According to a recent release, Honeywell’s latest smart building technology, Command and Control Suite release 200 connects building personnel with data analytics to help drive operational improvements and efficiencies. The product builds on the original Command and Control Suite by offering more user interfaces to bring building performance data to key personnel in order to reduce operational costs, mitigate risk and enhance business continuity.
Combining intelligent automation, advanced analytics and data visualization with the contemporary user experience of consumer home and mobile electronics, the upgrades are designed to bring simple, intuitive displays to building operations to enhance facility and security management in an easy-to-understand manner. The latest release uses holistic integration, map-based visualization and incident workflows to control room workstations, desktop PCs and windows tablets, extending the software’s mobile, touch-optimized experience to more interfaces.
“The value of a building’s data is dependent on how easily the right people can access and understand it. As today’s operations become increasingly data-driven, it’s imperative for organizations to ensure they’re taking steps to make this data accessible and actionable to those who need it in order to do their jobs, such as security personnel, building operators and C-suite executives,” said John Rajchert, President, Building Solutions, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. “That’s why we chose to develop more interfaces and software mobility functions with CCS. We’re providing additional ways for key personnel to tap into key building insights so they can keep systems up and running and optimize building operations.”
Building off the basic components of the original Command and Control Suite, this release is designed to extend an organization’s ability to turn complex data into easy-to-implement changes to enhance overall building operations. The Command Station is a single window, single monitor interface for facility technicians, security guards and management. It allows even inexperienced users to quickly understand the overall situation at a glance by providing insights in a straightforward manner, while allowing expert users the ability to drill down to technical detail and full system control.
CCS R200 integrates with Honeywell’s flagship building management platform, Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI), which helps facilitate the integration of security, comfort, life safety and energy systems among other functions.
