Building Controls and Energy Management Systems
This guide focuses on building controls and Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) for facilities management professionals.
A BEMS is a computer-based approach to measuring, monitoring and managing the performance of building services such as heating, ventilation, air-conditioning,lighting and security. A BEMS coordinates the operation of various systems in the building such as boilers, air handing units, fans and others. It gathers data from sensors such as light detectors or sensors that track occupancy, temperature, pressure, humidity or occupation within occupied areas of the building to create and retain a comfortable indoor environment.
