The progression of digital technology is having a substantial impact on building operations and energy efficiency.
Conventional building automation systems (BAS), also called building management systems (BMS), help to save energy and money by automating and integrating building systems such as HVAC, lighting, access control, closed circuit television (CCTV) and other building systems. However, not all BAS/BMS optimize building energy efficiency as well as an energy management system (EMS). Rather than simply automating systems, an EMS actively monitors and works to minimize a building’s energy consumption based on real-time inputs from a variety of sensors.
A Master System Integrator (MSI) such as FT Williams & Associates, utilizes today’s digital technologies to merge BAS, BMS and EMS functionality and more into a single, integrated system. This provides total real-time monitoring, data collection and analysis, wired and wireless communications to devices and sensors and data-driven and smart system control.
As an MSI, we can also help upgrade your proprietary BAS, BMS or EMS into a much more capable, modern and flexible non-proprietary system: avoiding the need to replace the entire system.
We offer a full range of building automation and energy management products and services, including:
Controllers such as:
Internet of things (IoT)
System & data backups and backup management
Hosted remote access
Custom Training for Customers
Controls maintenance contracts
Energy metering and sub metering
Besides being fully capable of taking care of the most advanced and sophisticated digital controls and software, we also have decades of experience taking care of mechanical, electro-mechanical and pneumatic controls including installing compressors, air dryers and control panels.
