Beginning with SmartServer 3.5, you have the option of configuring your SmartServer system to run with a Local CMS or Remote CMS. The following figure is an example of the SmartServer CMS. See SmartServer CMS Overview and SmartServer IoT CMS Widgets Index for more information.

You can use the SmartServer Local CMS to provision, manage, monitor, and control all your devices from a single CMS integrated with a single SmartServer.  With the Local CMS, you run the CMS on the SmartServer IoT Edge Server.  The edge devices may be any mix of BACnet, LON, and Modbus devices.  You can use the Local CMS integrated in the SmartServer, or you can create your own CMS using the IAP interfaces to the SmartServer.
