Building Management/Automation System.

Building Management System (BMS) Intelligent building, building automation systems are all computer-based control systems installed in buildings by BMS engineers to control and monitor the building’s extra low voltages (ELV) systems, mechanical and electrical equipments such as Lifts, ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems, and security systems. Building Automation/BMS engineers work hand in hand with other service specialists in HVAC, ELV, Mechanical and Electrical M&E fields. Technological development in this field has led to cheaper and scaled down new protocols systems known as Home Automation, Intelligent building, etc. A Building automation/BMS consists of software and hardware; the software program, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary, using such protocols as C-bus, Profibus, and so on, recently, however, new vendors are producing BMS that integrate using Internet protocols and open standards such as DeviceNet, SOAP, XML, BACnet, Lon and Modbus. BMS/Building Automation is a blend of hardware & software based control system installed in buildings to control and monitor the building’s extra low voltage systems, mechanical, electrical & other utility equipment.

Further developments and IT integration has led to Internet of things (IoT) which is the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded firmware or chip in electronic devices, Internet connectivity and other forms of hardware such as sensors makes up IoT. This technology enables these devices to communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and they can be remotely monitored and controlled. This is currently having huge application in building automation and or building management systems..

BMS may be used as a collective noun for a range of computerised systems including Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA) Disributed Control Systems (DCS) Outstation controller and Instrumentation. BMS may be deployed and managed centrally as a large network of system that may comprise different vendor products or as a low complexity stand alone system.
