BAS/BMS Integration

Building Management/Automation Systems (BMS/BAS) are interconnected networks of hardware and software that provide a single point of control and monitoring a workplace, commercial or industrial facility. BAS/BMS integration with eFACiLiTY® provides smart automation for the facilities enabling monitoring and controlling of various sensors/equipment/assets to improve the building operations. It manages various building systems ensuring the operational performance of the facility as well as the comfort and safety of building occupants.

  • Building Management System

eFACiLiTY® integrates with all Building Management System / Building Automation System (BMS/BAS) in the market seamlessly.

Building Automation System (BAS/BMS) integration with a comprehensive FM solution like eFACiLiTY® will essentially transform your building into a Smart & Intelligent Building.

 eFACiLiTY® integration with Building Automation System (BAS/BMS) facilitates the following.

AUTOMATIC WORK ORDER TRIGGERING

eFACiLiTY® can auto-detect any type of alarm (Change of state, Out of Range, etc.,) or pre-set readings from the building management system and automatically raise work orders via eFACiLiTY® Enterprise Asset Management System module establishing smart building management thereby bringing focus to impending problems that might not be addressed otherwise.

Alarm based work order triggering

Through seamless integration with eFACiLiTY®, the alarms triggered by the functional building/facility systems (building control systems, M&E services, fire protection, CCTV system, access control, security systems, etc.) will be captured by eFACiLiTY® Enterprise Asset Management System via the BMS/BAS systems.

Automatic work orders will be generated & auto-assigned to technician/contractor with email, SMS, push notifications, etc. This allows facility managers to make significant savings by ensuring preventive maintenance is performed only when required, hence improving the lifespan of the equipment/asset through proactive repair.

Usage-based work order triggering

All critical equipment that needs maintenance based on its usage needs to be frequently monitored. eFACiLiTY® Enterprise Asset Management System integration with BAS/BMS will identify maintenance & services requirements of an asset or equipment based on its usage, thereby anticipating equipment failure/breakdown by monitoring the utilization data.

If the recorded readings exceed the pre-defined threshold, an automatic work order will be triggered and auto-assigned to a technician with email/SMS/push notifications. Automatic work order schedules (scheduled/predictive) will also be sent to the technician/contractors through email/SMS/push notification with work order details (Spares, Tools, Tasks, etc.,)

SMART MEETING ROOMS FOR AGILE WORKPLACES

Integrating eFACiLiTY® Facility Booking System/Facility Reservation Software with BAS/BMS facilitates smart automation of HVAC, lightings, projectors, focus lights, window blinds, access control systems, and other equipment in meeting rooms, conference/training rooms, etc. based on meeting schedules/bookings in your workplaces/buildings. It provides full-fledged automation of facility booking/reservation right from the minute the attendees enter the meeting rooms to the moment the last person exits the room.

eFACiLiTY® Facility Booking System smartly switches on the HVAC, lightings, projector, or any other equipment in the booked facility before the scheduled start time and auto-cut-off after the meeting time without manual intervention.

Bringing flexibility & mobility to your occupants is the eFACiLiTY® Facility Booking App/Facility Kiosk App which lets them control/operate equipment in the meeting rooms via their mobile devices or touch panels/kiosks placed inside the facility.

  • Control focus lights to toggle between Meeting Mode & Projection Mode
  • Control the lightings on/off
  • Control automated window blinds
  • End or extend ongoing meetings
  • End booking automatically switches off all lights and HVAC to ensure that no electrical device is ON after the end of the meeting saving energy
  • When the user extends an ongoing meeting, eFACiLiTY® Facility Booking System smartly notifies all the respective devices of the ‘extend’ status
Building Management Software

On a sunny day, when your sun control and shading device automates the window blinds to open position allowing the bright natural light to step inside your meeting rooms, eFACiLiTY® immediately understand the need for low lighting levels and elegantly lowers the LUX levels helping you save a lot of energy while allowing your meetings to happen more lively in natural lights. Likewise, when the natural light outside decreases eFACiLiTY® cleverly increases the LUX levels without disrupting the meeting flow.

eFACiLiTY® Facility Booking System aids in energy conservation big time by turning on/off the equipment in the facility based on the employee entry/exit into the rooms via access control system integration, limiting the operation of equipment to only when space is occupied.

If at all any device goes off/faulty during the meeting eFACiLiTY® automatically triggers work orders and initiates the respective corrective actions instantly eliminating any kind of manual intervention to provide uninterrupted hours of productive collaborations for your employees in the meeting rooms.

SWITCHING HVAC / LIGHTING

eFACiLiTY® Smart Building Controls can be integrated with BAS/BMS systems to trigger the lighting, air-conditioning, HVAC, etc., in meeting/conference rooms based on the bookings, workstations based on hot-desking/fixed seating, or in common areas for user’s comfort at specific timings ahead of scheduled timings without dependencies.

When the meetings/bookings conclude, eFACiLiTY® automatically switches off the equipment after a configurable grace period. This aids in energy conservation, automation, and better user comfort.

Any equipment utilized in the building can be controlled, such as lights – on/off, set LUX levels based on which automate the switching of lights, HVAC – on/off, control the fan speed, swing direction, temperature control, window blinds – control, control lifts (elevators), open/close motorized gates/shutters, access control systems, etc., This enhances the ability to fully automate all electronic and electro-mechanical devices, allow building occupants to securely control the devices using their smartphones/mobile devices based on configured privileges, their seating locations, etc. thereby improving energy efficiency and also saving huge costs.
