Building Management System
Building Management System (BMS), otherwise it is known as a Building Automation System (BAS), is a computer-based control system installed in the buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, heating and cooling system, fire systems, and security systems. This system consists of software and hardware. Depending on the system, BMS software can be installed as a standalone application or it can be integrated with other monitoring programs. More advanced BMS 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.
