A smart building is integrated with various automated processes working together to control, monitor and regulate vital building systems including HVAC, lighting, power, utility use, access control, fire alarm and closed-circuit cameras. Building Management System (BMS) communicate all these systems with one another and carry out complex instructions based on the current state of various subsystems. This type of communication requires software and hardware that can monitor, coordinate, and control the building’s network.
At GILA Electric we understand how technology is impacting business operators and their facilities, not only by improving but also by creating better buildings that are smarter, more efficient and more economical to operate.
GILA Electric provides Schneider BMS system which allows you to remotely monitor and control the building power, air condition system, lights, and safety in an easy way.
Nowadays, banks are beginning to utilize the latest security technologies to ensure the safety of their employees, customers, and assets. There are a number of ways to enhance your bank’s security system, ranging from high-end, round-the-clock video surveillance to fire alarm systems to access control systems that provide secured access to important areas of the bank.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is one of the most important security measures in any financial facility. An efficient CCTV system covers all areas, avoiding any blind spot, and serves as a means of deterrence and a live recording of all the happenings on the premises, it can be also equipped with face recognition feature.
CCTV cameras also are equipped with head-vision that can count the number of people in the bank to identify crowdedness and give alert to take the appropriate measures to facilitate the work.
Electronic Access control enables you to control who has access to the facility. You can set the parameters allowing and disallowing employees from accessing after hours, or accessing to sensitive areas unless they are permitted to.
Employees can use proximity swipe cards to access with ease and convenience, while biometric credentials provide enhanced security for locations requiring additional protection. The ACS provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets.
Banks and other financial buildings are usually constructed in a way that their geometry is complicated including corridors, secure vaults, storage cupboards alongside with office spaces and cubicles so it requires an efficient, advance and capable system for fire detection and suppression.
GILA Electric offers both addressable and conventional fire alarm systems through our alliance with Esser by Honeywell and Fire Class by JCI company.
Wiring devices are current-carrying electrical or electronic products that serve primarily as a connection or control point for electrical circuits within a range of 0–400 amperes, 0–600 volts (AC and DC).
Wiring devices include a wide variety of items and appliances such as power outlets, wall plates, switches, dimmers, time switches, sensors, lamp holders, electrical boxes, plugs, connectors, and more.
In 2014, GILA Electric concluded a partnership with Schneider Electric to offer solutions for wiring devices and accessories including but not limited to
Wiring devices include

A UPS is typically a backup electrical power source used to protect hardware such as computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause serious business disruption or data loss that is why it became the most important equipment in the banking sector.
A UPS unit can provide a working backup power source for a required duration after main power failure to ensure the continuation of the operation and proper storage of all information. It also acts as protective equipment against brownout and power spikes.
Since 1985, GILA Electric has been the authorized partner with Schneider, to distribute the VL Galaxy, C-series and Easy UPS Modules.
