Making buildings ‘even smarter’
Trend Control Systems will shortly unveil the latest version of its successful IQ VISION software for ‘monitoring, managing, and controlling, smart buildings and estates’.
Buildings and estates’. ‘Packed with features to get the very best’ from a BEMS, IQ VISION integrates Trend controllers, thirdparty devices, and internet protocols, into a centralised software platform that ‘allows modern connected buildings to be managed efficiently’.
IQ VISION is configured using the Tridium Niagara 4 interface. ‘Bold, intuitive, and easy to use’, it features interactive dashboards, dynamic schematics, real-time reports, alarm handling, and occupancy time scheduling.
The latest version, IQ VISION 2.2, reportedly delivers ‘a range of cutting edge improvements unique to Trend’ – including extended controller support, faster device discovery and reliability, and ‘simplified engineering and operation of a BEMS by widening the technical scope of the tasks it can perform’.
Alan Johnstone, Partner Channel Sales leader, said: “With IQ VISION 2.2 we had two clear goals – to make it easier to engineer, and simpler to use. In fact, we have delivered three, with the addition of an allnew Trend Driver that provides unrivalled performance and data security.”
IQ VISION 2.2 also reportedly reduces the number of engineering steps necessary for displaying live data points on a dashboard page. ‘Integration of third-party products is now simpler, more cost-effective, and certified by an independent body, and the identification of faults and ways to make energy savings is easier.’
