Facilities Management Dashboard

Use Casesvg>

Brief: I want a facilities management dashboard that gives an overview of subsystems.

In large industrial, commercial and residential buildings, several Miniservers could be used without being connected in a client/gateway grouping. There are various reason why this might be the case.

For example, individual Miniservers could be controlling separate apartments or individual sub-areas of a large-scale building.

Even if it is important to keep these systems somewhat independent, it can still be necessary to have an overall view of the systems in a facilities management dashboard. With Loxone, exactly this can be achieved.

Solution: Using Loxone to create a building or facilities management dashboard.

Thanks to Tree technology, specific data can be sent from each individual Miniserver and transferred to a central Miniserver. From the online status of peripherals and extensions to error messages. To achieve this we will use Tree Intercommunication between the Miniservers.

A virtual tree output is created from the Miniserver sending the information and then a virtual tree input is created on the central Miniserver.

The central Miniserver displays all relevant information, which is output in various forms, such as status information or system diagrams.

Why you and your customer should consider Loxone for a facilities management dashboard?

In large industrial, commercial and residential buildings, several Miniservers could be used independently of each other. Nevertheless, it can be of great interest for the owners to keep an overview of the bigger picture. By connecting the individual Miniservers with a central Miniserver via Tree Intercommunication, a central overview can be created.

Tree Intercommunication has a big advantage over network connections – as network characteristics often change, e.g. with a change of provider.

The use of Tree Intercommunication creates a reliable basis for a building management system, with a facilities management dashboard, that works in the long term.
