Lighting and HVAC in one controller = One system integrator!

The convergence of IP and building automation networks is undeniable and enables the integration of diverse applications and systems. Just to name a few, IP can connect energy metering & management, building automation, video surveillance, access control, and even fire & alarm systems. Managing several, or all of the above, from a single interface can offer unprecedented levels of reactivity and cohesion between systems.  It can also reduce overlapping software, labour and training costs. This is why IP enabled controllers and building management systems will win.

For system integrators, to manage HVAC and lighting simultaneously with a single controller means reduced hardware, installation and logistics costs. For end-users, it means better return on investments and shorter payback periods.

So, if someone is proposing to use a specialist BMS control contractor and a lighting control system integrator contractor on the same project – STOP and ask why?

The same specialist system integrator could undertake both roles!
