Not sure what a BAS System is ?

A Building Automation System (BAS) is an example of a Distributed control system.

Building automation describes the functionality provided by the control system. The control system is a computerized, intelligent network of electronic devices, designed to monitor and control the mechanical and lighting systems in a building.

BAS core functionality keeps the building climate within a specified range, provides lighting based on an occupancy schedule, and monitors system performance and device failures and provides email and/or text notifications to building engineering staff.

The BAS functionality reduces building energy and maintenance costs when compared to a non-controlled building. A building controlled by a BAS is often referred to as an intelligent building system.

As more and more governments try to get involved with this "green movement", I think you will see this start to become required in offices/businesses. I think it is California that now requires occupency sensors on lighting control in office buildings.

A BAS is just that and more, endless possibilities can come from a well engineered system.
BAS can control HVAC equipment to Indoor and Outdoor lighting to security systems.
