Open Source Building Management System

A few days ago I made a research for founding more details about the BMS (Building Management System), what it includes, how it is possible to implement and the base features. It consist in 2 parts: hardware and software. The software part is represented by a complex software application with possibility to monitor and control all the building installations. The interconnection between the software and hardware is made usind dedicated hardware components and predefined communication protocols. The hardware part is quite clear. On software there are different sollutions which are expensive (this is and one reason why the BMS are integrated in large buildings). I try to found a free/open-source solution and found just one: OpenLynx … but it is not anymore available. It seems that they stop developing it. This was the only one free solution found.

For this reson I try to wonder if it will no be possible to start a BMS software implementation by myseft. How hard could it be?! A design plan should be made. I will analyze the idea more these days. If somebody is interested to colaborate, to test the versions of the BMS software or give good ideas at the developing just say.

    Take a look at Mango M2M – seems like they have shifted to commercial development, but the open source version is still available. Very powerful and flexible.
