In Asia, integrated systems are changing how buildings are managed and delivering improved tenant experiences.
In much of Asia, estate and infrastructure managers are taking advantage of new technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) that work with enhanced building management systems (BMS) to monitor and enhance the experience in buildings and installations.
What these modern systems bring is real-time intelligence to operators to make important decisions. Proactive monitoring can help prevent downtime, for example, in lifts and air-conditioning systems while conserving energy by smartly switching off the lights in hours after work.
Underpinning this transformation are robust and reliable systems that deliver performance and security without requiring complex setup. In this three-part series, we explore how infrastructure operators in both the government and commercial sectors are taking advantage of the latest technologies to transform their operations.
Smart building management systems to prevent costly downtime
Each time something goes wrong at an office, a data center or a critical infrastructure facility, the result can vary from the slightly annoying to the highly disruptive.
In this first of three parts, we explore how today’s building management system (BMS) are helping to reduce the risk of downtime. By connecting the various subsystems in a building today, these modern setups are a departure from the siloed offerings of old.
From restricting access to only credentialed persons to controlling the air-conditioning and lighting in a building, they are making a difference by improving building management and enhancing tenant comfort.
