7 INTELLIGENT BUILDING FOCUS: – Communication Systems Where In a Post-AE790 Understanding Does It FitWhy Is It ImportantWhat Systems are Currently AvailableHow Do These Systems Compare to Expectations
8 Communication – (Topic 1 of 4) Where Does It Fit InBuilding Phase: OperationBuilding Systems: Any or All
9 Communication – (Topic 2 of 4) Why Is It ImportantSaves TimeSaves MoneyReduces Stress
10 Communication Products – (Topic 3 of 4) What Systems are Currently AvailableAlarm/Security SystemsU.C.ME (Control-See)LukWerks (WiLife)iControl System (iControl)Home “Awareness” SystemsHome Heartbeat (Eaton)
12 Communication – U.C.MENotifies users on alarm situations via SMS, WAP, RSS, Phone, Fax, and Multimedia.OPC (OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) for Process Control) client alarm notification and analysis software.Supports bidirectional communication via SMS and Phone. Users may acknowledge alarms, query or change tag values via SMS or phone.Applications: Building management, Security systems, Industrial control, Water treatment, Healthcare.
14 Communication – LukWorks Live video monitoring of up to six camerasMotion triggered recordings save disk spacePowerful search and playback toolsand cell phone alertsFree remote viewing for anywhere anytime access
16 Communication – iControl Remotely monitor heating/AC and lighting levelsSchedule heat, cooling or lightingSchedule automatic turn on/off of your energy systemsRemotely know if windows and doors are closed, that lights are on or offRemotely take snapshots triggered by motion sensors in a home office, front or back door
18 Communication – Home Heartbeat Allows homeowners an all-in-one glimpse at the status and condition of their homes.The system can be set up to send s or text message alerts to cell phones when a problem is detected.Components use low-frequency radio chips to form a monitoring network throughout the home.The system performs a "health check" that occurs every 24 hours between the base and all components to ensure they are operating properly.
19 Communication (Topic 4 of 4) Alarm/Security Only???What about learning – will I receive s or texts every time the cat or dog crosses the motion sensor2-way communication – Limited AvailabilityWhy not notify maintenance when service is requiredData Saving – how much data is kept – for how longWhat about Gas leak, Open Windows (auto closers),Options are limited by amount or type of sensorsWhy are these systems installed after construction – why not installed during construction – as part of infrastructureSystems seem to lack “intelligence” – Reactive vs. ProactiveHow Do These Systems Compare to Expectations
