Smart solution for building management

The increasing popularity of smart building solutions is allowing you to manage your premises at the touch of a button, and Geze has introduced an interface module that will draw its door and window technology into that network.

The IO 420 connects into the BACnet system – the standardised global data communication system that is independent of manufacturers and specific technologies – to manage light, heating, ventilation and alarm systems.

It provides a fast, simple and standardised integration which works with Geze window drives, automatic door systems, heat and smoke ventilation products, and safety technology products to provide heat and smoke ventilation, secure escape routes and provide a more pleasant and healthier indoor climate.

The interface enables a central control of automatic door systems and can monitor their status, showing which operating mode they are in and display options for alarms, making it particularly suitable for offices, passageways, shopping centres and public buildings.

Emergency exit protection can also be incorporated ensuring automatic release of electrical lock and swing door drives, immediate detection of abuse or incorrect operation, and motor lock control – identifying its current locking status.

Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director of Geze UK, said: “The IO 420 is designed to be scalable and therefore suitable for a wide range of premises – from small rooms with a few windows to entire buildings with complete integration of automatic systems.”
