If you are someone who is a property manager or who is in the business of building management in any respect whatsoever, then you will probably know that there are many benefits to having a building management system (otherwise known as a BMS) or a building automation system (otherwise known as BAS) built into your smart building. I think some people don’t really realize the many pros to having a BMS or BAS along with automated logic in their buildings. They just don’t understand how integrated building automation can help make their lives and their businesses so much easier and more profitable. Some of the additional benefits of a BMS or BAS include increased operational savings to your building, electrical power monitoring systems which greatly increase your building’s energy efficiency, and the reduced risk that comes along with building analytics installation and mission critical system design. Not only that, you can remotely monitor your smart building without actually having to have staff on site! Think of all the money you could save that way. I am a huge proponent of today’s smart buildings and I think that we could all benefit if most of today’s business world could just get on board with the whole idea of BAS and BMS in their buildings. It could save all of us a lot of time, money, and trouble. The benefits of having a building management system or building automation system far outweigh any risks or start-up costs that you might incur when you’re first getting started on your smart building. It’s definitely worth the start-up cost.
