Remote Access to a Building Management System

  • Krzysztof Dobosz
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 64)


This paper presents a universal approach to the problem of a remote access to the building management system. The idea bases on the configuration of the BMS stored in the XML format. The configuration consists of defined properties of buildings, devices and states. The building management protocol for remote access to the BMS is also described. Proper commands for controlling devices, monitoring are enumerated. Shortly the solution of the problem of transaction is presented.
