Smart Buildings (Home & BMS)

Many buildings consume large amounts of energy whilst attempting to stabilise their internal environmental parameters, such as temperature control, air quality and lighting. Without a central system to bring all data points together, the overall optimisation becomes impossible and large amounts of energy are wasted on unnecessary temperature and lighting control and total wastage in unoccupied rooms.

In addition, carbon dioxide, humidity, dust and other pollutants adversely affect the productivity, comfort and health of the occupants, any of which can result in dissatisfaction and lost man-hours due to sickness. Without the necessary monitoring and control of all sub systems, often building managers will left in the dark with no warning of problems that exist in the very building they work in.

Unified Microsystems provide modern, flexible, cost effective and expandable Building Automation/Management Systems (BAS/BMS) that continuously monitor and automate the control of pumps, fans, air-flow/fresh-air circulation, motion sensors, lighting systems, HVAC and integration to auxiliary monitoring services such as Security and Fire Detection and Alarm Systems (FDAS).

Building Automation Systems have the following benefits:

  • Lowers utility costs.
  • Return on investment typically within 2 years.
  • Cleaner air flow and improved occupant health.
  • Lighting and cooling with motion detection with auto-shutoff.
  • Scheduling for occupied areas.
  • Reduces occupant complaints with proactive alerts and alarms.
  • Reduces maintenance costs with optimised duty cycling according to demand.
  • Simplified building operation and workflows.

At the core, Haystack tagging and data modelling software is used to monitor and control devices, allowing the Building Operating System (BOS) to manage and leverage data to become a reality with unprecedented capabilities and functionally.

Using modern open standards such as HTML5, the application server and graphic builder tool can run anywhere from mobile to desktop devices, allowing you to build the entire infrastructure and workflows from a secure browser all faster, in more detail and more efficiently than ever before.

By using tagging and data models queries can be used to instantly access data, eliminating the need for time consuming linking processes. With EasyStack, user interface operations are context sensitive so the system already knows the user wants to do and when they want to do it, presenting the right options at the right time all automatically.

EasyStack uses the Haystack open standard, a modern initiative that will streamline working with data IoT (Internet of Things) devices by using standard data formats.

Modern and Flexible Graphics

Graphics are automatically generated, from navigation, point summaries and historical graphs that work across all platforms seamlessly. In addition, custom graphics can be utilised easily by using open standards JavaScript.

Historical Data

Point historical data is always ready for instant retrieval and review, charts can be customised easily with Javascript.

Alarms and Workflows

EasyStack provides an efficient and modern approach to managing alarms and sequences, being able to define once and reuse anywhere

Schedules

With EasyStack, schedules can be created and kinked to equipment instantly, whenever a schedule is changed or new scheduled added, all related links will be updated automatically for the user. This ease of use allows end users to self manage the system, reducing long term support requirements from outside vendors.

Notes and O&M Manauls

Easily add notes to allow easy tracking of activities related to any equipment in the database, even with open/closed status and user assignment. In addition, user manuals, drawings and specifications can be uploaded and made one-click away from the equipment graphic.

Logic Builder

EasyStack allows the creation of complex logic flows, conditionally triggering actions based on inputs and events. A easy to use graphical designer allows even the most advanced of flows to be created in minimal time.

Folio Tag Database

The tag database is at the core of EasyStack, this modern approach of data storage allows the easy design of free-form and dynamic data models. Batch editing and querying allows configuration and changes to be completed much faster than older more monolithic systems.

Database Builder

Data points are defined and organised into groups and tagged accordingly, cfreating real relations that existing between the equipment being monitored and controlled. Points can be defined as with data collected from them and stored historically, or defined as a control point that can be controlled from a schedule.
