Peace of Mind for Building Automation Systems that Must Not Fail
The demand for more efficient buildings to control costs and the drive for buildings to become increasingly environmentally friendly has placed the focus on building automation systems. The result is that individual systems themselves are becoming more sophisticated. Additionally, there is a growing requirement to integrate heating, cooling, lighting, alarm and, increasingly, access control systems to maximize overall efficiency. As the control of these systems becomes more closely integrated, the more critical they become. This is driving a greater need for continuous availability with no downtime. Even short periods of downtime when building automation systems are offline can lead to disruption and overall business loss much greater than the period of downtime itself.
