Large enterprises, be they retailers, hospital systems, or commercial building operators have to deal with building schedules. The doors have to lock and unlock, the lights come on and off, the air conditioning turns up or down, and much more.
Most facilities managers for these large operations have a few choices. Rely on the "feet on the street", the local facility manager, hammer it out on their building control interface, maybe one at a time, or pay a service provider loads of money to program and maintain the schedules for them - IF they provide plenty of notice. These solutions work pretty well when the schedule doesn't change that much, but what happens during holidays, new floor sets, cleaning and maintenance, school closures, etc.?
