Why it’s time for your buildings to help maintain themselves

The concept of smart facilities management—and the concept of smart buildings—have been around for decades. Smart facilities management (SFM) began with building management systems (BMS). A BMS is a computer-based solution installed in buildings to monitor and manage various systems, such as heating and cooling, electricity, and ventilation. Over the years, BMS has become more advanced with the addition of communications protocols and networks, but it has several limitations.
