Andrej Kavrečič (2012) Building management system. EngD thesis.
The main goal of this thesis was the development of the software solution part for the building management system and the comparison of this system with the most current solutions available on the market for building automation. The first section describes the connectivity protocols that are used for communication between devices in the building with the building management system installed. Description begins with an overview of the X10 standard and is followed by the remaining protocols: Insteon, Z-Wave, UPB and Zigbee. At the end there is a comparison of common features between these protocols. The next section describes one of the current building management systems on the market, the HomeSeer. It lists and describes the components needed to make such a system to operate and it also describes some of their commonly used modules for managing devices. For a comparison, the company Fibaro and their innovative managing modules are added. In the last part of the thesis there is the description of the developed solution - cyBMS. First all of the system components are described. Then a more detailed description of the developed software modules PCU and DHU follows. First their common framework is explained and then more detailed description of each program module is followed. In conclusion, the user interface is presented and thus the capabilities that are offered by the developed system.
