One platform, various people, countless advantages

Discover the unique benefits of using Desigo CC

Desigo CC helps you master a broad variety of challenges in the management of high-performing buildings.

Increase property value and protect your investments

With Desigo CC, integrate all building systems – from heating, ventilation and air conditioning to fire safety and security, power, lighting and shading. This interdisciplinary approach enables you to monitor the status of different systems in real-time, exploit synergies, reduce costs and training efforts. Desigo CC also supports future growth and changes in the buildings. 

 

Desigo CC provides the full breadth of application support to ensure that all facilities remain comfortable, productive, and achieve optimal energy and equipment performance. Additionally, it helps to reduce your carbon footprint and offers advanced functionalities to monitor and report CO₂ emissions or performance of energy consumption related to covered space to achieve certifications like LEED thus increasing your building’s value thanks to a green and sustainable image.

Easily adapt buildings to future needs

Desigo CC is continuously innovated and can easily be adapted to the requirements of building operators, facility managers or occupants. With the latest technologies, user-friendly interfaces, trendsetting features, and regular cybersecurity updates, it is always ready for future challenges. Easily add new systems to the building management platform as needed after initial system installation. 

 

The presence of IoT devices and cloud connectivity is constantly growing in today’s market. Thanks to Desigo CC’s openness and the Desigo CC Ecosystem, new technologies are easily implemented, and buildings powered by Desigo CC can easily connect to any smart device or cloud application.

Reducing building operational costs

Desigo CC provides a harmonized workflow across disciplines and products, even from third parties. With a homogeneous integration of all disciplines, it is possible to increase efficiency and lower costs for training, maintenance of system updates, etc. In addition, daily operations like checking an alarm becomes simpler with Desigo CC. If an alarm is triggered by one discipline like fire, easily access other disciplines like security with one click on a live feed of the relevant room.

 

Additionally, multiple client options, user groups and profiles, built-in profiles for building automation, fire safety and security, helps to allocate tasks to the right people. For remote and distributed sites, central management with distributed configurations allows monitoring and commanding the system remotely and receiving remote notifications. With the intuitive cloud application “Event Hub,” control and react to alarms and events from multiple buildings that are connected to Desigo CC.

Enabling tenants to reduce energy costs

Desigo CC provides insights into electrical power distribution in buildings that help to optimize their operation. By integrating multiple disciplines and leveraging the flow of information and alarms from each discipline, you can optimize the performance of any building connected.  Configure a building to provide ideal comfort and efficiency, aided by many native integrations. For example, with the “Power Manager” and “Energy & Power Reports” features, obtain deeper insights regarding power quality and stability of energy systems. Desigo CC collects and transmits the trend series from metering devices and displays the data on dashboards. This creates transparency for tenants, who are interested in their building’s footprint and its contribution to their well-being. 

 

Finally, comprehensive advanced reporting options for topics like consumption, load profiles, maximum power, budget, costs, etc. makes relevant values visible to take the right actions.

Making buildings better – continuously

Desigo CC plays a critical role in creating healthy and self-adapting environments, ensuring high productivity of the people in it. Detailed graphics and assisted event treatment provide more profound insights and enable better decisions. Thanks to its highly optimized and user-centric interface, Desigo CC helps improve event management throughout the facility – and it can be done remotely with the Desigo CC Flex Client web interface.  Furthermore, monitor fire safety systems and video cameras through centralized controls, which allows you to intelligently respond to events. 

 

Desigo CC’s assisted event treatment procedures guide you safely through critical tasks step by step and can be configured to be mandatory or optional, depending on the user. With investigative event treatment, one single click lets you navigate through the system to visualize the logged event. A context-sensitive list of related items allows quick and easy access to all information related to any piece of equipment to address and solve issues.

Feel confident and react quickly and correctly

with Desigo CC you can have everything under control. For example, you can monitor and control unauthorized entries detected by the intrusion system, initiate lighting, and focus the camera on the location. Even if the alarm is triggered by outside conditions like a storm, the system sends a centralized command to the room systems, opening all blinds, and informs about window contact status.

 

Additionally, you can handle access control and combine with other disciplines like lighting and comfort. For instance, after successful authentication access to the room is granted, lights are activated, and HVAC systems are switched to occupied mode. The system also helps to react to temporary noxious emissions, such as from a helicopter landing or vehicles at a loading dock: outside air dampers will close in this case, stopping fresh air intake.

 

Desigo CC is designed to integrate different systems present in the building such as escalator systems, elevators and electrical vehicle charging stations. Thanks to a holistic integration, you can monitor and react to events with confidence.
