Automated doors and windows in building automation – GEZE innovative system solutions complete ‘Smart Buildings’
Heating, air-conditioning, lighting and shading aren’t everything when it comes to smart buildings! GEZE is complementing traditional technologies in building automation with new innovative solutions, since a building is truly ‘smart’ only if automated doors and windows are integrated. GEZE will be presenting multifunctional door and window systems integrated into network solutions across all product categories. As a result, new opportunities will be created in smart buildings for convenient, secure and energy-saving building operation.
The stars of the trade fair presentation will be the new GEZE Cockpit building automation system and interface modules for integrating GEZE products and systems into the building network. GEZE uses BACnet and KNX for this purpose – the most popular, open communication protocols in building automation in the world.
With GEZE Cockpit, GEZE products from the areas of door, window and safety technology can be controlled centrally and monitored by separate software applications. In exactly the same way, the BACnet building controller enables the simple integration of GEZE Cockpit into the building management system across all product categories. With the new system, the ‘complete intelligence’ of the products can be incorporated into the building network for the first time: doors and windows can be controlled ‘intelligently’ together with other participants of the system. Data exchange between GEZE Cockpit and the integrated doors and windows is carried out via the IO 420 BACnet interface module.
GEZE will also demonstrate the networking of automated window systems that are integrated into a building automation system with the KNX standard. For controlled, natural ventilation, the chain and spindle drives of the IQ windowdrive series can be integrated as direct bus participants in a KNX building system via the award-winning IQ box KNX interface module. This means that automated windows can also be ‘intelligently’ monitored and operated from a central location.
