As explained comprehensively in this article, building automation with open technologies creates many opportunities for not only manufacturers and developers, but also for electricians, installers, and system integrators. Due to the frequently experienced initial situation of limited simultaneous configuration possibilities of various applications in as well as residential and commercial building control, the common usage of one uniform technology reduces not only time, but also makes the installation simpler. Nevertheless, the broad range of technologies in the market frequently only allows the handling of a single application, resulting in non-standardised solutions with additional wiring effort and the need for complex commissioning software packages.
Being often faced with issues resulting from this situation, the solution to all problems would be a system which is suitable for all applications in residential and commercial building control, such as lighting, blind and shutter control, security systems, HVAC, audio/video, energy management, metering and much more. Further than that, this system should as well be easy to understand, easy to commission and open to all manufacturers to allow flawless interworking between the various devices of various manufacturers.
In case these issues sound familiar to you, have a look at this video:
