Building Automation and Control Systems Integration BACSI Facilities and Campus Services

Located in some of the fastest growing markets in the country, LONG is a well-established leader in the New Construction market. We provide industry leading Building Automation System solutions across all vertical markets at a competitive cost that provides exceptional value to the end user. Lighting control systems shall not be connected to BAS except for monitoring of lighting system.
It is common for room automation systems to employ a touchscreen as the primary way of controlling each operation. If occupancy sensors are present, they can also be used as burglar alarms. Because security systems are often deliberately sabotaged, at least some detectors or cameras should have battery backup and wireless connectivity and the ability to trigger alarms when disconnected.
Daikin’s scalable, cloud-based building automation systems instantly and easily optimize the performance of any HVAC ecosystem—including other makes and existing building systems. Plus, our real-time analytics provide effortless insight and enable optimization for energy, indoor air quality and sustainability. They will work in a state-of-the-art college lab that utilizes real equipment and systems that are seen currently in commercial buildings.
Integration of third party devices has typically required the use of gateways as such systems tend to support only a limited number of open protocols. Various businesses have grown up to meet this need, enabling translation of one protocol to another so that metering or other sensor data can be incorporated within the main BAS. The use of open framework software such as Niagara or FIN has helped significantly in reducing the cost of such integrations by enabling multiple protocols to be handled by one platform rather than requiring multiple gateway devices. As a smartphone screen allows far more possibilities the UI designs can now enable not only temperature adjustment but also control of lighting level and blind position, in addition to various other functions as desired by the building operator.
A building’s complex and diverse systems provide a large attack surface for threat actors. Cyber threats continue to escalate, with the potential to impact more than just IT networks. Core building systems could be compromised, and in the worst case, come to a standstill or be taken offline to protect them. The i.MX 8 processor family is built with high-level integration to support graphics, video, image processing, audio and voice functions, and is ideal for safety-certifiable and efficient performance requirements. A further way in which the equipment can be better managed is by uploading to the BAS or separate analytics software the manufacturer’s own design performance parameters.
What the next decade is likely to bring us in building automation and integration is access. This means access between systems that have traditionally been independent, access to the systems for the technical people supporting buildings, and access to information the building has about use and performance for decision-makers. will let building owners and operators make more informed decisions about space utilization, improve the user’s environment, and meet energy and carbon reduction goals. Drive energy-saving strategies and improved user experiences with energy management tools to identify areas where you can reduce energy consumption and lower energy costs.
