BMS Without Wires
There is no denying the benefits of wireless sensing. It allows sensors to be added to areas were it might be very difficult or unsightly to install cabling and exiting BMS installations can often be made far more effective & energy efficient. However, the wide use of wireless sensing within the scope of Internet of Things (IoT) also comes with potential problems and security risks. It is always worth looking at the potential effects of a wireless sensor installation. Could the data being broadcast be sensitive to the client? Could manipulation of the data cause problems for the building or the systems within it? You have to stop and ask yourself the question ‘Just because I can install wireless sensing, should I install wireless sensing?’ Tony Williams – Cube.
