Mix And Match Instead Of Entire System Replacement
One of the challenges of working with a building system is that there are so many controls products out there and they don’t always talk to each other. We are very familiar with this challenge and we have a wonderful, inexpensive solution: System Integration. Our engineers are experts in complex controls integrations and getting different components to work together seamlessly.
Many building owners would like to add a controls component to their building automation system or simply replace an old controls component but are told they would have to replace the entire system in order to do so due to either system obsolescence or a different communications protocol. Some components communicate via a Modbus protocol, others use the BACnet protocol, still others use SNMP protocol, and so on.
With our integration service, we can add new controls or replace a few old controls without replacing the whole system. We have the ability to get all the components to communicate with each other, so your system continues to run correctly without incurring a huge cost. We can also update the “front-end” system or the user interface to set up more sophisticated energy saving programs without needing to change the “unit level” controls components. This is a great way for clients to save money on the front end and gain a more cost-effective controls solution.
