Building management on campuses
Modern commercial or public institutions in the life science sector are often dispersed across multiple buildings. To effectively monitor and control all of these buildings, a building management concept with the highest degree of centralization and automation is essential. By consolidating the relevant technologies across your campus into a single platform, we can provide cost-efficient solutions that reliably increase security policy adoption while offering the highest convenience for your employees’ daily routines.
Critical Environment - Technology manual
The manual describes measurement, control, and monitoring of air volume flows and room pressures in buildings with focus on the life science market.
In campus applications, the wrong building management concept can have severe financial concequences: If your buildings’ technological infrastructure consists merely of disparate systems distributed across the various locations, managing them will be highly inefficient and therefore time-consuming and costly. For example, employing different access control systems independently from each other will increase the likelihood of inconsistencies with access permissions and complex processes – and ultimately, increased operating expenses. With a building management solution optimized for centralized operation, you can reliably avoid such issues.
We have developed specialized building management systems that can fulfil this role in your campus facilities. They are assembled from various subsystems (access control, video surveillance, mass notification etc.) that are seamlessly integrated with comprehensive, centralized command and control functions. This allows you to reliably, scalably and efficiently manage all buildings across the campus, minimize human errors and resolve incidents within seconds. In the end, and wiith the help of conveniently displayed information on energy consumption as well as extensive benchmarking functions, you’ll be able to significantly decrease your on-going operating costs.
Improve your business with Siemens Building Technologies
Fully integrated control systems for your campus facilitiesOur extensive portfolio of management systems for campus buildings includes standardized solutions for all application scenarios. Through comprehensive integration of all components, we combine these systems into single solutions that meet the specific requirements of each facility. Explore our products below for further information.
Our access control solutions centrally record user activities and provide a clear overview of all persons present. They combine information from the access control server, personnel files, plant and maintenance data as well as access history in real time to decide whether a person will be allowed to access a certain area at a certain time.
Enterprise-wide security solutions from Siemens help mitigate risks, exposure and the costs associated with safety- and security-related business interruptions, allowing corporations to focus on their core business, ensuring maximum customer satisfaction – consistently, profitably and responsibly.
Emergency voice communication
Our intelligent evacuation systems are activated automatically in case of an incident and can be configured both for live voice announcements and playback of pre-recorded messages. Clear instructions and descriptions of the emergency situation enable the people inside the building to evacuate the danger area quickly and orderly. This effectively prevents the outbreak of panic in hazardous situations.
Our S-LINE fire detectors are equipped with our uniquely intelligent ASAtechnology, which allows exceptionally precise and rapid fire detection and alarming. Aspirating smoke detection ensures earliest possible detection even if air flows or air conditioning and ventilation systems prevent smoke from reaching the fire detectors.
Our modern security systems meet the complete range of security requirements and can be installed in any desired configuration. Through integration of intrusion detection with other security disciplines such as video surveillance or access control, we help you increase security while saving costs at the same time.
Clear communication is always important – whether it’s a routine message about avoiding a full parking lot or a stressful emergency situation where people have to be guided out of harm’s way. Desigo Mass Notification is an efficient and flexible application that uses today’s most common communication technologies to provide notification functionalities to the Desigo CC building management platform ensuring that your message gets through to the right people.
Our video surveillance systems reliably monitor sensitive areas and record all processes before and after an event. If a critical deviation such as an unauthorized person is detected, an alarm is transmitted to the control center automatically as well as the camera in the relevant area activated.
Command and control
Today, businesses and public buildings usually have more than one security system installed. Powerful command and control systems offer a one-source management application that combines all of them into one system. Command and control systems offer centralized alarm management, supervision and control to secure the safety of people, processes and assets.
