A ‘smart hub’ that lets users ‘take control of door, window and safety systems’ will be launched by GEZE UK at this month’s Smart Buildings Show, which being held from 7-8 November 2018 at the Barbican in London
GEZE Cockpit acts as ‘a brain’ – ‘intelligently integrating door, window and safety technology into building management systems – and giving building designers greater options to create the next generation of smart buildings’. The ‘first of its kind system’, with open interfaces, can be seen on stand F3 in Hall 2. GEZE UK said: “Offering more efficiency, security, and convenience, combined with intelligent smoke and heat extraction and dynamic fire protection to protect targeted escape routes, the GEZE Cockpit can be used ‘standalone’ or integrated into an overarching building management system.”
With its open BACnet standard integration, GEZE Cockpit can be managed remotely using a PC, tablet, or smartphone, providing flexible control via an IO 420 interface. It can monitor external and internal temperatures and provide CO2 management – automatically opening vents to dissipate stale air and allow fresh air into a building. The device also features a night-time ventilation programme ‘which can reduce internal temperatures and provide the ideal climate for those entering the building in the morning’. The system works ‘with any autonomous ventilation system’.
