One of the biggest challenges for building automation is the multitude of non-interoperable communications protocols that have evolved over the years. Buildings have separate islands of automation for indoor lighting, security systems, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), and other functions. Bridging those islands without losing the considerable investment in each specialized control network—is the path to more effective building automation solutions, as well as to participation in the growing industrial internet of things (IIoT).
Echelon’s smart building technology supports multiple protocols and applications, enabling the convergence of diverse systems—e.g., security, HVAC, lighting, fire detection—onto a single control networking platform.
