Overview of product or service
A BMS is an easy to use and customisable solution where one can monitor all building systems and adjust to ones needs. Driven by IoT, this solution centralises the control of a building’s air-conditioning, ventilation, heating, lighting, heat pumps and other utility systems. By comparing real-time measurements to pre-set markers, the BMS can automatically detect and quickly react to changes. With the end-user’s objectives in mind, the automated system works in the background, eliminating the need for daily input by personnel. The IoT-driven BMS also collects and stores all energy-related data. The secure data can then be viewed at any time by authorised personnel, giving the client comfort and peace of mind.
Value added features and benefits
An IoT-driven BMS system achieves various benefits namely:
Reducing energy costs
The economic benefit is a major reason why companies and governments are exploring IoT. Various efficient ways can help the industry to better control spending and eliminate waste. These include smart metering, monitoring of power in real-time, and data-driven predictions.
Reducing carbon emissions
On a daily basis, the need to reduce carbon footprint is ever-increasing, reflected by recent laws and regulations. IoT-based energy systems help companies to reduce their carbon footprint by maximising resource-efficiency and automatically measuring the environmental impact to help pinpoint issues.
By making use of IoT-based monitoring systems, producers can automate on-site asset management and improve maintenance operations. Rely on power consumption data to automate dynamic pricing calculations
Reducing operational expenses
A BMS system effectively reduces operational costs. In fact, such systems reduce time and effort spent on energy analysis, reporting, and calculations by 60%. The BMS solution also enhances the lifetime of electronics and appliances, reducing the need to replace them every few years.
Future updates and implementations
As buildings continue to develop and evolve, so will technology. Already we have seen a vastly different job description for Facility Managers, completely overhauling their day-to-day duties in some cases. They have access to key records and can manage their building’s infrastructure from wireless devices or even their smartphone or tablet. In the future, this technology will continue to adapt and advance resulting in all management being done fully remotely. Facility management is set to be armed with more information than ever before.
