Common BMS Question/Answers:

Can we use a remote control unit as well as the BMS?

Yes. We use a different motor that can accept the commands from a remote control as well as the commands from the BMS. We may need a specialised transmitter between the motors and the BMS relays. Contact Modular

We need to manage the shading for a building with different requirements for each elevation that may or may not include sun tracking?

Please refer to the Dynamic Fašade Management System section
