Integrated management solutions for building security and building control systems professionally managed buildings must meet high requirements in terms of security, Zuverlassigkeit, comfort and efficiency.

Compared to the development status of building automation in medium-sized companies, which should have been nothing more than a central nervous system, evolution dragged on so. Because in times of economic uncertainty and tight budgets, companies often hesitate to invest, although the technology on the market is available in a new modern business networking. When is the investment make sense? Companies that use more two-wire technology for building security, get significant advantages in their transition to modern IT-based networks from the moment of start-up of the new network. So far, they had to lead a separate cable for each fire detector, each camera surveillance or each fire detector that allowed any control and control function. Mostly it consisted of proprietary SCADA systems for which also the herstellerspezfischen sensors were necessary. The transition from pure electronics on IT networks helps companies, current and future requirements concerning fire protection and building security functions to open up more with little effort to meet and in addition. Base is a modern network with Internet Protocol (IP), as it is used today in many cases as a data network and is thus already installed.

Fire protection and building security are only more uses. All units from the camera to the smoke detector will be recorded as data points in the network and configured on the central data server or filed. Sensors can also be bound to a WLAN (wireless local area network).
