Building Management System (BMS)

A building management system is a computer-based control system which oversees all the equipment installed in a building. The BMS can control all types of equipment, such as the power supply, lighting, ventilation, lifts and escalators, etc. Different types of data are collected, including measurements (temperature, operating time, etc.), states (on/off for a machine, position, etc.) and alarms (malfunction, overrun, etc.).
