| Overview

A zone schedule is a combination of schedule durations and desired temperatures for a particular zone in the building. The Zone schedule is like the child schedule to the building schedule. On any particular day the zone schedule, which includes the schedule duration and desired temperatures, must always fall within limits that are set under the building schedule. Once a zone schedule is set the zone would start following the zone schedule, and when a zone level control equipment like a damper and variable frequency drive would act based on the set zone schedule, thus reducing the load on the system level device (AHU/RTU) to a considerable extent.
