Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:
Yes

A brief description of the technology used:

Approximately 95% of buildings at UTSA are controlled by Siemens Building Automation System allowing for monitoring/control of electrical/mechanical systems; occupied/unoccupied settings adjust systems according to expected building occupancy loads; when buildings are known to be vacant systems are shutoff all together.
