As today’s buildings grow more complicated, with larger and more complex systems, building owners and occupants need to take a smarter approach to managing these systems in order to make sure everything keeps running the way they want it to. Implementing a building management system (BMS) is one of the best ways to achieve this goal.
What is a Building Management System?
A BMS could be any solution that helps automate the monitoring and control of building systems. The systems that can be controlled with a BMS include HVAC, power, lighting, security, and fire systems. By using a BMS, building administrators are able to make sure that all of these important systems are working properly and in synchronization with one another, without actually having to perform manual monitoring and control themselves.
What are the Benefits of Implementing a BMS?
By implementing a building management system, building owners and operators can enjoy a variety of benefits, including:
- Decreased costs: By making sure that HVAC, lighting, and electrical systems are running at maximum efficiency, building admins can cut down on the amount of unnecessary power costs.
- Better use of employee time:When employees aren’t stuck performing tedious and time-consuming monitoring, they can focus their efforts on more important work.
- Greater reliability: A BMS can warn a building admin when there’s a problem with a system, so it can be addressed before the system fails.
In order to make the most of the potential benefits, it’s important to work with a partner you can trust to implement your BMS. At Miller Critical Infrastructure Solutions, we have the experience and knowledge needed to help you get the BMS that best meets the needs of your organization.

In a world where power costs are constantly increasing, it is no surprise that energy efficiency is an important goal for data center and critical power facility managers. In order for these managers to really provide efficient power use within their facilities, they must have an accurate understanding of what their current power usage levels are, where the majority of the waste in their system is coming from, and what they can do to address that waste. Accurate energy monitoring services will help managers perform their energy efficiency efforts.
Miller Critical Infrastructure Solutions (MCIS) can serve as your trusted partner throughout the entire energy monitoring process, giving you the hardware, software, and analysis you need to get an accurate understanding of what’s really going on with power usage in your facility. We will help you analyze the initial results , develop a plan to increase your efficiency and work to apply initial changes and develop an ongoing monitoring and optimization plan.
MCIS energy monitoring services support smarter energy use
MCIS, has a history of helping our customers build better, more efficient critical infrastructures since the 1980s. Today, we are using the knowledge, skill, and experience we have gained over the decades to provide energy monitoring services that help our customers address the rising costs of energy in the world today.
Energy monitoring services from MCIS can offer your facility the ability to:
- Get accurate and real-time statistics of facility energy usage
- Start small and grow as your facility needs grow
- Provide the support needed to make the implementation cost effective
Get accurate and real-time statistics of facility energy usage
There are many steps your facility can take to estimate your power usage, but these calculations are often not accurate enough to support better energy efficiency within your data center or critical power facility.
With energy monitoring services from MCIS, your facility can get access to energy usage statistics that provide a true reading of how much power is actually being used within your facility, as well as the ability to track how this usage changes over time.
With accurate, real time energy monitoring, you’ll be able to find out instantly if there is a spike in energy usage within your infrastructure. An unusually large jump in energy usage can often be an indicator that something is seriously wrong with your infrastructure; energy monitoring can help you identify and address the problem quickly.
Start small and grow as your facility needs grow
At MCIS, we understand that not all critical power facilities were created equal. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and therefore have different needs when it comes to energy monitoring. Therefore, we do not offer one-size-fits-all energy monitoring services. We take the time to understand what each of our customers’ needs from an energy monitoring solution, and then design a solution that meets their needs while also staying within budget.
Perhaps you’ve heard about energy monitoring in the past, but assumed that it was intended for larger facilities. At MCIS, this is not the case. We can build a solution that meets your current needs, however small they may be, while also offering you the ability to grow your solution over time as your facility grows.
Provide the support needed to make the implementation cost effective
Many people assume that installing an energy monitoring solution is a complex and expensive process that is guaranteed to cause disruption within the facility. However, with MCIS, this does not have to be the case. We will use our decades of experience in the critical power market to create an implementation plan that is as simple and as affordable as possible. We will work with you to make sure the entire implementation process goes smoothly with no interruptions.
