Honeywell’s new Command and Control Suite turns complex facility data into recommendations and easy-to-implement changes that help to boost business outcomes, lowering costs, minimizing risk, and reducing downtime.
Combining intelligent automation, advanced analytics, and visualization with the simplified user experience of today’s home and mobile electronics, Command and Control Suite links building automation and the enterprise. For example, it can provide a holistic view of a connected building’s video feeds, access control and fire alarms, and pull in relevant information from human-resource applications, helping security personnel track occupants and make sure they exit the facility in the event of an evacuation.
Investing in this type of smart-building technology typically pays for itself within one or two years by delivering operational efficiencies as well as energy savings, a recent report by financial- and professional-services firm Jones Lang LaSalle says.
All components of Command and Control Suite were built with the intuitive, consumer-friendly simplicity of tablets and smartphones, making the technology accessible to both a facility manager and a chief operating officer.
Command Wall, the core of the suite, features map-based visualization and navigation, along with integrated workflows and systemwide integration from a single intuitive touchscreen interface.
Command Wall presents data from multiple systems across a facility while providing context for more informed decision-making. Using progressive disclosure, users can access an enterprisewide view and easily zoom into specific areas to quickly understand and react to issues and opportunities.
A supplement to Command Wall is Incident Workflow, which guides users through scripted responses to security incidents and other emergencies. Additionally, Enterprise Dashboards extend the suite’s real-time visualization by presenting detailed energy data and actionable guidance to help control consumption and boost efficiency.
Command and Control Suite technologies integrate with Honeywell’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) building-management platform.
Command Wall with Incident Workflow and Enterprise Dashboards will be available in the second quarter of 2015.
