Building management system (BMS) has the ability to monitor and control buildings’ mechanical and electrical equipment including namely heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, power, fire and security systems. BMS can also provide indoor thermal comfort within commercial buildings including industrial and institutional buildings and able to reduce energy consumption. However most of HVAC systems are controlled by using conventional controller whose functions are based on ON/OFF controller and Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controllers. These controllers are not the ultimate solution to save energy because the operations of HVACsystems are nonlinear. Thus, the implementation of fuzzy logic controllers within smart buildings will be more efficient which consequently will save more energy and money. This paper reviews, investigates and evaluates the use of fuzzy logic controller in HVAC systems and light controllers for smart buildings in subtropical Australia. Additionally, it highlights the recent developments in BMS controllers including its conceptual basis, capabilities and limitations.
