Open Building Automation

Integrate your campus’s building automation systems to go beyond BACnet with our Open BAS Strategies

Your commercial facility or campus utilizes building automation systems (BAS) to control and schedule the HVAC equipment in your buildings. Many clients have different BAS systems controlling different buildings or sections of their campus, and therefore are challenged to learn and operate multiple BAS technologies. As if this weren’t difficult enough, the various BAS systems on a campus are often not connected, forcing users to maintain and operate a separate workstation for each BAS system. BuildingLogiX changes this by providing vendor-agnostic open BAS services.

How Our Open BAS Services Work

Our open BAS services connect your BAS and energy systems in a single platform with a single user interface where you can view all significant control, schedule, and energy management data. To us, open BAS means you have a choice. A choice on which contractor provides the best level of service, a choice on which vendor’s hardware goes into the next building expansion, and a choice on who and how programming modifications are performed.

We enable you to have these choices by utilizing the Niagara Framework, and more specifically the open Niagara Framework. With open Niagara, the same programming tool is used at each level of the control system and the programming tool is available for purchase by you or any of your selected contractors. Creating open Niagara systems is the best method to create high performance BAS with choice and flexibility for service, expansion, and programming changes for the life of your building.

Additionally, open Niagara can often be retrofitted onto existing buildings with existing BAS systems. Our open BAS services solve the one-vendor problem by freeing you from that type of restrictive vendor relationship. In the best-case scenario, deploying open Niagara onto an existing BAS system provides a system performance upgrade, a choice in who provides your service and programming, and flexibility for expansion. Even in the worst case with the most restrictive and closed BAS systems, the deployment of open Niagara clears the pathway to grow forward with choice.

When we set up your open building automation systems, we bring in non-proprietary technology that works with various vendors’ BAS equipment. We use an open Niagara framework to create open protocols that allow you to control your building systems throughout your campus.

What Systems Does an Open BAS Control?

Our open BAS services help you control your HVAC systems, indoor air quality, temperature, humidity, and other factors. Our services turn the data your building automation systems produce into usable information and knowledge to create healthy high-performance building operations. Then you can take that data and use it to improve your facilities’ indoor air quality, temperature and humidity, and other factors that influence your occupants’ health and comfort and your building’s performance. When you have access to open BAS services, you can boost your facility’s smart building capabilities by connecting all your HVAC systems. Then you can manage those systems more effectively.

How We Put Your Open BAS Setup Together

When we help develop your facility’s open BAS architecture, we help you assess different building automation system types from various vendors. Then we overlay open Niagara at the enterprise level to enable the existing systems and pieces of equipment to work together and give you a vendor-agnostic open BAS setup with output devices, digital controllers, and network controllers that meet your facility’s energy needs.
