A Building Management System (BMS) is a computer-based system that is used to control and monitor the mechanical, electrical, and other technical systems in a building. It is designed to ensure the efficient operation of the building’s systems, while also providing a safe and comfortable environment for occupants. BMS systems are typically used in commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings, such as office buildings, hospitals, universities, and government buildings. They can also be used in residential buildings, such as apartment complexes and condominiums. The BMS system is composed of a variety of components, including sensors, controllers, and actuators, which are all connected to a central computer. The sensors collect data from the building’s systems, such as temperature, humidity, and air quality, and send it to the central computer. The computer then uses this data to control the building’s systems, such as the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, lighting, and security systems. The BMS system also allows building operators to monitor the building’s systems remotely, and to make changes to the system as needed. By using a BMS system, building operators can ensure that the building
