Building owners and operators know full-well how essential it is to keep their sites running smoothly and securely. However, with multiple systems in need of supervision and various employees who need access to those systems, it can be difficult for a single building manager to delegate specific tasks to the right people efficiently.
ODIN (Operator Display Integrated Network) is a building automation system with an integrated, simplified user interface that makes it easy to manage complex HVAC and energy processes in your building—or even in multiple buildings.
ODIN is a helpful central control hub for the BACnet objects in your HVAC system and other building facilities, even if they’re all from different makers. However, it is more than just a centralized control dashboard—ODIN is an open book for the story of your building monitoring system.
Building automation systems are the way of the future. With SMART technology, modern advancements in automation, and the flexible mobility of smartphones, managing a building’s HVAC and other systems is easier than it’s ever been before.
Cumbersome facilities management process or antiquated building control systems increase support costs, risk, time, and the overall efficiency of the work your building technicians are tasked with. Nonetheless, in the model of the Efficient World Scenario, there is potential for global building energy consumption to become 40% more efficient in 2040 than it is today, in spite of anticipated growth in floor areas of 60% in that same timeframe.
Your future is now!
The Internet of Things (IoT) surrounds our lives. Smart speakers, mobile apps that control lights in your living room, cameras in your refrigerator, and other technological developments have revolutionized the way we interact with the internet, but even more importantly, the actual buildings in which we live and work.
When it comes to promoting more productive and knowledgeable technicians, using a building automation system (BAS) can be your secret weapon. With its automation capabilities and seamless prioritization of tasks, using a BAS to train new or existing technicians can be a great way to boost their knowledge of the building they’re working with and the productivity they can experience in that work.
Managing or owning a building is no simple task. With so many features, systems, and people requiring your attention and supervision, it can become overwhelming to stay on top of everything. What if you’re out of town, and you find out that the heating in your building is no longer functioning? How can you make sure the problem is promptly addressed in a time-and-cost effective way?
Building automation systems (BAS) are just one of the many rising trends in building construction and renovation. A good automation system controls factors such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and security alarms. This allows you as the building owner to improve efficiency, save money, and ultimately, maximize the safety of your building.
Your building automation system is like a central nervous system. It streamlines your building’s various systems and operations, integrates them together, and helps a manager or technician easily and thoroughly understand the ins-and-outs of their building. However, when you’re dealing with an outdated or obsolete BAS, then you’re going to be wasting valuable time, resources, and energy on its continued need for updates and repairs.
