Building management systems (BMS)

Centralized management of heating, air, lights and security systems

The Building Management Systems (BMS) can consolidate the management of most low-voltage systems and components of the electrical system, but usually the efforts of the engineers are aimed at establishing centralized control of the heating, air ventilation and lights systems because they use much more energy. The control of these systems is done by a centralized software, installed on a main computer. This way of management saves time and efforts and it eliminates the need of an additional personnel for individual control of the different systems and devices.

 

Saving energy and other resources

One of the main functions of the BMS system is to provide monitoring in real time of all integrated systems. That means remote check of the stats of many devices, such as water gauge, electricity meters, etc., and also receive data from sensors for temperature, human presence, lights status (on/off) in the different premises in the building. After this data is analyzed by the BMS software, and after reckoning of the predetermined parameters the system will then execute the most optimal work mode for the main systems – heat, air and lights. In order to maintain optimal temperature in a room is important to take into consideration several factors, like the purpose of the use of the room, the current humidity and temperature, etc. The BMS systems can remotely control the lights in the building. This is done via an automated on/off schedule or by a signal to the operator for lights forgotten turned on in some premise. As a result energy waste is reduces for this room and therefore for the whole building. A well-designed BMS system can ensure up to 35% energy savings by optimizing the use of energy and human resources, which will impact the business in a very positive way.

 

Control of water irrigation, pumps, blinds, advertising electrical boards and other devices

Modern BMS systems ensure centralized control of different devices, such as water pumps, water irrigation systems, blinds, dormers, advertisement displays, etc. The control of these devices is done by schedule, or manually for achieving certain results for special events or tasks. The optimal control of the building systems significantly facilitates the work of the building managers, ensures optimal energy use and delivers the desired results for the business image.
