Cloud-based building management systems of the futureIn a world where we expect everything to happen instantly and automatically, a building management system is an essential tool in the workplace. Businesses spend a lot of money looking to maximise opportunities. It makes sense to invest just a proportion of this investment in your commercial buildings, providing greater opportunity for a happier team who are more effective and use resources more efficiently.
Cloud-based building management systems will simplify your working life, making the workplace more accessible and more affordable, while also committing to reducing the use of the world’s resources.
Always remaining at the forefront of technological advancement, we are proud to say that Cube Controls is the first UK company to install an operational system in a trial to see how cloud-based AI systems could be the future of building control.
Why the future is cloud-basedYour building management system is likely to have much more potential than you are currently activating. Cube Controls is running the trial in cloud-based BMS to help clients maximise the use of these capabilities and so help to improve the well-being of personnel, while reducing the use of energy. A cloud-based system will help you use more practical applications of your BMS.
Imagine a scenario where you are halfway around the world and want to control the settings back at your commercial base. Using a cloud-based system, you can monitor and control your building from a PC or smart device from anywhere in the world.
When a business runs 24/7, it is useful to be able to use a BMS to oversee and control efficiency. This system is more than just a remote control for your commercial space, however.
A cloud-based BMS also provides high-level analytical reporting that is fully automated. The future of BMS saves you money, as you no longer need to hire 3rd party services to analyse the performance of your building. External auditing of your systems is an expense that can be avoided.
Taking BMS one step furtherThe future of cloud-based BMS is even more exciting. BMS has the capacity to learn – or more accurately – it can model environmental data several days into the future to automatically and continuously update settings.
The Cloud BMS service from Priva, called Priva Eco, has pushed the boundaries and created a smart layer that can be added to your BMS installation. This smart layer can monitor and adjust your building all day, every day, continuously.
Your current BMS is limited to the data that it senses directly. Priva Eco allows for greater learning capacity because it draws in data from multiple sources that has been carefully modelled and calculated, meaning your building constantly optimises conditions and maximises your energy savings.
Cube Controls has been excited to work in partnership with Priva, installing the Priva Eco system in two different locations within the UK.
Looking aheadIt makes sense to presume that cloud-based technology will become an essential facet of BMS. People want the efficiency of controlling settings from anywhere and not being forced to the locality to make essential changes or investigate problems. However, the ability to draw in data that models and calculates the best settings is an exciting innovation and one that Cube Control is delighted to be a part of.
