Organisations today must invest in a range of electronic systems, such as CCTV, intruder detection, access control, fire, lighting, heating and ventilation to ensure the proper functionality of their business premises. To manage your premises in an effective and cost-efficient way, these systems can be integrated into a single interface control solution.
The shrinking cost and increasing capabilities of microprocessors has resulted in the proliferation of smart devices in buildings, machines and homes. The growth of the Internet, the move toward energy deregulation, and the aggregation of facilities under a single owner or management company makes interconnectivity and control of diverse devices, including legacy systems, essential as a means to achieving greater operational efficiencies. The lack of standardisation among these devices, however, has stood as a barrier to achieving this goal. By providing a cost effective solution for connecting and controlling disparate devices in a unified manner, ClearView can unlock the potential for new services and business opportunities.
Truly integrated, intelligent buildings were once difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. Open system infrastructures have changed that. ClearView is an open systems provider with extensive implementation and integration experience. By utilising open systems, truly integrated building systems are now able to be implemented. With an open systems common protocal structure, devices from multiple vendors can cooperate as part of a single integrated network. Security products can sense the location of all the people in a building and share that information with lighting, heating, and air conditioning components.
As independent integrators ClearView will choose best-in-breed sub-systems from different manufacturers to provide the optimum solution. New control functions can be added in low-cost, compatible increments. Open supervision systems utilising Internet and Intranet technology allow clients to control and monitor their systems seamlessly on a global basis.
