Commercial buildings

Heating and cooling accounts for 20-40% of energy costs in a typical office environment, lowering heating temperatures by just 1ºC can cut fuel consumption by 8%
(Carbon trust UK)

Given the dramatic increases in utility costs and the forecast for future price hikes, energy management is now a board-level issue in all organizations. ABB Cylon BMS includes best in class HVAC control, flexible lighting control, and extensibility to include ancillary building services. This is combined with real-time information on building conditions and powerful energy management.


Save substantial utility costs with the installation of ABB Cylon smart building solutions that effectively manage HVAC and lighting, the largest users of energy in modern buildings, and prevent up to 20% building energy drift per annum through continuous monitoring and management of building energy usage with ABB Cylon energy management tools.

Intelligent IoT BEMS control | beyond automation

A well commissioned and programmed BMS will deliver on schedules, switching lightings on and off at set times/days and adjusting HVAC according to expected occupancy.


An intelligent IoT BMS goes beyond schedules and expectations and operates on actual sensor data to make adjustments, turn lights on and off, and adjust HVAC in meeting rooms depending on occupancy, no need to worry about lights being left on in empty meeting rooms all day.


And if it’s a brighter warmer day than expect, external temperature sensors, weather data, room light, and temperature sensors feed information back to the BMS causing it to react and make intelligent adjustments to lighting, shading, and HVAC to ensure occupant comfort is maintained at all times.
