Building Management System (BMS)

If you want to reduce energy expenses, optimize building equipment performance, enhance occupants' comfort, or comply with national directives, taking control of your building is key. A BMS installation or retrofit is the quickest, simplest, and most cost-effective solution, regardless of your building's size or age.

What is a BMS ?

A Building Management System (BMS) is a computer system installed in a building that will communicate with the building's equipment. Allowing its owner to monitor and control its installations and systems, such as air conditioning, heating, ventilation, lighting, alarms, access control or energy supply management systems (electricity, gas, solar panels, smart meters etc.)

How does it work?

Daily, building management systems (BMS) allows to :

  • Control the different systems of the building (via the measurement of the HVAC, the air quality, the humidity level, the noise pollution, etc.)
  • Manage the energy consumption of a building
  • Monitor in real-time and schedule operations
  • Set up management of breakdowns and alarms
  • Produce data reports

Building Management Systems allows operators to optimize their equipment's use and have a global vision of the performance of their building.

Set up or renovate a BMS quickly and at low cost with the Wattsense Solution

Traditional bms solutions are outdated, expensive, and often unsuitable for most buildings. The complex nature of these systems requires costly service providers to set up and maintain them. However, IoT and smart building technologies offer a modern and affordable alternative for small and medium-sized buildings.

At Wattsense, we break through chaotic infrastructure with our IoT connectivity solution and provide access to the BMS to all buildings operators. The Wattsense allows small and medium-sized buildings to create a BMS network and access their equipment by removing technical complexity.

We have developed a cost-effective and easy-to-deploy building management system solution that communicates with many protocols (LoRaWAN, BAC net IP, Modbus IP, Modbus RTU, M-bus, LON, KNX, LPB, and Diematic). Our solution allows to connect and communicate quickly with all the equipment and systems in a building, even old equipment that was previously not connectable with building management systems. Our solution provides for the local conversion of their data so that it can be read via the interface of our management system, an existing BMS, or other third-party applications.

We designed this building management solution to simplify BMS so you can view and monitor your building remotely through a single interface.

Why implement or retrofit a BMS?

Buildings consume 40% of the world's energy, and a management system in a building ensures that this energy consumption is minimal.

A poorly configured BMS, or no BMS at all, typically results in 10-30% more energy consumption in a building.

That's why BMS are becoming the norm around the world. By 2025, building automation control systems (BACS) such a building management system will be mandatory in all commercial buildings in the EU.

The challenge for the building industry, from property owners to facility managers, is to equip themselves with a BMS that can be quickly installed and configured to comply with these regulations in the shortest possible time.

Add value to your building with the Wattsense solution

Save energy

Our next-generation BMS solution helps improve the environmental impact of your buildings. Quickly deploy Smart Building applications and software to enhance equipment performance, optimize operating costs and reduce your energy bill.

Energy management applications and software can significantly reduce the energy consumption of buildings. However, integrating these applications and software with the building's BMS is a real obstacle to implementing such solutions. Our solution works as an intermediary software (an abstraction layer) on top of the existing infrastructure of the building BMS system so that the building can use the best energy management software.

Keep building occupants comfortable

Easily control air conditioning and heating thermostats and correct temperature control failures in a building management system that cause discomfort and frustration for occupants.

Many buildings, even those of recent construction, are plagued by temperature control problems that can be absurd. New, flexible, and affordable building management solutions like ours are changing the lives of millions of people and improving occupant and visitor satisfaction.

Optimize maintenance

Reduce maintenance and repair costs by helping facility management companies or technicians remotely monitor and control your building's equipment.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems highly demand service quality. Several times a year, they need preventive or corrective maintenance, and our solution allows technicians to assess and resolve any problem quickly and remotely.

Participate in the control of energy demand

By optimizing your heating and cooling needs, you will have a highly positive impact on the electrical grid and global energy demand without disrupting the operation of your facilities and buildings.

Power grid operators must balance the demand and supply of electricity. The transition to renewable energy sources is a historic global challenge for them. While traditional energy sources (gas, coal, nuclear, etc.) are supplied relatively stable, the volumes linked to renewable energies are very variable, leading to much more significant fluctuations in supply.

Energy demand management is a proven solution to reduce the need for energy consumption when supply cannot keep up. It reduces the power grid size while maintaining service continuity during peak demand.
