Schneider Electric has announced a new addition to its SmartStruxure suite with the launch of the SmartStruxure Lite solution, a high-performance, low cost, integrated building management system (iBMS) designed for small- and medium-sized buildings.

As the first iBMS to address the unique needs of owners and managers of buildings less than 100,000ft 2 (10,000m 2 ), the SmartStruxure Lite solution provides tailored functionalities for facilities with a smaller footprint, including retail stores, offices, hotels, schools, and healthcare clinics.

"Traditionally, building management systems are created for facilities with a much larger footprint and incorporate tools that are not applicable or cost-effective for small- and medium-sized buildings," said Frederick Morency, vice president, small building systems, Schneider Electric.

"Schneider Electric's SmartStruxure Lite solution fills a significant gap in the building management system market and empowers our small and midsize building customers to achieve their energy and budgetary goals by providing the tools and data they need to create an efficient, affordable, streamlined building management model," Morency said.


The SmartStruxure Lite solution is an open system that integrates management of HVAC, lighting, energy and more into one easy-to-manage interface. The solution allows building managers to quickly improve resource use and occupant comfort, increase energy efficiency in both existing buildings and new construction, and drive value with cost-effective building management throughout the life cycle of a facility.

The SmartStruxure Lite solution also offers programmable control and management using the StruxureWare Building Expert software, a no-license-fee web interface. By lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) for buildings with a smaller footprint and enabling wireless control and networking of building systems, the SmartStruxure Lite solution provides a quick return on investment (ROI) for small- and medium-sized facilities.

Built on open standards, the SmartStruxure Lite solution integrates with new and existing building infrastructure, through EcoStruxure Web Services (EWS), BACnet IP, and oBIX, allowing for simple and fast installation without needing to "rip and replace" existing technology.
