Building management systems – a key component in the growth of building automation
The installed base of connected building automation systems in Europe and North America is forecast to exceed 34 million by 2024, a recent research report has been able to suggest.
According to IoT analyst firm Berg Insight, this represents a compound growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0 per cent. Around 3.2 million connected building systems were shipped in the two regions in 2019 to reach an estimated total of 20.5 million systems in 2019. This includes building systems that are connected to the internet and can send data to a back-office platform.
At the same time, the building automation market in Europe and North America generated revenues of close to € 29.5bn in 2019. The analyst expects the market will grow at a CAGR of 10.4 per cent to €48.4bn in 2024 as there is clearly a new urgency due to factors such as energy conservation as well as mandates for green construction.
Building automation systems include a wide range of solutions for controlling, monitoring and automating functions in buildings like commercial office spaces, retail stores, hotels, schools, hospitals and industrial buildings.
These technologies also help reduce operational expenditures, meet stringent global regulations and sustainability standards as well as increase occupancy comfort.
Building automation systems can also help boost workplace productivity and optimise office space, which in turn cut costs and increase revenues for companies. Data generated from these solutions can also be used to reduce the spread of viruses and other diseases inside buildings, increasingly important since the outbreak of Covid-19.
HeatingSave Building Management System BMS software –advanced controls and analytics features
The HeatingSave high level software is a web based user friendly and intuitive software application, delivering unrivalled control and monitoring of the heating system. Using just a browser from one desktop or laptop PC, tablet or smart phone you can control your entire building or a whole network of buildings. Software features include:
Advanced planning of heating patterns and diary allowing 365 day programming with different patterns for each zone.
Graph visualisation of every temperature, air quality, occupancy and on/off event ever recorded. Use these to identify problems with boilers, pumps etc. and also to prove that HeatingSave is working for you.
Transaction and fault logging and reporting. Alerts include boilers failing to respond, or when they unexpectedly start to increase in heat (manually overridden by someone). Also sensors hitting maximum/minimum temperatures are displayed. Avoid expensive repair and maintenance costs by determining what the problem is first so you can either change the settings yourself or send the right person first time.
Running Costs – View the costs of boilers, equipment like pumps or immersions, air-cons etc. The costs are broken down by site or by each system individually. They are then displayed daily, monthly and quarterly. You can even see the carbon usage of your building or collection of buildings.
View your site as a schematic with temperatures and equipment status overlaid. Keep track of an entire site from one easy viewport.
Easily manage the settings and parameters for the entire Building Energy Management System from one place.
