Integration of energy management systems into existing buildings brings in several challenges and financial constraints. Some of the challenges in the existing smart building solutions are that they require large-scale deployment of sensors, high rate of data collection, real-time data analysis in short span of time, and lack of knowledge about the energy usage with respect to the behavior of individuals and groups. This work proposes an affordable wearable device system as an alternative for large-scale deployment of sensors in industrial buildings. For effective energy management in the buildings, a personalized behavior analysis has been done in machine learning and neural networks algorithm and integrated with the proposed system. The complete system is implemented and tested extensively. The results show that the proposed system could provide 85% user comfort and 23% energy savings.
