With the world becoming more and more technologically advanced the rise in the use of building management systems or BMS has become very popular. Anything that automates a process is very much desirable across a range of users. Even more so with those working in office blocks and buildings.

In our latest article, we take a look at what is smart office technology and what are the benefits.

What Is Smart Office Technology?

Smart Office Technology is a new way to control your office. That can be control and automation of lights to the heating or the fire systems to the security systems everything can be controlled from one central smart device. With more and more people also having at least a smartphone or even a tablet, the use of smart office technology is accessible to many.

For many people – whether that’s the owners of the building, contractors or even office users, the use of smart office technology and solutions has become a really key feature to ensuring the overall running and maintenance of the building itself.

BMS saves vast amounts of time and money in the process.

Why Would I Need Smart Office Technology?

Why would I need smart office technology? This is a question asked by many. As far as smart office solutions go, the use of a BMS does hold a number of benefits. With the advances in technology and the popularity of these systems, they become more user friendly as times go on. Some of the benefits include the following:

Energy Effciency 

With the UK heading to a lower carbon footprint, the need to be more energy efficient is becoming a key topic.

By using a BMS you can reduce your office’s carbon footprint. This is done through programming heating and lighting to only be on when needed most, reducing waste and also reducing costs.

Programmable Settings 

Want to programme the heating within your business or maybe you wan tot access the CCTV from the building? Then this can all be done via a BMS system. Programmable settings means that you can control individual offices, floors or even the building as a whole. These programmable settings create an efficient environment, but also allow full control to ensure that all systems are running as they should be.

Health & Safety Control

Health and Safety is also a main focus for many within an office setting. A BMS process does not just automate systems, but also helps to monitor these systems as well. Therefore meaning if there are faults within elevators, fire systems or even security tunrstyles these can be picked up and corrected in a timely and efficient manner.

To Conclude

There we have it, the benefits to smart office technology.

As mentioned at the start of this article, the advances in technology has meant that BMS systems have become increasingly popular. With the need to automate more and more within an office setting, in times to come it will definitely be a case of when you install a system, not if.
