All commercial, residential and industrial buildings have a lot of parameters which need to regularly controlled and monitored. Apart from comfort and convenience, such automation is essential for monitoring all critical parameters. This is achieved through a Building Management system also known as Building Automation system. All such systems can be connected to the internet and can be monitored and controlled from remote locations. Also, different buildings in different locations can be combined to a single system for central monitoring.

Automation system of different building can also be combined into one central system and easily monitored.
Some major parameters used in commercial buildings that require automation are heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, fire and smoke monitoring systems, access control systems, gas leakage monitoring system (Gas Sensors), light levels, presence and motion of people (utilizing Motion sensors and Presence sensors), water levels in tanks etc.
Protocols for Building Management System
The language used by various equipment to communicate with each other and transfer data in an automation system is known as protocols. There are various protocols supplied by our company for the building management system. Some of the most common protocols supplied by us are KNX, Modbus, BACnet and Lonworks. If you require to add any equipment in the current existing system the equipment also require to be of same protocol, however if not then KNX can be used which is an open protocol.
