Building Management System
Equipment management and monitoring
A building management system is a computerized system installed in buildings to manage and monitor equipment such as air conditioning, heating, ventilation, lighting, power systems, etc.
We remember that the hardware and software technologies of BMS were created in the 60’s. Over the years, the BMS IT infrastructure has grown organically and added layers of communication protocols, networks and controls.
A well-designed architecture of the building management system can lead to energy savings of up to 30%, as well as lower maintenance requirements. How? A BMS allows you to control and monitor all the electricity used to heat, cool and illuminate the building and the operation of its equipment. With this information in real time, you have the opportunity to respond quickly to changes in energy demand and reports on energy use over time.
We present you some advantages of the building management system
- Improve air quality and employees’ comfort – Building management systems can monitor and control air quality and protect occupants from harmful pollutants, gases and smoke.
- Adjust humidity and ventilation – BMS can reduce the costs of air conditioning and heating, making them more efficient. A BMS makes it easy to program the air conditioning in your building to operate at a different temperature on certain days and times.
- Adapt the lighting – turn off the lighting, air conditioning or heating automatically in unoccupied areas and at the scheduled time of day or night. Adjust the blinds and shutters to manage sunlight at the touch of a button.
- Ensure proactive maintenance – a BMS can help you identify when repair or maintenance is needed or prevent equipment damage before a crisis occurs.
