied setpoint of 70 degrees during the day might be allowed to cool down to 65 degrees between 6pm and 6am before the heating system would turn back on. Both the temperature and the time can be remotely adjusted from our centralized energy management center.
