There are many innovations transforming building services driven mainly by the huge challenge of achieving Net Zero targets. In a series of articles, we look at these...
The Atamate building operating system (atBOS) is designed to integrate the functions of building management and automation.
Recent decades have seen technology becoming progressively more important in building management. There are a plethora of different systems with different costs and capabilities on the market, usually described using confusingly inconsistent terminology. We find it helpful to place systems under these two categories:
Many modern buildings require both a BMS and a separate system to control automated services. The two systems run on different software which may be integrated to allow the BMS to control the automation, but installing two different systems inevitably involves two different installations, two different software subscriptions and two different items of capital and operational expenditure.
The functions handled by atBOS enable a building to be both managed and controlled by a single platform, which has several advantages over integrating two different platforms:
