This review presents an overview of the existing state-of-the-art practices of improved performance in buildings required for the algorithmic logic and/or hardware. The main focus is on sensor-actuator-based applications in intelligent buildings like air quality, lighting, heating/cooling, ventilation, power management, water management, cooking gas management, and building health monitoring. The following are some of the major factors that usually rule in the development of intelligent buildings, such as good accuracy of the system, energy efficiency, response time of the sensor module, cost of the overall system, radio frequency interference, adequate signal-to-noise ratio, open interface capability, and intricacy of computation. The importance of the concerned issues and factors are discussed in detail for future research directions.
