One of the challenges today’s commercial building managers face is the need to ensure all the various control systems in their facility can work together efficiently and effectively to provide a comfortable, safe work environment. For many managers, the difficulty of this task is compounded because their building’s owner has replaced individual control systems over the years with the component they deemed was best for the job, without considering whether its operating systems are compatible with the rest of the building control system. These building managers are left to cope with individual control system components that are unable to share information or resources, seriously impairing their ability to create the desired building environment. Using powerful Automated Building Solutions products like Andover Continuum, Advanced Control Corporation can create a building automation solution that will ensure all the control system components in your building will work together seamlessly and efficiently, allowing you to provide a safe and comfortable building environment at your facility.
Advanced Control’s Andover Automated Building Solutions use software that employs the latest open protocol standards to create comprehensive, fully integrated automated systems that can work seamlessly with any installed base of legacy systems. Our building control solutions can even integrate with components that lack an open standard to communicate, via our large collection of more than 200 third-party communication drivers that includes many propriety protocols. Since Andover Continuum software is natively loaded with open protocol support, it is able to work with many other vendors’ products, enabling it to communicate and share information between all your building control systems including fire alarms, CCTV systems, HVAC and lighting controls, and more. This backward compatibility makes Advanced Control’s building automation solutions ideally suited to bridge the past, present, and future building control needs of new and existing facilities of all sizes.
Andover Continuum software creates an IT-friendly system that supports most major communication, desktop IT, and building automation standards including email, SNMP, HTML, Active-X and XML through TCP/IP, OPC, LonWorks, BACnet, Modbus and Ethernet. Because our building automation solutions employ BACnet, an open ASHRAE/ANSI/ISO standard that provides the opportunity for building automation systems to interoperate with one another, Advanced Control can also offer wireless, web-based solutions for both new and existing systems. With our web-based solutions, users can access building controls remotely in real time, controlling and viewing their entire building automation system through a standard web browser. The advanced custom graphics and animations of our web-based building automation solutions create a user-friendly experience that is easy to navigate and use.
Advanced Control also provides Automated Building Solutions for building managers who need cost-effective, stand-alone solutions for unmanned or remote sites. Andover Controls’ integrated small building controller provides a single-board solution that can delivers low cost card-access and HVAC control. Using a network-ready controller that hosts an Ethernet port and supports TCP/IP, SNMP and a built in web server, our small building solution allows you to view your site information from anywhere in the world using a standard web browser. Advanced Control’s Andover small building solutions are ideally suited for use in convenience stores, gas stations, retail stores, and other retail locations.
