Building automation comprises all components in measuring and control systems in a building or property for different building service disciplines. It enables the integration of the different disciplines as well as a common building management system.

The first test and certification procedures have been installed, and WSPLab and two other European laboratories in France and the UK are carrying out these tests.
Currently WSPLab's testing programme includes the following systems:
