In this term paper we explore the possibilities of enhancing the user comfort and operational cost of smart departmental store providing range of methods for maximum utilization of resources. We present a utility-based departmental store that can detect human interventions in every aisle and automatic control system that make adjustments based on conditions such as occupancy, daylight availability assurance as well as ensuring considerable energy saving. Moreover, the wide array of products and services of departmental store require greater emphasis on maintenance of temperature and humidity and confirming the protection and contamination of the products. Thus, the features of stabilizing temperature with the aid of varied sensors helps to monitor the betterment of the entire environment. The buildings which are designed currently do not use building control strategy that may incorporate occupant level comfort as well as meeting operation goals in an efficient manner. Hence, we propose an intelligent lighting control strategy aided with maintenance of external factors by humidity and temperature and PIR motion sensors and Graphical User Interface (GUI) all of which help significantly reducing energy usage and operational cost, whereas maximizing daylight harvest and user comfort.
