BMS(Building Management System)

A Building Management System (BMS) is a control system that can be used to monitor and manage the mechanical, electrical and electromechanical services in a facility. Such services can include power, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, physical access control, pumping stations, elevators and lights. Traditional BMS consists of servers, supervisory devices, field buses, controllers, inputs, and outputs. They are also known as Building Automation Systems (BAS).

A BMS connects the HVAC and different building equipment to work as one integrated unit. Ideally, they should centralize operations and make data easier to visualize using a user interface or console. BMS has evolved into a series of incompatible components and impenetrable architectures. Their correct use saves 30% of the energy bill, but they are only present in 15% of large and upscale buildings due to their cost and complexity.

Depending on the system, BMS software can be installed as a standalone application or it can be integrated with other monitoring programs. More advanced BMSes can monitor and manage a wide range of building services across multiple platforms and protocols, providing facility administrators with a single, shared view of the facility’s operations.

We break through chaotic infrastructure with our IoT connectivity solution and provide access to the BMS to all buildings operators. Wattsense allows small and medium-sized buildings to create a BMS network and access their equipment by removing technical complexity. Providing quick access to BMS data helps companies deliver higher technical staff efficiency, increase building occupancy comfort, and significantly decrease energy and carbon footprint.
