A Building Management System (BMS) or Building Automation System (BAS) is a computer-based control system installed in buildings to controls and monitor the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting and power systems. Your fire and security systems could also be integrated into your BMS software to give you complete control of your systems .
The efficiency of your building is key to controlling running costs. Building Automation allows you to ensure you are only using your heating, lighting and power systems when required through automation, with some systems allowing the ability control your systems remotely from anywhere through your mobile device.
Utilising infra-red movement detectors in conjunction with photocells to ensure that lights are only on when it is dark. Timed schedules can be set so the lights will come on when you’re not in or be used at a pre-determined low level in
Setting your heating to come on and off within certain temperatures in conjunction with sensors that determine whether someone is in the room or not. It can be set to turn off if a particular door or window is open therefore to not waste energy.
All individual power sockets can be controlled remotely or by timed schedules so that specific electrical appliances can be switched off at night or when the room is empty.
