Owners of large numbers of residential and other types of properties, particularly local housing authorities, are faced with the management of huge amounts of plant of increasing complexity installed over a wide geographical area. These building services include not only lifts but also heating systems, pumps, lighting, door entry systems and fire detection systems. As techniques for remote management of these services start to come of age it is important for these owners to consider their options for the remote monitoring and management of these building services. This paper reviews some of the benefits of carrying out the remote monitoring and management of services and develops the authors own operational requirements for such an all-encompassing management system which is now a viable option.
