An Integrated Building Management System or a (more recent terminology) Building Automation System (BAS) is a single, cohesive building management system controlling lighting, HVAC, fire, security, surveillance, access control and other facilities. Integrated Building Management Systems bring many benefits when trying to squeeze the best performance from your building.


Within smaller buildings, the ability to monitor and instruct the system from a single workstation, with a single display, means the System Manager's task is more efficient. They spend less time moving between systems with different GUIs and more time improving the building operation. Imagine checking the temperature, lighting levels and fire-detector status of a building, and comparing total energy usage with occupancy - all from a single screen.

When several engineers are managing larger sites, displays can be optimized for management function (energy saving, maintenance, help-desk) rather than for system function (lighting, HVAC, etc). Maintenance staff can check plant operation across all control fields, management can check energy usage, security staff can deal with access control, CCTV, and intruder alerts.


Integrated Building Management System allows a level of control optimization to take place which is unavailable to standalone Building Management Systems. Security and access systems can instruct HVAC and lighting systems when the building is occupied; fire systems can control lifts; CCTV systems can be used to check fire alarms; heating systems can interact with cooling systems - the list goes on.

Occupants feel better, because the system is responding to them more. At the end of the day, the system responds by changing its operation as the staff leaves - late workers don't get colder. Real intelligent control is now possible. Better control not only brings happier occupants; energy savings increase, because energy is used only when needed. Winds International products-range can be used with existing management systems, as well as systems based on standard protocols.


An IP PBX is a private branch exchange (telephone switching system within an enterprise) that switches calls between VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol or IP) users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines. The typical IP PBX can also switch calls between a VoIP user and a traditional telephone user, or between two traditional telephone users in the same way that a conventional PBX does. The abbreviation may appear in various texts as IP-PBX, IP/PBX, or IPPBX.
