The last few years, cell phones have shown tremendous progress and have become an important part of everyday human life. In addition, the big energy problem and the outbreak of the financial crisis worldwide have as a result the development of systems for management and saving energy, especially on buildings. This thesis develops a mobile application in iPhone (iOS), through which the monitoring and control of a Building Energy Management System (BEMS) is performed. Specifically the application was developed for the Technical Services (maintenance support) building of TUC, as part of the European energy program PEBBLE. The development of the application includes the implementation of one server, which allows communication between the application and the databases. These databases maintain all the data of sensors and actuators that are established in the building. The server follows the REST protocol and is written in PHP. It’s about a REST PHP web server. The architecture and technologies of the application and server are being analyzed. In addition, the functionalities and capabilities that the application provides, are described in detail. Finally, the application’s design was made in the light of flexibility, in order to be adapted to other systems or buildings in the future, aiming to the essential evaluation and then optimization of the Building Energy Management Systems, BEMS.
