What is Building Management System (BMS)?


Also known as Building Automation System (BAS) or Building Management and Control Systems (BMCS) are controller networks that use intelligent microprocessors and are installed to monitor and control services and technical systems of a building such as air conditioning, ventilation, lighting and hydraulics.


BMS is able to achieve this by taking the individual pieces of the building equipment and linking their functionality so that they can operate as one integrated system.


BMS systems can be operated onsite or remotely. For remote operation, since modern BMS is based on open communication protocols and is WEB enabled, therefore this allows the user to access from any location in the world.
