Honeywell has announced the next generation of smart building technology – Command and Control Suite. It turns complex facility data into recommendations and easy-to-implement changes that help boost business outcomes — lowering costs, minimizing risk and reducing downtime. Investing in this type of smart building technology typically pays for itself within one or two years by delivering operational efficiencies as well as energy savings.
It provides a holistic view of a connected building’s video feeds, access control and fire alarms and pull in relevant information from human resource applications. Integrating data from these disparate systems could help security personnel track occupants and make sure they exit the facility in the event of an evacuation, improving employee safety. Command and Control Suite technologies integrate with Honeywell’s building management platform, Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI).
The Command Wall features map-based visualization and navigation along with integrated workflows and system-wide integration from a single, intuitive touchscreen interface. It presents data from multiple systems across a facility, such as utility meters and temperature sensors, while providing context for more informed decision making. Using progressive disclosure, users can access an enterprise-wide view and also easily zoom into specific areas to quickly understand and react to issues and opportunities as they arise. The Command Wall with Incident Workflow and Enterprise Dashboards will be available in the second quarter of 2015..
