Commercial building automation for winery

I bought a very small building and I do a seasonal business. Well, I work on my wine making all year around, but the doors are open to the public only in the fall. Before it was such a pain trying to keep the HVAC and humidity levels right for when. I constantly was driving up to my winery and checking on things. I had batches go bad when the heater went out in the middle of the winter. I also worried about theft due to there being no security system. Since my business started doing well, I began looking into commercial building automation. I found that I could link lights, security cameras, HVAC, and temperature control all through one control pad that I can keep an eye on through my phone. I have the HVAC set to control the wine temperature year around. It either turns on heat or air depending on the temperature. I also have a smart thermostat that sends me alerts on the temps and air filter changes. I have the lights on a timer to turn on when I should be walking in the winery and to turn off when I leave. The outdoor lights are all automated so that anyone who thinks to walk in will be lit up. The camera also begins rolling at the first sign of movement. It is sad that in today’s day wwe need so much security. For me I was looking at it for more of the energy management side. I save so much money now that I have the right HVAC levels when I need them.
