A Building Management System (BMS) are computer-based monitoring and control systems installed in large buildings that oversee the building’s mechanical, electrical equipment and security systems. This may include Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning (HVAC), lighting, energy, audio-visual (AV), fire systems, and access control and other systems. A Building management system typically comprises of one or more computer systems that may communicate with sensors, controllers or other systems using protocols such as OPC, Modbus, BACnet, DeviceNet, SOAP, XML, LonWorks.

The purpose of the BMS is to simplify monitoring, control and management of the building services to provide a safe and comfortable environment whilst also being energy and cost efficient. Building Management systems are commonly deployed in larger buildings, which may have substantial electrical, mechanical or HVAC systems. In any green building, the BMS plays a pivotal role in managing the facilities energy consumption and demand. Around 70% of building’s energy consumption can be managed more effectively through a Building Management Systems. In addition to the improving energy efficiency of the building, the BMS may also be linked to other systems such as Access Control, CCTV, Fire etc. to improve security monitoring and provide better operational efficiency.

At interactive i/o, we have commissioned several building management systems that process thousands of inputs on a daily basis. Our experience and knowledge of the fundamental principles of system architecture allows us to specify, design and develop the necessary components for successful integration projects. Understanding how your hardware works and may be interfaced with intelligent software is key to achieving engineering excellence in any integration project. With our knowledge of hardware and software platforms we can deploy a BMS for your building that provides simple and efficient management of your facility from a central or distributed system – that also allows better energy efficiency, cost reductions and early fault detection.
