The Bulding Management System or « BMS » refers to the electronic control and management system(s) for professional buildings (small businesses, warehouses, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, etc.). The term “Bulding Management System” is used in the same way as “home automation” when referring to a house.

BMS, how does it work and what is it for?
Thanks to sensors and actuators located on the various elements installed (e.g. a shutter), you can automate and manage your “batches” via a management interface (a screen). This system will facilitate the management of your building (energy, heating, air conditioning, etc.), improve its security (breakdowns, water leaks, intrusion, etc.), increase the reactivity of your teams and allow you to save energy.
Example of Use Case
You own offices and want to save energy.
Increase it a few minutes before the arrival of your employees
Let the sun preheat the premises in the morning
