There are a lot of ways to manage buildings. You can hire an engineer or pay an HVAC company to handle all your systems and equipment, but that doesn’t really give you a lot of control over how they work. A Building Management System (BMS) is the best way to manage multi-scaled building environments, such as offices and large complexes. BMS systems help you control energy usage by providing better oversight into how the building is running at any given time.

1. What is BMS?

Building management systems (BMS) are the control systems for various building systems. They can be installed in small offices or large complexes, and they’re used to control lighting, HVAC and other building functions. A BMS can be used to monitor sensors that track energy consumption, as well as security cameras or other devices.

A BMS can also be used to manage multiple buildings from a central location via a secure web platform or mobile app. This allows you to monitor all your facilities from one place–and make changes as needed!

2. Why use BMS?

BMS is a software system that monitors and controls the building’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. A BMS can be used to reduce energy consumption, increase operational efficiency and improve occupant comfort by optimizing the performance of each individual component.

3. How does a BMS work?

A Building Management System (BMS) is a centralized system that controls multiple systems in a building. It monitors and controls the HVAC, lighting and fire alarm systems.

A BMS is an integrated system that monitors, controls and optimizes building systems.

4. Q-NEX technology for BMS

Q-NEX focuses on providing a centralized control and management  platform for classroom equipment. By integrating AV over IP technology, Q-NEX enables campus-wide AV broadcasting and live streaming.

As the core of Q-NEX solution, the NMP all-in-one centralized control device integrates functions of LAN switch, power relay, AV matrix, digital amplifier, wireless mic, serial/IR control modules and networked AV decoder. It can connect not only AV equipment like speakers, projectors, interactive displays, but also other electric devices such as lamps, fans, air conditioners and curtains. Under the Q-NEX platform, all these devices can be centrally controlled. 

With versatile interfaces and flexible customization, Q-NEX NMP can also be integrated with HVAC, lighting, security and fire systems. Therefore, Q-NEX technology can be part of an entire building management system for campuses, realizing integrated management of the whole campus.

5. BMS is the best way to manage multi-scaled building environments

A Building Management System (BMS) is the best way to manage multi-scaled building environments, such as offices and large complexes. It’s also used to control and monitor systems like lighting, air conditioning, security and fire alarms.

A BMS can be thought of as a building’s central nervous system; it links all elements together so that your entire operation runs smoothly without you having to micromanage every single part individually. This saves time and money on maintenance costs but more importantly helps keep people safe by ensuring systems are working properly at all times

Conclusion

A Building Management System (BMS) is the best way to manage multi-scaled building environments, such as offices and large complexes. When you install a BMS in your building, it will automatically control all the systems that make up your building’s infrastructure: heating and cooling, lighting, security cameras, etc. This means less work for you as an owner or manager! For Q-NEX technology, the versatile interfaces of NMP and flexible customization of Q-NEX platform make it possible to connect to the heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, security, fire, and other systems for integrated control. For more information about BMS in Q-NEX technology, please contact us here.
