    Does the abbreviation "BMS" stand for "Building Management System"? If yes, then the required connections would normally be listed in the equipment specification and connection diagrams from the manufacturer.

    If no, then please provide more detailed information without using abbreviations. Thank you.

    Yes, it is Building Management System. And the answer depends on the level of control and monitoring desired. IMO, the more the better! There is no one-size-fits-all answer.
