Enhanced building technology helps improve data visualization, decision-making
Honeywell, a leader in connected buildings, has unveiled its latest smart building technology.
Command and Control Suite release 200 (CCS R200) connects building personnel with data analytics to help drive operational improvements and efficiencies, the company said in a release.
CCS R200, available now, builds on the original Command and Control Suite by offering more user interfaces to bring building performance data to key personnel, when and where they need it — from building operators and managers to security incident response teams — helping to reduce operational costs, mitigate risk and enhance business continuity.
CCS R200 combines intelligent automation, advanced analytics and data visualization with the contemporary user experience of consumer home and mobile electronics, bringing simple, intuitive displays to building operations to enhance facility and security management in an easy-to-understand manner. The latest release brings the holistic integration, map-based visualization and incident workflows of CCS to the control room workstation, desktop PCs and windows tablets, extending the software’s mobile, touch-optimized experience to more interfaces.
This creates a seamless hub of information pulled from IT networks, building control systems and outside sources, which allows for better incident response and operational decision-making.
CCS R200 is designed with the same ease of use as the Command Wall, which was designed as a collaboration and team decision-making tool, and features map-based visualization and navigation from a single intuitive touchscreen. CCS R200 brings that same ease of use to core operational interfaces, the Command Station and Command Console, extending 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, designed for a desktop PC, laptop and Windows tablet, and is often ideal for facility technicians, security guards and management as well as for casual use by occupants. It allows even inexperienced users to quickly understand the overall situation at a glance by providing unique insights in a straightforward manner, while allowing expert users the ability to drill down to technical detail and full system control.
In addition to new interfaces, CCS R200 includes enhancements to the original system’s Incident Workflow feature, which guides users through scripted responses to security incidents and other emergencies. The enhancements include map visualization to clearly locate an incident, such as a fire alarm going off, to quickly identify the exact location.
