Solving the Conundrum of Open Protocols in Building Automation Control Systems

Thursday, December 21, 2017

Even with widely available product flexibility for today’s building automation control systems, building owners and facility directors can struggle with the complexity in communications between automation control systems. Effective building automation requires complex communication between all kinds of different building systems—lights, mechanical equipment, security systems—the list seemingly goes on and on.

Historically, proprietary control systems limited product flexibility, and subjected building owners to potentially increased costs by limiting competition. While reliance on strictly proprietary systems is declining (mainly driven by web based solutions), truly open systems can still be challenging.

What Exactly Are Protocols in Building Automation Control Systems?

Protocols are simply communication and data sharing rules and standards related to building automation equipment that are developed and maintained by independent organizations.
